Re: WOW! Hillary running for President!

'I'M GOING TO GO FOR THIS'
HILLARY IS JUMPING INTO RACE FOR PREZ
By IAN BISHOP and MAGGIE HABERMAN
CAT'S OUT OF THE BAG: Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton yesterday let a New York lawmaker in on her not-so-secret plan to run for president.December 5, 2006 -- WASHINGTON - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton yesterday answered the question on everyone's mind - telling one New York lawmaker flat out: "I'm really going to go for this."

Clinton dropped the much-anticipated presidential bombshell during a blitz of phone calls to home-state lawmakers, as well as a top moneyman, Attorney General-elect Andrew Cuomo, and the Rev. Al Sharpton.

"She said to me, 'I'm really going to go for this. I'm going to make this effort,' " the New York lawmaker told The Post.

"She never said she was running for the presidency of the United States or if she was going to announce - or anything like that," the lawmaker said, quickly adding, "It wasn't a question that needed to be asked. It was an obvious conversation."

The news came as The Des Moines Register reported that Clinton has started reaching out to Democrats in Iowa, a critical presidential testing ground.

Clinton's aides have insisted she is considering running and seeking advice but has not yet made a final decision.

Another New York lawmaker said that during the course of their conversation, Clinton revealed she felt pressure to formally jump into the 2008 White House race sooner rather than later because other candidates are becoming increasingly active.

Clinton disagreed with that lawmaker's assessment that the former first lady could announce her candidacy at any time she thought was appropriate.

She responded by "subtly disputing the notion that she could wait as long as she wanted," the lawmaker said.

Queens Rep. Joe Crowley also said he spoke with Clinton yesterday and came away all but certain she's in the race.

"She just let me know that what I'd been hearing is true and that she wanted my support and help in anyway that I possibly could," Crowley told The Post.

"It was a very exciting and exhilarating conversation. I don't know how often it happens in a lifetime when someone calls you up and says, 'I want you to know I'm doing this and I want your support,' " he added.

In addition to Crowley, Clinton spoke to Westchester Democrat Nita Lowey and several other members of the state's congressional delegation.

Sharpton said Clinton phoned him yesterday, too.

Clinton reached out to one of her biggest donors, Gristedes supermarket mogul John Catsimatidis.

"She wants to get together before the holidays," Catsimatidis said.

The Des Moines Register reported that Clinton spoke yesterday with Iowa Democrat Bonnie Campbell, a former state attorney general who said, "She is looking at the possibility of running for president and is looking for a read on Iowa."

Two Iowa polls in the last year have shown Clinton struggling there.

Meanwhile, Team Clinton moved to stockpile Democratic talent, hiring a national fund-raising director, a key operative and a senior campaign spokesman.

Phil Singer, a veteran of Sen. John Kerry's 2004 presidential campaign who most recently was spokesman for Sen. Charles Schumer's Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, will join the Clinton communications team.

"I'm going to do everything I can to help her if she decides to run," Singer said. "Hopefully, she'll make a decision soon."

Democratic fund-raiser Jonathan Mantz has signed on as fund-raising director, and Karen Hicks, a veteran field organizer who served as New Hampshire director for Howard Dean's 2004 campaign, will be Clinton's national field director.

I'm not sure how I feel about this. Especially because she's not very well liked in the country and I'm not positive about her chances for election...so her running (if true) in 08 could hinder the chances of someone who has a chance.

I was hoping Obama would run. Chat Icon

Re: WOW! Hillary running for President!

i dont know about anyone else but if this woman had any smarts, she would divorce her husband and change her name back to Rodham.

Whenever I hear "Clinton" i think of Bill.
I think Hillary needs to break away from that man before she thinks she can have a chance.

Either way I could care less, b/c Guiliani will now have an even better shot at winning Chat Icon

He is still talking about running - anyone can announce they are running for president - just because one person says she is running doesn't mean someone else can'tChat Icon

I think either one of them would be a great president - however I think if either one of them won in the primaries they would not win a national election... there are still so many people out there who would never vote for a minority for president, no matter how qualified they are.

Oh yes, this is true. But she's such a "presence"...not both can run for President since one has to win the party.

I'm thinking this isn't good for Obama.

And you're right about the fact that there are people who would never vote for a minority president. Hopefully, this will change with time.

As ridiculous as it is. It's a shame that "woman" equals minority.

Think this country will elect a woman president? Not sure if the men of this country are ready for that.

I would hope so.

This is one of the few countries who hasn't.

Margaret Thatcher was one of England's best PM's.

I actually think that in the eyes of the majority of this countyr, she is respected for standing by her husband even though he was a horrible husband. Many people in the US do not believe in divorce, and many people who live outside of major metropolitan areas hold her in a higher regard as a woman for staying with him. Does that make her a good candidate for us though...that remains to be seen.

What bothers me is that people all over the country will judge Guiliani solely by how he handled 9/11, and although he did an extraordinary job in the most difficult of times, his entire tenure was not as great, nor was his life before he became mayor.

This may sound stupid, but I really feel like the world would be a better place if women ran it.

I don't know anything about politics, but good for her. I hope she wins!!

If they are ready for a woman, I don't think it will be Hillary Rodham Clinton. There are too many people that don't like her. Add that to the fact she is a woman and I would say her chances of winning are slim to none.

I agree with her chances not being good. That's why I posted almost the same sentiment.

I agree. Many successful governments have been run by women.
