The pieces are beginning to fall into place. According to reports, Jim Messina, the head of President Obama’s reelection campaign in 2012, is in talks to join the board of Priorities USA (the multimillion-dollar pro-Obama Super PAC) and turn it into a vehicle for a possible Hillary Clinton run in 2016. He would be joined by longtime Clinton adviser John Podesta. One of the potential holdups in the talks: Vice President Joe Biden, whose own intentions in 2016 remain unknown.
