A - It would be silly for Clem to just bump into another really nice guy who takes Lee's role as a teacher and caretaker
B - It would make the choices of Season 1 have less meaning. With an open ending, we can all choose our own way of teaching Clem and possibly be right. By continuing Clem's story in Season 2, all of those "Clementine will remember this" actions will be pointless.
If they intended for it to be ambiguous i think they would have left it at the final scene instead of adding that extra post-credits one. Even showing Clem alone in the countryside would have been enough for interpretation but i think they're obviously driving the story somewhere with the two shadowy figures.
If they use saves from season 1, maybe her personality against characters in season 2(if she's in it) will be based upon your actions and choices as Lee.
