FILE - In this Nov. 1, 2012, file photo, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton makes her speech at the Albanian Parliament in capital Tirana. Relieved to see the long, costly 2012 presidential race end? The 2016 campaign is closer than you think. In some subtle ways, the jockeying to succeed Barack Obama or Mitt Romney already has begun.
