During a discussion on Monday, NBC’s Today show crew could barely contain their enthusiasm at the prospect of Hillary Clinton running for president again in 2016, with new third-hour co-host Willie Geist proclaiming: “Can you think of a more qualified human being? She lived in the White House for eight years with another President, she was a United States senator, and now she’s got every world leader on speed dial, so there’d be no questions about her qualifications.” [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump]

Early in the conversation, Geist touted how “there are already polls out in Iowa, she’s got 58% of the vote for 2016″ and argued her run was “inevitable.” Fellow co-host Savannah Guthrie thought Clinton could definitely be persuaded: “…if the head of the party comes to her in two years, if everybody comes around and says, ‘You’ve got to do it, you could be the first female president,’ I think it would be hard for her to say no.” News reader Natalie Morales added: “Are we ready for a female president? I think most of America probably is.”
