More Hillary

Even though she hates GTA, I'm still a fan of Hillary's but I'm not sure the rest of the liberal blogosphere is since I haven't seen this poll posted anywhere.
    HARTFORD, Conn. -- New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton would run neck-and-neck with two top Republican candidates in a race for president, according to a poll released Thursday.

    Forty-four percent of the voters surveyed in the Quinnipiac University Poll said they would support former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani over Clinton, while 43 percent chose the former first lady.

    A race between Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Clinton was also a statistical dead heat, with 43 percent favoring McCain and 41 percent supporting Clinton.

    Clinton received the support of 48 percent of women surveyed in both potential races.

    "It's still three years until New Hampshire and very speculative, but Hillary Clinton is showing she could go 15 rounds against either of two Republican heavyweights, Rudolph Giuliani or John McCain," said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

    Qunnipiac's telephone poll of 1,534 registered voters across the county was conducted March 2-7. It has a sampling error margin of about 2.5 percentage points.
While this may be good news for Dems (depending on your point of view) it must be said that Hillary will have to up her share of the female vote to include some Republicans and Independents if she hopes to win. No offense to my own gender, but a lot of men are still pig-headed enough to think a woman shouldn't run for President.
