Bernard Goldberg: Hillary Clinton will run for president in 2012

Yes, he's a right wing reporter / pundit with little or no inside contacts in the Clinton camp. He could be looking to stir up trouble for the sake of stirring up trouble. But . . .

I know the next presidential election is more than two years off, and all sorts of things can happen between now and then. But I am predicting right here, right now, that Hillary Clinton will run for president in 2012 - yes 2012 -- challenging President Obama for their party's nomination.
If it's occurring to millions of Americans who voted for Obama, it must be occurring to Hillary Clinton too: The magic is gone. Barack Obama can't walk on water no matter how hard his fans in the media tried to turn him into the messiah. And that hope and change thing? Well, it isn't working out the way it was supposed to, either.

. . . Yes, 2012 is a long, long way off. Between now and then, all sorts of good things can happen. Democrats may cut spending by hundreds of billions. They may cut taxes -- on everyone, even the rich. The economy may take off. Unemployment may fall to five percent. And the Tooth Fairy may leave a few trillion dollars under Barack Obama's pillow to bail us out of the deficit crisis that is driving America into bankruptcy.

But just in case miracles don't happen, look out for Hillary.
