Change in the Wind?

The USA Today poll has a very interesting piece of information. It seems that 53% of Americans polled would likely vote for Madame Clinton if she elected to run in 2008.

For the first time, a majority of Americans say they are likely to vote for Hillary Rodham Clinton if she runs for president in 2008, according to a USA TODAY/CNN/Gallup Poll taken Friday through Sunday.

I have said all along that Clinton would be a formidable candidate and while she is not as progressive as I and her liberal credentials are a little shredded by political necessities I still think it might make sense.

I am quite sure the right wing crazies are going to go ballistic of this poll and shit a brick. And frankly, just watching them foam at the mouth would be worth it.

They, of course, will try and stick every dirty Repug trick on her and paint her as a hyper-liberal witch that eats babies. If you think Kerry got whacked and jerked around just watch what they try and do to Mrs. Bubba. Hillary has already survived a lot and after what she saw them do to Bill I think she might be just strong enough to take the bastards on. Granted she has moved to the center but I actually don't think anyone more left has much of a chance in America today to be President.

Who would the Repugs run against her? Condi to counter the female vote? It is interesting to speculate. Maybe a Clinton/Edwards ticket would have a better than average chance especially when you extrapolate the current situation with Iraq, Afghanistan, Social Security, enviromental policy and the assault on the constituion that is starting to bubble up in the average person's conciousness. Hillary's 53% is a lot better that bunnypants' approval right now and I really can't see what could improve his numbers all that much.

Most of all I miss the Big Dog and would sure like to see him back in the White House even if he is the First Gentleman.
