Time Takes on Hillary Clinton

The cover story for the latest issue of Time is dedicated to Hillary Clinton, and the piece discusses everything from the 64-year-old’s relentless work ethic to her many accomplishments.

In addition to the cover story, Time’s Managing Editor, Richard Stengel, sat down with Clinton for an interview in which she explains that there are no hard feelings toward Obama over losing the presidential nomination, and likens the Occupy Wall Street protesters to the Tea Party.

And to top all of that, there’s also a poll that shows Clinton would do better than Obama if she were up for re-election:

A national poll conducted for Time on Oct. 9 and 10 found that if Clinton were the Democratic nominee for President in 2012, she would best Mitt Romney 55% to 38%, Rick Perry 58% to 32% and Herman Cain 56% to 34% among likely voters in a general election. The same poll found that President Obama would edge Romney by just 46% to 43%, Perry by 50% to 38% and Cain by 49% to 37% among likely voters.

Sure that’s probably the “grass is greener” affect, but it’s interesting nonetheless.
