If President Obama were to face a challenge in 2012, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is best poised to take him on, according to a new Washington Whispers poll.
Some 61 percent said Clinton, a 2008 primary challenger to Obama when she was a New York senator, could beat the president in a primary, according to Paul Bedard at U.S. News & World Report's Washington Whispers.
Clinton, who's very popular in her current role, has suggested that she doesn't plan to serve two four-year terms as secretary of state and also that she doesn't want to run for the presidency again. She is still trying to retire her 2008 campaign debt, reportedly at less than $1 million.
