    Will Hillary make a run at the presidency in 2012? IMHO, Hillary is laying low on several of Obama's policies. She hasn't said a word of interest on Obama's healthcare reform, I haven't heard a word on Cap and Trade. I really do feel she is waiting to see if Obama continues to slide in the polls setting up a possible run. Here is one person's opinion:

    I fully expect Hill to tender her resignation just prior to the official start of the next Presidential campaigning season. If not sooner. I think Obama's plan in giving her the SoS position was to keep his enemy close and under some control. She has pretty much been rendered irrelevant and unseen since taking the job, and in many instances I've noticed others in the administration taking on a task that would have ordinarily fallen to the SOS. I think this may start to occur more frequently, essentially making her ineffective as well.

    Of course, I could be wrong.

    Wow.
    You just posted a link to some guy's blog??
    What, you don't have your own opinion??

    BTW, the whole scenario is ridiculous.
    The DNC would never let her run against Obama seeking re-election.

    that's where Hillary made her last big mistake, she should have said fuck the DNC and ran as an independent. She would probably be sitting in the White House this very day.

    Uh, folks, it doesn't work that way. The Democratic Party will nominate Obama. There's no competition involved unless Obama opts not to run for re-election. The only competition for the party nomination will be on the Republican side.

    HRC is not going to run against BHO if he wants renomination: not in 2012, not in any year.

    For starters, he has proved clearly that he had the machinery of the party in his corner. Secondly, if she even thought it, she and her supporters would lose the patronage of the federal government in their own states. BHO would give to someone else who supported him.

    Keep on dreaming Sarah.

    PRINCETON, NJ -- President Barack Obama's most recent weekly job approval rating is 52% for the seven-day period ending on Sunday, similar to the 54% reading from the previous week but down significantly from 59% a month ago. His average disapproval rating during the past week is 41%.
    Obama Weekly Approval Average Now 52%, a New Low


    Obama's monthly average of 52% in September thus far (through Sept. 23) is among the lowest Gallup has measured for elected presidents since World War II in September of their first year in office.
