(Newser) – Hillary Clinton in 2016? New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand says she'll be among those pushing for it. Gillibrand, who took over Clinton's Senate seat after Clinton left to become secretary of state, sat down with BuzzFeed to discuss women in politics. "I'm going to be one of the first to ask Hillary to run in 2016," she says.

Clinton "would be incredibly well-poised to be our next Democratic president," adds Gillibrand. "Her experience as secretary of state has not only elevated her stature and experience, but she's proven she's someone who can get things done."

Hillary is the pink slime of Democratic politics. Whoever wants this tired old horse to "run" is looking for a Republican landslide in 2016.
