I've read from several sources now that speculate that if Obama loses more popularity some are considering Hillary Clinton to run. so as not to bore with links and cut and paste I'll keep it simple. They don't see Obama having enough time to recuperate considering the economic mess. While not blaming him they also do not see how they can remake him favorably in this area either. He's losing independents and as we all know they are the ones who swing elections. So why Hillary? Generally because she can run on Bill's economic austerity measures. Now it's not like Bill reduced services but let's face it - he did well in the balance the budget area. she won't need to be remade ... or reshaped. She can just run and many feel women would be way more accepting of her than they are of Palin or Bachmann in the independent voter area which is the area they need to gain traction in. As for my opinion - well if not Obama then absolutely I would favor Clinton as she was my choice before in 2008. She's a strong & tough women who would also help our country appear strong again. Has she ever appeared weak or feable in the public arena? Internationally i think she would have much more appeal than Sarah or Michelle. Economically she has been there and as far as working with congress and the senate well she has been there also. Obama could bow out at any time without losing face as he has his family to look after reason. He also could become their biggest fundraiser right now. Between him and Bill they could rake in tons of money. i am almost tempted to say the democrats would be stupid if they do not go this route. Opinions? I would favor her or Obama if the GOP maintains Congress. If the Democrats were to gain Congress I would say Romney but I would whisper it ... not quite say it strongly.
