When I decided to post links to articles relating to Hillary Clinton running for POTUS, I had no idea I would be updating every couple of days. It is not that they are coming on fast and furious. It is that collecting and holding onto several of them for days, or a week (I originally thought this would be a weekly feature) deprives readers unnecessarily of the latest information on the subject.
Here are more. If I see additional ones today, I will add them to this post. This one is actually from April, but it is circulating in the news feeds today.
The possibility of a last-minute presidential dash by Hillary Clinton has been raised after it emerged that her popularity among voters has almost reached an all-time high.
The Secretary of State’s favourable rating among Americans has soared to 66 per cent from just 61 per cent in July 2010.
This is from today. I have no idea who the real sources are for this, I am simply sharing and you can draw your own conclusions.

WASHINGTON, DC – Sources close to Hillary Clinton say she will announce her run for President in 2012.
…WWN has learned that in recent weeks, Bill Clinton, has been meeting with democratic operatives in Washington and grass roots leaders early primary states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. Bill thinks this time around, Hillary can easily wrestle the nomination from a weakened Barack Obama.
That is what some of us have been speculating for months.
Republicans and Tea Party Patriots are… very worried. VERY worried.
We have a resident mole who snoops and spies on the Republican and right wing blogs and radio shows. This is what Jen has been telling me for months! That the Republicans are terrified that she will run.
One Keatsian comment, I have loved that picture of Hillary from the first moment I laid eyes on it and used it as my avatar for a long time. I support her because she is strong, smart, and right, but could she BE any cuter?
Finally, here is a follow-up from Matthew Dickinson.
Categories: Uncategorized The reaction to my last post, (cross listed here at Salon) was a replay of the 2008 primary Democratic primary battle; closely fought, with passions running deep on both sides. Strong cases were made both for and against my argument, made in the guise of a generic Democrat, that Hillary Clinton should challenge President Obama in 2012. Boiling down the comments to their essence, supporters of a Clinton run make two essential points: First, Obama is in electoral trouble, and Clinton will likely run stronger in the general election, particularly among independents. Second, Obama has had his shot, and the results just haven’t been good.
