While I would definitely vote for her, Hillary won't win. The influence/dominance of christian conservative men on their wives is too strong in this country for any woman candidate to have a snowball's chance in hell of being elected.

It's too bad because women outnumber men. We have the power to change things. I think things will change drastically in just 10 years down the road because conservative white males are a dying breed. I've heard that this country is only half white now. For better or worse, white men won't be controlling the system much longer. It won't matter what they want any more, or what they tell their wives to do.
Yes, I would vote for her. I wouldn't mind seeing the Clintons back in office. I would like to see an Obama/Clinton ticket. I think we'll have some strong democratic candidates this time . . . finally. I like Edwards as well.
I don't know if I'd vote for her at this point. I'm not to certain what she stand for anymore.

As far as the Clintons being back in office. They wouldn't be back in office. She would be in office. Bill would have no official standing or post. I don't like him being a co-office holder as a rationale for voting for Hillary. She's intelligent, accomplished in her own right and more than capable of holding that position. Putting the they qualifier on it diminishes her in my view.

Dick Morris is a bitter broken man. He had enough of his own problems that resulted in him being banished into political oblivion. I think he's the one who was found out to have veen getting serviced on more than one occasion in his office while discussing confidential information on the phone. He couldn't get arrested in this town for a while. So, I wouldn't really take what he has to say all that credibly. BTW -- Babs Bush and Nancy Reagan got away with some major crap in their day. I once read an article wherein the White House staff described B. Bush as Darth Vader in Keds.

So what if Hillary is "snobby?" Why shouldn't she be? She went to incredible schools. She worked on staff during the Watergate investigations. She was a partner in a law firm. She's a Senator. Her opinion and input are taken seriously by others in positions of authority. She also raised a good kid. She's accomplished more in her lifetime than most people can think about doing. So what if she's not "warm" or self-effacing? I often find "snobby" when applied to women such as Hillary to be code for being self-confident, not downplaying accomplishments and not pandering to those with fixed notions of how women should interact with others.

Given my druthers. I might seriously consider voting for Bill Richardson. He has a great resume. When I've read his interviews, he's thoughtful. He has experience governing.

I find the discussions about Obama & Clinton to be theoretical at best. America isn't as evolved yet as it likes to think it is. Of course, Richardson being Latino/Hispanic might put him in the same category.
I've already started calling Hillary, "Clinton 44".

Yes, I would vote for Hillary Clinton. I'm excited to see who the Democratic nominees will be.

I don't think pointing out that Hillary's husband knows the office and could be a positive contributor to her work diminishes her credibility or ability. I believe it can be a benefit (in terms of support) to have a spouse who has already navigated the office--and, in my opinion, quite well (minus the personal debacles).

ETA: I also think Hillary participated in Bill's term. They appear to respect each other's political opinions.
No. Absolutely not. Just don't like, and more importantly, don't trust her.

If he is running I will vote for him.
If she is running I will vote for her.

Edited to add: Yes, Bill Clinton would be involved. First Ladies have duties.
He will have an assignment. Possibly education, health care...
I do not like nor trust her. The lack of trust part is what would prevent me from voting for her. Right now Obama looks good to me. My personal "issue" with Hillary besides the sketchy Whitewater issues is how she handled Bill's sexual liasons in Tv interviews, etc. All the "that woman" references and basically defening him while tearing down the women (and it has certainly been more than one woman in his lifetime)... I just feel the two of them only work as a couple because they both put their political aspirations above all else - which leaves way too much slack in the area of integrity. If their marriage is a "show" - what isn't? I wish Ann Richards was alive today and running for president. I consider her opinionated, tough, and many other words that have been used to describe Hillary - but I would trust her to behave with a helluva lot more integrity.

It's one thing to say she would listen to her husband's opinion. Spouses listen to spouses and hopefully, respect their input. It's another thing to speak of them both being in office. First spouses don't get assignments. They pick issues to focus on. Laura Bush has a thing for education. She started the National Book Festival. That makes sense given her background. Saying he would have an assignment implies he would be acting in some official policy position. As much as I like Hillary, she should not have been put "in charge" of healthcare. She wasn't elected to a position and she wasn't put in by advice and consent. I thought her husband overstepped on that part.

I guess I should have said, "I hope he or she doesn't spend most of their time and tons of money redecorating the White House."
I can understand not voting for someone because you don't like their record on issues, their ideas, promises, or you don't trust them based on things they've said or done, but do you need to actually like them?

In most cases you won't meet them or develop any sort of personal relationship with them, so does it matter if you don't like them personally? Shouldn't it just be about their abilities?
If you can't be a Good Example, then you'll just have to be a Horrible Warning
I would vote for her without hesitation if she were the democratic candidate. I'm not sure if I would vote for her in the primary, I'd like to see who else is running. I don't care if she's "snobby" or "b1tchy" (like the born-with-a-silver-spoon-Bush family isn't snobby? please. ) - I'm not going to have sleepover parties with her, so whether or not she'd be fun to hang out with is immaterial. She's done a good job for my state. To be honest, I would prefer a more liberal candidate, but that's just me.

I would vote for a rabid raccoon before voting for Hillary.

My thought is this... for the past almost 20 years, we've had either a Bush or a Clinton in office.

I can see not voting for her because of her political issues...heck, I may not vote for her either. But because of how she handled her husband's affairs? Wow. But we are all entitled to our own opinions.
No, no, no, no, no, NEVER.

I don't agree with a lot of what she has to say.

I used to have a signature but it disappeared and I just couldn't be bothered writing another so please feel free to ingore this.
I am a liberal Republican & while I think ol' Hill's an intelligent woman I wouldn't vote for her. Obama, with his lack of experience, would get my vote.

I won't vote for a woman just because she's a woman, either. I would love to see either a minority OR a woman in office, but I will vote based on who I think will do the better job.
I feel we'd be lucky to have her.

She was originally a republican as was her family, but slowly changed her evil ways That's probably why she's moderate.
