For those that voted for Obama (like me)...

I'm not political at all, but I thought I would ask this. And no, I don't have any regrets about voting for him.

But do you think if given the choice of another Democrat, do you think Hillary Clinton would have been the better choice? She was my first choice, and had she not lost the primary, I would have voted for her. I'm curious if you think she would have been better or do you think Obama was the better choice?

  • Mrs.Clinton was my first choice as well. But Obama is great president. If she throws her hat into the race in 2012, I'd vote for her in a heartbeat.

  • Honestly, I think Hillary would have made an EXCELLENT president, but I really don't know which would have been better in the long run... Because I truly believe Obama does his best to make a difference, under very difficult circumstances. Would Hillary have gotten less opposition from the Party of No? Impossible to tell.... I'm sure either way, people would have bitched about SOMETHING.

  • According to the Obama Campaign team, Chris Mathews, etc~ Hillary ran a racist campaign against Obama. Do you agree? Do you think the Obama Campaign Team, a few at MSNBC made that up?
