Stopping Hillary

Bill Kristol sees the Time cover story and says "Stop."
Why should she run?
To be the first woman president.
She can remember her electoral past.
The easiest way Hillary can be stopped is if she stops herself. She can choose not to run. Indeed, Time reports “on good authority” that “Hillary Clinton has not decided whether to run for president again.” There is a reasonable chance she’ll decide not to. She’s an intelligent woman. She remembers that her last experience of running for president wasn’t fun and didn’t end well.
I think she decision depends on the Senate races in 2014. If Republicans gain control of the chamber, the next two years will be no fun for President Obama.
And no boost to anybody from his party going into 2016.
Besides, she could have been the first woman president in 2009.
That bit of history didn't entice Democrats then.
