Description

This is the first in a series of weekly features profiling the 2008 presidential hopefuls. Hillary Rodham Clinton is considered the clear front-runner to win the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008, but party insiders say questions about her “electability” are the biggest obstacle to her winning the White House primary. Clinton has kept mum about her ambitions since winning election to the Senate in 2000, sticking to the line that she is focusing on serving the people of New York and winning reelection in 2006. Though the last presidential election was decided only a few months ago, lawmakers and strategists have already begun focusing intently on “Hillary” as a likely future presidential candidate. Indeed, it’s a testament to her national name identification that she is often referred to by her supporters and opponents, as well as in news headlines, merely by her first name, a familiarity that few other American politicians, if any, have.
