Argh. We’re still experiencing heavy-duty election fatigue, but evidently, to some people, it’s never too soon to start planning ahead. Just one week later after Obama was reelected president, Buffalo News is already pushing for Hillary Clinton to fill the empty chair in 2016:
We’ve barely finished a bruising, expensive campaign for president, but it’s not too early to be thinking about who would make an excellent candidate for the presidency in 2016 – particularly if there is a conspicuously capable individual already on the political scene.
[Hillary Clinton] would bring vastly more leadership, experience and judgment to the White House, compared with its current occupant.
Buffalo News concluded:
For the country’s sake, and because she clearly is the best candidate, we hope the competing factions in national Democratic politics will coalesce to make her the nominee.
For Twitterers of all political stripes, the Hillary 2016 talk is happening way too soon:
Yes. Please stop.
