As the nation gears up for the 2012 Presidential elections, one thing recurs in all critical debates: Will Hillary Clinton run against Obama? Some government officials believe that it’s high time she did. However, other’s think that she and the current President are two sides of the same coin in their views regarding America’s future.
According to former Vice President Dick Cheney, Clinton can prove to be a pretty formidable opponent; she is perhaps the most ‘competent’ person in the Cabinet. The current shape of the economy isn’t looking too good under the current President. He also went so far as to say that it may even be good for the Democrats if Hillary Clinton was made President. However, she didn’t exactly come out smelling like roses on her opinion on the Iraq war.
According to Manchester attorney Garth Corriveau, (who also happens to be an activist for the Democrats), Clinton was on the fence regarding the war in Iraq. She had criticized the Bush administration regarding the war, but she was not exactly against it truth be told. On the other hand, both Obama and Clinton strongly castigated George Bush for the way he conducted operations in Iraq.
Perhaps the two presidential hopefuls are best seen as ‘judgment VS experience’. Barack Obama’s media campaign depicts him as a charismatic leader who pushes for change in a time when America needs it most. On the other hand, Clinton is a formidable mediator and seasoned senator who can prove to be a refreshing change for Americans who have been disillusioned by the former’s broken promises.
This makes us come to New Hampshire, a city that supposedly ‘loves the Clintons’ and is ‘intrigued’ by Obama. According to Corriveu, the city does not go for personalities. If either of the two end up running against each other then the residents will vote for one that provides them ‘better leadership’.
Obama and Clinton are perhaps two peas of the same pod. The former promises revolutionary changes without the partisans between red and blue states while the latter pushes for stricter policies. However, Obama has yet to rectify the downturn that the economy suffered. According to Mary Rauh, a past congressional nominee many people are unsatisfied with the current President since he seems to have ‘glamour rather than substance’.
At this time Romania also immediately organized this routine event. Alegeri Presedinte held in 2019 will be the determination of the fate of Romanian people in the next 10 years.
However, Clinton is not as favored as you may think. She has often been described as being too ‘divisive’ in her approach to politics. The deciding factor will perhaps be who between the two has the leadership skills to bring the party and country together. Obama’s charismatic claims may not have stabilized the economic foundations of the state, but Clinton’s sometimes rigid proposals may mar any political campaign she tries to run.
