Hillary-Michelle in 2016?
Hillary-Michelle in 2016? Hillary Clinton hasn't said if she'll run for president in 2016, but there are those hoping she'll run -- and pick fellow (future) former first lady Michelle Obama as her running mate.

No conversation about the 2016 presidential race is complete without one Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic nominee (and overall frontrunner), should she decide to enter the race.

But what about Clinton-Obama -- as in, Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama?

The current first lady has brushed aside suggestions that she would be a candidate for political office after her husband leaves the White House in four years, even, at one point, joking about throwing her hat in the ring to host "The Tonight Show" when Jay Leno retires.

But Obama's disinterest -- and Clinton's silence so far on her own political future -- has done nothing to dissuade Democrats gunning for a "former first ladies club" ticket.

"All due respect for President Obama and Vice President Biden, but that would truly be a dream team for America," said Karen Finney, a former spokeswoman for the Democratic Party and Clinton. "Both women are proven effective leaders who've raise children, so dealing with Congress would be a snap."

"'First lady' ticket for president" bumper stickers have popped up on Cafe Press, which according to the Washington Examiner, reported a 60 percent increase in sales from December to March.
