Hillary Clinton has not made a decision on whether she will run for president in 2016, however she already has people backing her if she chooses to.

Sen. Chuck Schumer, the third-ranking Democrat in the Senate, endorsed Clinton during a speech Saturday night at an Iowa Democratic Party dinner. “Hillary’s experience is unrivaled and her vision is unparalleled,” Schumer said. “It’s time for a woman to be president,” he added. “And so tonight, here in Iowa, and I won’t get this opportunity again, I am urging Hillary Clinton to run for president and, when she does, she will have my full and unwavering support.” He continued saying, “With Clinton, Schumer said, the party can “vanquish the Ted Cruz, tea party Republicans in 2016.”

In response to Schumer’s endorsement, Clinton’s office released a statement saying, “Senator Schumer is an old colleague and an even older friend, and what he said about her is very flattering. Ultimately though this is a very personal decision that she hasn’t made.”


Iowa state Sen. Liz Mathis says Schumer’s endorsement excited her. “It paves a way into her election,” said Mathis. “Primarily women in the party have come out in support of her, so it’s very good to see male leaders in the party, too. It’s important that everyone in the Democratic Party come out.”

Recent polls show that Clinton could be the top contender for the Democratic party if she decided to run. However, Clinton is in no hurry to finalize a decision. “I’m not in any hurry. I think it’s a serious decision, not to be made lightly, but it’s also not one that has to be made soon,” Clinton told New York magazine.

    People hated Bush and political correctness demanded that we had to have a black President, so we voted for Obama.

    People hate Obama and political correctness demands that we have to have a woman President, so we will vote for Hillary.

    Face it America — this country is so screwed. Our economy is weak, our leaders are corrupt, our leaders literally aren’t doing anything, our military is stretched thin, we are wasting trillions in useless wars, we care more about spying on our own citizens than fixing the country, and the world is turning on us.

    You are witnessing the beginning of the end for us. Funny thing is that we will be the cause of our own demise. Not some terrorist or foreign enemy.
