Hillary Clinton or Mitt Romney for president in 2016: Who would get your vote?



By RYAN GORMAN

Rumors have been swirling that former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton and Governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney will soon announce runs at the White House.

Clinton visited Iowa, where she placed third in the 2008 straw poll, over the weekend and one of Romney's biggest donors reportedly insists the former Bain Capital exec will run, but would either get your vote?

Hillary and former President Bill Clinton spent the weekend in the Hawkeye State stumping for fellow Democrats. She spoke like a candidate.

"Hello Iowa. I'm back!" She said while making an appearance on behalf of Senator Tom Harkin, according to CNN.

When asked if she would run in 2016, Hillary said: "It is true, I am thinking about it." She basked in adulation as many urged her to "just do it!"

Possible Democratic challengers include current Vice President Joe Biden and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.



The Democratic field is wide open since President Barack Obama is entering his second and final term in office. A number of democratic candidates are expected to join the fray, but Clinton has long been considered a favorite.

Romney has publicly shot down any speculation he would again seek office, but polls have consistently placed him at the top of the Republican list of potential candidates that includes New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush.

Major Romney donor Anthony Scaramucci, founder and managing partner of SkyBridge Capital, told Fox Business on Monday that he feels Romney will take one more run at the White House.

"A couple of factors could happen: If Gov. Jeb Bush drops out or declares that he's not going to run, I think that puts Gov. Romney in [the race]," said Scaramucci, according to Business Insider. "I can tell you right now. The governor has a very strong following, including myself. And he'd be my No. 1 draft pick."

Scaramucci was once national finance co-chair of the Romney campaign.

"I think he's going to do it," Scaramucci said. "I don't think there's any reason for him not to do it."

If the election were held today, who would you vote for?
