Jane Pauley, who campaigned for Barack Obama in 2008 against Hillary Clinton as she declared “I want to see the cool, steady hand of Barack Obama on that Bible on Inauguration Day,” on CBS’s Sunday Morning pleaded for Hillary Clinton to run for President: “If not you, who? Who is the viable woman of either party who could win a primary nomination in 2016 if not you?”

In the promotional segment for Clinton’s new book, Pauley complained “it takes two pages to cover the list of countries that have already had a woman leader,” citing “Bangladesh, Indonesia, Latvia, Liberia, Lithuania, the United Kingdom, of course.” She fretted: “Are we waiting for alphabetical order?”
