76. Assuming she's the monster you think she is

She probably won't have to do much. The party with the greatest share of the votes is the rightwing New Democracy bunch who were in power already. They will have 3 days to form a coalition government with PASOK, the nominally Socialist party that was elected to clean up the financial mess in 2009, but which fell on its sword when it accepted the austerity for bailout plan pushed by the northern tier of EU states, basically committing the party equivalent of suicide to protect Greece's EU membership. Even that coalition of enemies falls short of the seats required for a working government by two seats, which means the coalition has to be rounded out with a far far far right party.

In that case, Hillary's job would already be done for her.

If that effort to form a coalition fails, the second place finisher Syriza (the upstart keepin-it-real, anti-austerity-for-bailouts Socialist front) gets a shot at forming a coalition government, They'd be starting with the remnants of PASOK , which was completely arseholed by the Greek electorate for giving into the bailout blackmail, going from 160 seats to just 41. Obviously they will then have to go fishing for coalition partners among the splinter rightwing crazies.

And if that effort fails, then 3rd place finisher PASOK gets a chance to form a coalition government...

If no coalition is worked out at the end of one month, new elections will be held.

Since no party will likely hold an absolute majority after fresh elections, the first place finisher will have three days to form a coalition....
