Mrs. President?

Buzz that Hillary Clinton may run for president in 2008 is nothing new. Perhaps more notable is that a majority of Americans might actually vote for her–as many as 53 percent of Americans according to a CNN/Gallup Poll. Support for the onetime First Lady breaks pretty starkly along age and gender lines, though: 60 percent of women versus 45 percent of men would back her, as would one out of three voters under 30, compared with fewer than half of those 50 and older. Mrs. Clinton aside, a striking–and surely encouraging–sign is that seven out of ten Americans told the pollsters they “would be likely to vote for an unspecified woman for president in 2008 if she were running.”
