Let's be honest, the Republicans were never going to favor Clinton. This controversy will probably blow over in the next few months, honestly, and with her announcement and campaign, I think that independent number is going to be on the upswing.

"The NBC/WSJ poll finds 44 percent have a positive impression of Clinton while 36 percent are negative. Those are nearly identical to her 45-37 positive margin in January, and well within the survey"s 3.1-point margin of sampling error.

It's important to note that interviews for the survey were conducted March 1-5, overlapping the New York Times story on March 2 revealing that Clinton used a personal e-mail account while secreatry of state, so it does not capture the repeated rounds of attention the story has drawn. Nor does it encompass any reaction from Clinton's news conference Tuesday. The poll was conducted well after The Washington Post's report on overseas donors to the Clinton Global Initiative."

That's the thing, though - her supposed benefit is she is much more palatable to Republicans and independents, especially southern ones. People insist she could win border south states like Arkansas, Kentucky, and West Virginia. If she can't, she has to hold the Obama coalition and sweep virtually all blue and purple states.

I don't think that you'll find her advantage to be the Republican crowd. At least, those in the center-right and more right, mostly, the Tea Party crowd. She'll have her advantage in being the most recognizable candidate, campaign efficiency, the women vote, and Republicans who are opposed to the Tea Party vehemently. I think she'll definitely be able to hold on to the Obama coalition.

As YYW's post indicates; still a lot of controversy.

I would say that Clinton scandals haven't hurt her before - Whitewater, Travelgate, Filegate, Monica Lewinsky, Benghazi - and I see no reason this will be any different.

That said, I'm not sure why conservative presidential hopefuls are trying to smear her candidacy... There are stronger Democratic candidates out there imho; Clinton running is the best chance a Republican has of winning.

If we're being honest with ourselves, the country wasn't ready for an African American president in 2008. Many thought we were. But after years and years of political fighting, race relations at their lowest point in decades, and witnessing the lack of respect given to this president, we must look ourselves in the mirror as a nation and admit we weren't ready. It's sad. It's hard to say. But it's the truth.

Do we believe electing a female president in 2016 will be any different? Will the political fighting be any less? Will the real women's issues move forward or be used as another political game. Domestic violence against women already looks to be on the rise. Will that violence get better or worse?

We need to take this time out in our nation"s politics to make this country a better place for all Americans. All men, all women, all races, all religions.

Sorry but 2016 is not the time in this great nation's history to be electing its first female president.

I don't know why all the liberals like her either, lol. If she is anything like her husband she's going to do a lot of conservative things. Although I don't like bill a lot, he did do a lot of good things (mostly just agreeing to what Newt was saying though): welfare reform, spending cuts, and wasn't Greenspan head of the Fed? Good times.

I don't know why but I'm a big fan of Jeb :p

There are many, many things wrong with this... I'll let someone with time to kill deconstruct this statement.

But isn't Jeb Bush's ideology radically away from his party's? I thought he personally was a liberal. If he wins, I hope he starts liberal policies [I'm a liberal, so I guess I'm biased]. But will the Republican-dominated Congress accept that? (Maybe over Clinton, I suppose :p)

No he's not liberal. He was one of the most conservative governors. He only differs on two issues: common core and amnesty.
