US Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-NY, pictured November 2006, on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. Hillary Clinton, the wife of former president Bill Clinton, has begun meeting with top party officials, hoping to garner their support for a likely run for the White House in 2008, a report said.
Drudge is reporting: She IS
Democratic jockeying for the White House in 2008 intensified on Sunday with Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh taking the first official step toward a run and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton gauging support among fellow New York lawmakers.
Clinton, who easily won re-election to a second term on Nov. 7, “is reaching out to her colleagues in the New York delegation and asking for their advice and counsel and their support if she decides to make a run,” a top adviser, Howard Wolfson, told The Associated Press.
He noted that Clinton had said she would begin actively considering a run after the election. “That process has begun,” Wolfson said. He said he did not know when she might make a decision or set up an exploratory committee.
Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack already is in the race and Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois is among numerous other potential rivals who are expected to decide within a few weeks whether to run.
Of course, she is in the race.
Flap wonders how long it will take for the “POLITICS OF PERSONAL DESTRUCTION” to begin against the other candidates, particularly Barack Obama.
Watch for the leaks……..
