  Original Published: 11/5/2013 Run, Hillary, run! That was the message from New York senator Chuck Schumer this past weekend, endorsing Hillary Clinton for President in 2016. Last week, all of the sitting female democratic senators reportedly sent her the same message. They've made up their minds. But has she? Brianna Keilar has more. "Run, Hillary run. If you run, you'll win and we'll all win." An enthusiastic high-profile endorsement from Senator Chuck Schumer. At the Iowa Democratic Party's annual Jefferson Jackson Dinner, he pressed Hillary Clinton to run in 2016. "It's time for a woman to be president," said Schumer. "And so, tonight here in Iowa, and I won't get this opportunity again, I am urging Hillary Clinton to run for president." He's not alone, as a group of 16 Democratic women in the Senate feel the same way. All of them signed a lettr encouraging her to run, according to a Democratic source who said Kay Hagan talked about the still-to-be-released letter at a fundraising event last week. The most recent CNN/ORC Poll of likely Democratic presidential contenders shows Clinton with a huge lead. Some 65 percent of Democrats polled chose her, with Vice President Joe Biden a very distant second. The Republican field is a little more crowded. Chris Christie, Paul Ryan, Rand Paul, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz among the favorites of Republican voters. But it's the New Jersey Governor getting all the buzz. Especially since his campaign seems to be as much about 2016 as the Garden State. "It sounds like you're planning for a message beyond New Jersey. Is thata fair assessment, listening to you today?" he was asked on NBC's Meet the Press. "I'm not planning for it, I just think it's inevitable," said Christie. It certainly is with comments like this one: "I can walk and chew gum at the same time, Christine," said Christie. "I can do this job and also deal with my future. And that's exactly what I do." But a new book on the 2012 election, out this week, claims Mitt Romney crossed Christie off his list of potential runningmates for failing to disclose information about a number of issues, including his health, though Romney himself, dismissed those concerns. "With regards to his health, his health is very solid, very good," said Romney. "There's not an issue there. Chris could easily become our nominee and save our party and help get this nation on the right track again. They don't come better than Chris Christie."
