(HuffPost) Hillary Clinton may get some unlikely support from the right if she decides to run for president in 2016.

During a HuffPost Live conversation about a New York Times op-ed that explores Clinton's relationship with neoconservatives, Mother Jones Washington bureau chief David Corn explained that neocons have a political history of seeking to "burrow into one camp and establish a foothold somewhere," meaning they'll be on the hunt for any candidate that best suits them.

6. She's already getting it.

 

“...I very much was supportive of Hillary Clinton the last go-round,” he said. “I held fundraisers for her.” People close to Blankfein say the same calculus applies to a Jeb Bush-Hillary Clinton race as it would to a Christie-Clinton contest. “Those would be two very good choices and we’d be perfectly happy with them......" ~ Lloyd Blankfein
