Hillary Clinton beats Obama in job approval ratings

Washington, May. 4 : After finishing 100 days in the office, US Secretary of state Hilary Clinton has trumped President Barack Obama in job approval ratings.

A recent polls shows Clinton having an approval rating of 71 percent, while the the President has a 65 percent approval rating.

"She's acting like a statesman and diplomat and representing her President instead of herself. She hasn't gone off on her own as many predicted. It's been very rehabilitating for her image," said a prominent Democrat on the former presidential candidate.

The Daily News quotes experts as saying that her former president husband, Bill Clinton, has helped in revamping her image.

Hillary also has labored to smooth over lingering rifts from the campaign with Obama and his inner circle, most notably First Lady Michelle Obama.

Declaring a truce at Foggy Bottom in March, Obama joked about her refusal during the campaign to mention Clinton's name, calling her "the other candidate." With a grin, Obama said, "Let me thank Secretary Clinton - I love saying that!"

Former National Security Council member Elliott Abrams opines that Obama has absorbed much of the foreign policy flak that would have gone Clinton's way.

Obama has piled the diplomatic plate high for Clinton, tasking her with risky openings to Iran and Cuba, while getting North Korea to disarm, putting down the Taliban threat in Pakistan and bringing the Israelis and Palestinians back to negotiations.

Clinton said she would give priority to "acknowledging our own errors where we have made them, which will serve as an example to others to do the same."

"Clinton is using her political talents in the building. Morale is good. And she's playing well with others. Unlike former Pentagon chief Donald Rumsfeld, who was barely civil to Bush Secretaries of State Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice," said Abrams.

Even Republicans are lauding the new and improved Hilary Clinton.

"It's nice to see the relationship the two of you have built...and I'm very pleased with what you're doing," Senator George Voinovich told Clinton and Gates. (From the ANI)

Anonymous, you're an idiot.
Both Hillary and the President have strong approval ratings.
Go change your nappy...you're stinking up the joint.
(and while you're at it, change your pacifier or go suck on something else!)
ps....I hear Uncle Rush calling his lemmings.....so, go jump off the cliff!

pss.....you need a lesson in grammar and punctuation 101.
The pronoun "I" is capitalized....for starters.
That would help if you'd want to have some shred of credibility.
Also, telling the truth and getting your facts straight would go a LONG way!

CONGRATS, HILLARY! The Axelrod Chicago Machine and the bought Media Misogynist Frat Boys' Club ensured you were pushed off the primary stage where you fought (and won a la Gore) valiantly for what you deserved, but didn't get! Alas, Sen. Alice Palmer's l996 fate should not have set a precedent....

No deferential ring-kissing curtsies to well-oiled harem boys, no JayZ '100 reasons' pseudo-cool front, no protocol deficit, no middle-schooler "flip-offing" or "flip-flopping", no corporate misogynist coding, no narcissistic proclivities. No cluelessness. Just a desire for a life-long commitment to public service and the vulnerable--and pride in being a Team Player and a respected representative of your once glorious country! Not to mention a great example for girls growing up in this tough macho-hill-of-beans we live in.

Thank you, Hillary! You will always be a Leader through your resilience, smarts and compassion. You are simply the Best!

I agree, Clinton is doing excellent, Obama is movin along, What more can we expect given the severity of what's going on. Count our blessings, Americans need that anyways, in my opinion. We're at war and I can barely see any flags out. Are you all so into your lives to not have pride. Its a big friggin wake up call for all those who thought that America was untouchable, Well we are vulnerable and people better get thier heads out of thier ass.
