CNN released a poll today indicating that two thirds of those polled have a positive opinion of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. You can read about it here: http://bit.ly/fNy4Ds
While I have come to appreciate President Obama, I can’t help but feel a sense of loss when I read this. I was a Hillary Clinton supporter through the 2008 Democratic primary, and I was sad when she withdrew. I supported Barack Obama because she supported his run for president, and I think she’s working hard as Secretary of State.
CNN also reports that Clinton will not serve a second term as Secretary of State, nor does she want to run for President. I look forward to following Secretary of State Clinton’s work over the next 20 months and wherever her career takes her after that.
I do think that the citizens of the United States missed an opportunity in 2008. I know that many disagree, but that’s politics.
