Hillary gets going

The Race For 2008.

Hillary is quickly making moves in the 2008 Presidential Election before Barack Obama gets ahead.

She’s been putting calls into Iowa and New Hampshire, two of the first states to vote in the Democrat primaries, and shoring up support from local leaders. Adding complication, Iowan Governor, Tom Vilsack, has already announced he intends to run, although he isn’t the current favourite in his home state.

Clinton has, apparently, been making new appointments to her team, indicating she is starting to crank up the effort on key states.

She’s running top in most of the polls, but still being beaten by potential Republican challengers like John McCain.

    Great post, thank you. I’ve written about a possible Bloomberg ‘08 candidacy on my blog at I think with his money and smarts—along with the country’s yearning for another alternative to the two party system, it might just work for him.

    Of course she’s going to be beaten by John McCain…

  3. One thing that worries me about Hilary Clinton in the Presidential race is that she seems to be in it because some of the Democrats think people might vote for her because they have heard of her as opposed to the possibility that she might make a good President.

    We’ve already seen in the UK what happens when you get a well packaged government that just wanted to be in power but had no idea about actually running the place. And in the US what happens when people vote for someone because they have a name that you recognise from somewhere….

    White House at any cost, anyone?
