This is the trial balloon for Hillary.

Here we go.  Remember I said Barry wasn't going to make the Dem nomination next year?  Here's the setup.

The most popular national political figure in America today is one who was rejected by her own party three years ago: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Nearly two-thirds of Americans hold a favorable view of her and one-third are suffering a form of buyer's remorse, saying the U.S. would be better off now if she had become president in 2008 instead of Barack Obama.

The finding in the latest Bloomberg National Poll shows a higher level of wishful thinking about a Hillary Clinton presidency than when a similar question was asked in July 2010. Then, a quarter of Americans held such a view.

"Looking back, I wonder if she would have been a stronger leader, knowing the games and the politics and all that goes on," said Susan Dunlop, 50, a homemaker in New Port Richey, Florida. "I don't think she would have bent as much."

I've been noticing a lot of anti-Obama chatter on the MSM lately.  You don't normally see that kind of lipping off to a DemocRat prezzy, they save it for the Republicans.  So the shine has worn off, and now some of the other Great Powers in the 'Rat Party are going to buck the Chicago Machine and try to get their own horse to run.

IMHO, not being an expert or anything, we are going to start seeing a lot of these manufactured polls in favor of Hillary.  Possibly some more candiates will pop up as the deadline for the Dem nominations approaches.  Could be this is the trial ballon that launches the avalanche. Or not. 

But we shall see.

The Phantom

P.S. Even Hillary the grifter would be less of a disaster than Barry.  He's not even a thief, he's a saboteur.  Our one bit of good fortune is that he's an inept saboteur.

If the JournoList crowd can spin Obama as a Bush clone with Nixonian paranoia, they can force him out of primary contention. This would minimize the damage Obama could do to the Democrats later.

As for Hillary being better, remember that most of the Obama cabinet were once in Bubba's cabinet. There's just no dot-com boom to ride on now.

In some ways, Hillary might be worse.

Obama is too inept for subtle or slow - that's part of the reason all of this is blowing up in his face. He's not too far left for the Democrats - he's just not careful enough. (I wonder - would we have had the Tea Party movement if Hillary had won in 2008?)

Obama has inadvertently caused a rebound to center-right politics for a significant portion of the American public (mostly independents).
