No Hillary

Hllary Clinton will not run for President in 2004. But it has nothing to do with October 4 being the anniversary of Bill Clinton's formal decision to seek that office.

Hillary Clinton will not seek the presidency because the economy is improving - and the greatest part of a presidential election, especially one involving an incumbent, is whether the economy is performing in the run up to the election.

And the economy is and will be performing well enough.

And while it is highly unusual for foreign affairs to drive a presidential election, even the situation in Iraq offers less and less hope to a Bush challenger.

Senator Clinton knows all that, and she's not stupid. It's that simple.
