Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, authors of the 2008 presidential campaign book “Game Change,” see a good chance that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will run for president in 2016, reports Politico.

On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Wednesday, co-host Willie Geist asked, “What are the odds this morning that Hillary Clinton runs for president in 2016?” Heilemann’s response: “99.4 percent, I think very high,” Politico reports.

Halperin, an editor from Time magazine, wasn’t quite as bold. “A little lower,” he said. “I think that if Joe Biden wins re-election [as vice president] and runs [for president four years from now], she’s much less likely to run.”

The exchange came after an Op-Ed piece in The New York Times Tuesday by Maureen Dowd talking up the idea of a Clinton candidacy in 2016.

Dowd thinks Clinton is the answer to what she sees as Republican attacks against women. “The Republican assault on women does provide a glide path to the White House both for Obama in 2012 and Hillary in 2016,” she wrote. “If women are so vulnerable, they may need one of their own. Is she [Clinton] inevitable?”

In discussing Clinton months ago, Democratic strategist James Carville, who has worked for both Hillary and Bill Clinton, said that once someone runs for president, he/she doesn’t lose the desire easily.
