Hillary Clinton, Michael Kelly

It's time to just call it: Hillary Clinton is going to be the next President of the United States.

We have arrived at this conclusion, not by some sort of fancy polling system (child's play), but by unearthing this important fact:

Douglas Stamper has agreed to work for Hillary Clinton.

Now, if you watch House of Cards, you know that this means. The election is essentially over, because what Doug Stamper wants, Doug Stamper gets.  (Even if he has to, you know, blackmail, murder, destroy, strangle…blah blah blah. We all have our hobbies.)

And actor Michael Kelly, the man behind Doug Stamper (President Frank Underwood's ruthless sidekick), tells E! News he fully supports Hilary and has even offered his services to her campaign.

"I was with many people who are close to her at the White House Correspondents Dinner," Kelly reveals. "And I said, ‘Look, I will knock on doors if need be. And they said, ‘We might be calling you!' And I was like, ‘Alright!'" Kelly added that his plan of attack is to simply look everyone in the eye with Stamper's trademark stone-cold-sober (he is now) stare and ask quietly:  "Are you voting for Hillary?"

All joking aside, Hillary definitely has Mike Kelly's vote. "If she asked me to knock on doors, I'm there for her," he says. "I think she's an incredibly bright woman, a strong woman, and someone who like President Obama works form the heart. That's what is important to me."

Kevin Spacey (House of Cards' POTUS) was a bit more reserved in his support, but said of Hillary's decision to run: "I think it's fantastic that she's announced and she's out there, and I wish her well."

As for what's ahead on House of Cards, and whether [Spoiler Alert if you are not caught up!] Frank Underwood is headed for a downward political spiral now that Claire (Robin Wright) has left Frank, Kelly just laughed at the notion:

"I mean, we're two pretty strong guys!" he said of Frank and his Chief of Staff, Doug Stamper. "I think we can make it through…We were both down for a whole entire season. If you think about it, the whole season everyone was falling down and maybe it's time to see them come back. That's what I'm hoping anyway."
