The results will only further propel the current narrative surrounding Clinton's undeniable power leading into the next presidential election, which was the topic of last week's New York Times Magazine cover story and Time's cover story the week before.

Clinton has not yet announced her plans for 2016, since you know, we're only one month into 2014. But things are looking pretty good for her.
