A recent Washington Post/ABC News poll reflected something surprising and not-so-surprising involving former First Lady and Democrat Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton. First, the not-so-surprising news: the poll showed she was supported by 53% of the people surveyed. Not unusual, considering sheâ€™s been in the public eye for going on 15 years. What is surprising is that, according to the poll, she leads her fellow nominees in every major policy issue.
Breaking it down by issue is even more mystifying. Her approval rating on handling health care is 66%. This from a woman whose first attempt to reform health care was more secretive than a CIA reunion at an adult book store. (Provided, of course, Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame arenâ€™t on the guest list.) When it comes to voters who want strength and experience, people polled gave Hillary a 62% rating. Wait. Hillary has strength and experience being President? Considering who sheâ€™s married to, I might have to give that one to her.
