If the health care bill is successful, a very high likelihood, it seems to reinforce Hillary Clinton as the likely Democratic nominee in 2016. Obviously, it's way, way too early to think seriously about this. But she won't be that old, she's done a fine job as Secretary of State, she has a huge set of supporters, and she's always been associated with health care.

Who knows what happens in the next 6 years, but I wouldn't be a bit surprised if Obama gave her his tacit support and let every insider know it.
