With US presidential campaign over, now it's time for 2016

Hillary Clinton

When you're in a crisis situation like that, and you're the leader of the state, and doing everything you can to restore power and water and put food in the hands of your citizens that Gov. Christie cares so much about, politics goes out the window, she said. Still, Christie could face negative attack ads over his bear hug of Obama from other Republicans in the party's presidential primary contest should he run. And he may face a tough fight for re-election in New Jersey next year.

Bobby Jindal

Louisiana Governor Jindal, 41, is an Indian-American who could help the Republican Party extend its appeal beyond whites. He is well-liked by conservatives for education reforms he put in place in Louisiana, and he received high marks for his handling of the 2010 BP oil spill that shattered fishing communities on the Gulf coast. He was on Romney's vice presidential running mate list. But when given a big opportunity on the national stage, he was thought to have flubbed the chance when he delivered the Republican response to Obama's 2009 speech to a joint session of Congress.

Condoleezza Rice

Rice, who will be 58 on Nov. 14, is a former secretary of state and national security adviser for Republican President George W. Bush. Her name pops up on potential candidates' lists despite regular denials of political intentions. She received a prominent speaking role at the Tampa convention and gave one of the more memorable speeches. An African-American, Rice was raised during the segregation era in Alabama.

When she left Washington, Rice returned to a teaching position at Stanford University, and was one of the first two women to be granted membership to formerly male-only Augusta National Golf Club, which holds the annual Masters tournament. As a close confidante of Bush, she has held the levers of power. She would face questions about her tenure in the Bush administration when the United States invaded Iraq over false charges that it possessed weapons of mass destruction.
