There's no Mystery About the Honorable Hillary Clinton

People who continue to speculate about whether of not America's foremost female statesman will run for President of the United States must be horrible players of the popular Clue board game. 

I believe Hillary Clinton has several "charms" in her "intent to run" campaign envelope.  A new Hillary website is now launched, she's done virtually nothing to dissuade speculators about her political future.  Rather than become a temporary political recluse, there's a newly published portrait of her glowing face without the therapeutic corrective eyeglasses she's worn since experiencing a recent concussion.

In spite of her very public life, Mrs. Clinton is a remarkably private person.  She has no reason to launch an updated website unless she wants to remain in the limelight.  After all, being a former Secretary of State carries no particular status, so why a website? In fact, Mrs. Clinton has more clout as a former First Lady (FLOTUS) than as a former Secretary of State. 

Hillary Clinton has lived in the limelight since she was the First Lady of Arkansas. There's very little chance she can stand idly in the side lines when her life has been on the front lines of modern history- including the killing of Osama Bin Laden.

Most important, Mrs. Clinton realizes how her decision to run for President prevents other Democratic candidates from jumping into the political ring.  Likewise, her probable candidacy keeps many Republicans from becoming too "presidentially" ambitious.

All the above notwithstanding, the number one "charm" in Mrs. Clinton's presidential envelope is her gender. Eventually, America will elect a woman president and Mrs. Clinton is the best qualified for the job.  Her international respect and political skills give her the inside track to being the first female in our history to officially hold the office.  Therefore, there's no reason for her to step aside, thus allowing some other woman, who will likely be less qualified than she is, to win this historic limelight.

Those who writ clueless blogs or engage in predication about whether or not Mrs. Clinton will run for President are cluttering cyberspace and social media with electronic noise. 

Mrs. Clinton will run for President in 2016, presuming her health holds up and the world order continues to call for her leadership. Otherwise, if she intended not to run for the highest office in the world, she would simply disappear into political shadows, write a book or two and speak at charity events.

There's no mystery about Mrs. Clinton's intentions. She has already given us many clues and I, for one,would be honored to help her win the election.
