So this puts Hillary in an awkward position, because she obviously has a lot of supporters still - like it's not hard enough to work for POTUS, right? Now he has to feel like he's looking over his back at her.

I'll answer my own ;-)


<1) Do you think Hillary is considering a run in 2012? Testing the waters, so to speak? >


I think she probably has been testing the waters. In case a big scandal occurs with Obama or his approval reaches numbers he can't come back from. Otherwise I think she's waiting for 2016.


<2) Is there any way the Dems would put her forth instead of Obama as a candidate?>


Only if there was a really bad scandal or approval ratings in say, the 30's. I don't see this happening, though.


<3) Would you vote for her if she does?>


I liked her last go around, even being conservative. But it completely depends who the Repubs put forth. It's hard to vote Independent, feels like a waste of a vote.

I think she might do well if she turned independent and teamed with a strong conservative turned independent. People are sick of the status quo.

My DH who doesn't like her at all has admitted more than once and from the beginning that she would have been the far better choice than what we got. So depending on who the opponents were she might do better than you'd think. But I think she also might do better as the VP nominee. Too many still dislike her too much. Although it might be interesting to see her as an independent nominee with Sarah Palin as her running mate.

Personally...I think Hillary is too polarizing to be viable. Much like Mrs. Palin.
IF a candidate has 2 groups, love and hate...then I think they are missing a huge portion of the middle of the road voters.
Whether or not she is considering this or not..I'm not sure.
I do NOT think Obama will seek a second term, but I guess we will wait and see. I seriously think he's a one term president and that he...and the democrats know it. He would not get re-elected anyways. Too many hate him. I think re-running Obama is a waste and would be handing the election to Republicans. Though...a Republican president in 2012 is pretty much a given at this point anyways. That's the way the pendulum swings.
Would I vote for Hillary? Most likely. It would depend on who else is running really.

"I do NOT think Obama will seek a second term"


On a related theme, anyone know when a sitting president capable of running for a second term declined to run? I don't know if he will or won't, but I think the dynamics of the situation

I can't say I absolutely wouldn't vote for her under any circumstances ... the other candidate would have to be pretty bad though. It's not that she's not competent, and she might be good at the job she has now. I think she's too willing to do what is expedient and maximizes her power rather than what is right for the long term.

Lyndon Johnson did not run for a second full term.

I don't know about that. I think he will run. Whether he can win or not is questionable.

There may be alot of people like me... I couldn't stand Hillary at first, but over the past few years I think she's matured and come into her own.


I might possibly vote for her.
