Clinton vs. Rice is best bet for 2016..?
Clinton vs. Rice is U.S. best bet for 2016
Commentary: Women are better investors, money managers, leaders
By Paul B. Farrell, MarketWatch
SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (MarketWatch) — Next? Hillary vs Jeb, 2016? Another Clinton vs. another Bush? The matchup has a rock-star ring. Both already jockeying for position ... feel like heirs to dynasties with divine right ... two marquee symbols of major political parties ... both fit neatly into the new centrist ideologies emerging from the latest election ... fit for a new age when both parties will be forced by economics as well as political and demographic realities to compromise in the near-term ... to survive as parties and a viable nation in the New America.
But what’s best for America? It’s obvious: Women are America’s new voting power-brokers. For that play, you can bet the early money’s on Hillary Clinton vs. Condoleezza Rice in the 2016 presidential race.
Yes, Jeb Bush is an old-guard favorite, even stronger with Marco Rubio on the ticket. But the time has come, 2012 proved women are America’s new voting bloc.
Condoleezza Rice, the 66th United States Secretary of State.
So what’s really best for 21st century America: a strong woman leader and the Hillary vs. Condi matchup guarantees it. Americans are tired of costly, irrational wars racking up trillions in debt. Men are natural warriors, whether in defense budgeting, stock trading or with some deep psychological need to dominate.
Women think very differently. Their mind-set is exactly what the new America needs for effective 21st century global leadership. So let’s start with a survey of the research on why women are better investors.
Men love thrills, playing casino games, chasing bulls, risking crashes
Research proves that women are better investors than men and, by extension, better at handling money, deficits and debt — and likely with fiscal cliffs. A few years ago Wall Street Journal columnist Jason Zweig quoted well-known finance professors Brad Barber and Terrance Odean. Their research proved “women’s risk-adjusted returns beat those of men by an average of about one percentage point annually ... women trade less frequently, hold less volatile portfolios.”

1. This again already?
Clinton might run, although I doubt it. Rice is not going to run for president. I guess pundits coming off the election need something to write about.
