Exactly half of voting-age Americans in a recent Harris Interactive poll indicate they would not vote for Hillary Clinton if she became the Democratic nominee for president in 2008.
The poll, which surveyed 2,223 potential voters, was released Tuesday. It revealed strong, negative opinions of the New York senator, who is viewed as a polarizing figure in American politics.
Nearly half of those polled said they don't like Clinton's political opinions and/or Clinton as a person. A majority - 52 percent - of those polled said "she does not appear to connect with people on a personal level."
Perhaps surprisingly, nearly half (45 percent) of the women polled would not vote for Clinton, while 56 percent of men said they would choose someone else instead. Self-proclaimed seniors (62 years
and older) also tilted against Clinton in the poll, with 69 percent showing their disapproval of her as a 2008 candidate.

Criticize the war in Iraq all you want to, it's your right. But when you mention "impeaching" the head of your own party as an option just because you disagree with his strategy, not only do you come off as a fool, but you're also a traitor:
GOP Sen. Chuck Hagel of Nebraska, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and a frequent critic of the war, stopped short of calling for Bush's impeachment. But he made clear that some lawmakers viewed that as an option should Bush choose to push ahead despite public sentiment against the war.Other's Blogging: PunditGuy, Politico Mafioso, Oklahoma Lefty
"Any president who says, I don't care, or I will not respond to what the people of this country are saying about Iraq or anything else, or I don't care what the Congress does, I am going to proceed � if a president really believes that, then there are � what I was pointing out, there are ways to deal with that," said Hagel, who is considering a 2008 presidential run.
The Senate planned to begin debate Monday on a war spending bill that would set a nonbinding goal of March 31, 2008, for the removal of combat troops.
That comes after the House narrowly passed a bill Friday that would pay for wars in Iraq and Afghanistan this year but would require that combat troops come home from Iraq before September 2008 � or earlier if the Iraqi government did not meet certain requirements.
On Sunday, Hagel said he was bothered by Bush's apparent disregard of congressional sentiment on Iraq, such as his decision to send additional troops. He said lawmakers now stood ready to stand up to the president when necessary.
