With two years until the next presidential election, a new GALLUP Poll suggests if Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton were to challenge President Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2012, currently, she would have the support of 37% of Democrats nationally, while 52% would still support Obama.
If Hillary Clinton decides to challenge President Obama in 2012, she finds herself in a unique position. HillPAC, Ms. Clinton’s political action committee is still operational and accepting donations. Clinton remains wildly popular in the U.S. and abroad and, she’s built a resume of solid accomplishments apart from being the wife of a former U.S. president including a two-term U.S. senator from New York, and current U.S. Secretary of State.
After nearly two years of Barack Obama flailing about as president, Hillary Clinton is looking more attractive to me with each passing day.
