NEW YORK, March 14 (UPI) -- Political writers Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, co-authors of "Game Change," say there's a good chance Hillary Clinton will run for president in 2016.

In an interview Wednesday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Heilemann said he thinks there is a "99.4" percent chance the secretary of state will run for president. Halperin said he thinks the odds are slightly lower, Politico reported.

"I think that if Joe Biden wins re-election [as vice president] and runs, she's much less likely to run."

The prediction was made during a discussion about a column in The New York Times that says Clinton's run for president may be inevitable.

"Women who assumed that electing Obama would lift all minority boats are beginning to think: Maybe he's not enough," columnist Maureen Dowd wrote.

Clinton has said she has no interest in running for president in 2016.
