Hillary Clinton fans looking to the stage of NYC’s Lincoln Center for signs of a 2016 presidential bid should probably lower their expectations ... not that they will.

Her speech at the Women in the World Summit was her second speaking appearance this week, reviving rumors that she will again seek the White House.

In 2016. That's Hillary Clinton for you, strong enough to cast a shadow over an election almost four years away, even as she denies any plans to run in it.

“I get all the enthusiasm there is for her to run,” Mo Elleithee, a spokesman for Clinton’s 2008 bid, said. “But my advice to everyone is to calm down."

"If she decides to look at the race, I think she’ll do so at the appropriate time.”

There have been presumptions that former First Lady, Senator and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will make another White House run come 2016.

She leads a recent 2016 presidential poll (yes, there was one), and given her resume and name recognition at this point, that's not a real surprise.

But this is: Another, even more intriguing idea floating around the web this week is that current FLOTUS Michelle Obama could be her running mate.

“All due respect for President Obama and Vice President Biden, but that would truly be a dream team,” former Clinton spokeswoman Karen Finney said.

A 2016 presidential poll suggests that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton (D) are the ones to beat.

According to a Quinnipiac University survey, Christie edges two fellow Republicans, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida.

  • Chris Christie in a Tux

Christie would also defeat two prominent Democratic candidates, Vice President Joe Biden and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the poll showed.

But in a head-to-head battle with Hillary Clinton - the clear Democratic frontrunner if she runs - Christie would lose by approximately eight points.

Former Republican V.P. candidate Paul Ryan said Sunday on Meet the Press that the nation's fiscal crisis would be different right now under Hillary Clinton.

“Look, if we had a [Hillary] Clinton presidency, if we had Erskine Bowles as chief of staff ... I think we would have fixed this fiscal mess by now," Ryan said.

"[But] that’s not the kind of presidency we’re dealing with right now.”

Bowles was chief of staff to former President Bill Clinton, and currently co-chairs the Campaign to Fix The Debt, a bipartisan deficit reduction effort.

President Obama's inaugural address took place just hours ago, but V.P. Joe Biden is already hinting that he wants to replace his boss.

In 2016, that is. At a gathering of influential Iowans Saturday, the gaffe-prone Veep said, "I'm proud to be the president of the United States."

Biden, who unsuccessfully sought the presidency in 1988 and 2008, will be 73 in 2016, making him the oldest person ever elected president.

There's also the matter of Hillary Clinton, Obama's outgoing Secretary of State and the odds-on favorite for the Democratic nomination ... if she runs.

Clinton would be 69 and the second-oldest president elected (after Ronald Reagan), incidentally. Whether either actually runs is anyone's guess.

Still, here are other recent hints that Biden is thinking about it:

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie appeared on Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update to chat with Seth Meyers about Hurricane Sandy relief and more.

While he ruffled GOP feathers by praising President Obama's response to the storm, the outspoken governor's crisis management earned him well-deserved bipartisan praise.

Not that it didn't come at a cost; Christie told Meyers he's worn that same wet fleece for three weeks. At least New Jersey residents are patient, he noted ... yeah, right.

It's never too early to start thinking about the 2016 election. Okay, maybe it is, but those who have like the prospects of Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush.

Yes, a Clinton-Bush White House race. Can you imagine?

Hillary Clinton vs. Jeb Bush

By 2016, eight years after Barack Obama succeeded George W. Bush and outlasted Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary, both political dynasties could rise again.
