The woman who replaced Hillary Clinton in the Senate says the secretary of State should make another run at the presidency. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., told the website BuzzFeed, that she was “going to be one of the first to ask Hillary to run in 2016."

"I think she would be incredibly well-poised to be our next Democratic president," Gillibrand added. "I think she's extremely well prepared. I think her experience as secretary of State has not only elevated her stature and experience, but she's proven she's someone who can get things done and I think she'd be an outstanding candidate."

For her part, Clinton has not said much about her future but speculation is that she will leave her current post as Secretary of State after the 2012 elections. However, others have also speculated about a future in elected office. "I always assume that if people run, they will run again,” former Bill Clinton aide James Carville said according to BuzzFeed.
