But the Clintons's one-time nemesis Newt Gingrich has gone on record stating to NBC's Meet the Press that should the former First Lady, New York Senator, and Secretary of State make a bid for the White House she will dominate any Republican. Gingrich, who led the charge both against Hillary's health care bill in 1993 and for the impeachment of Bill Clinton later that decade, spoke highly of Hillary Clinton's qualifications and political advantages: "The Republican party is incapable of competing at that level. First of all, she's very formidable as a person. She's a very competent person. She's married to the most popular Democrat in the country; they both think it would be good for her to be president. It makes it virtually impossible to stop her for the nomination." Gingrich added that he still believe President Obama remains a mediocre President on the merits, but he was forced to admit that Obama remains a "relatively popular president." Tying Obama's popularity to that of the Clintons, Gingrich intimated that he was fearful that with Obama's backing, a Republican attempting to derail Hillary Clinton would be tantamount to "trying to win what will be truly the Super Bowl." Gingrich's breathless flogging of Hillary's potential candidacy, which predictably infuriated conservative right-wing bloggers, comes on the heels of a recent Washington Post poll which found that nearly sixty percent of Americans indicating that they would support Hillary in 2016 if she decides to throw her hat in the ring. Those eye-popping numbers point to a potential landslide victory for Hillary Clinton, one that could devastate Republicans nationwide as Hillary has the potential to carry down-ballot Democrats in congressional, state, and local races to victory as well on the coattails of her ever-increasing popularity. Having added Secretary of State to her long political portfolio and with no rival with Barack Obama's charisma on the horizon to stop her, Hillary is now more respected than ever and better positioned to win than she was in 2008. She has been touted as perhaps the most qualified and prepared potential Presidential candidate in modern US history. After being nearly decimated in the 2012 elections, saved only in the House by favoring redistricting in 2010, a Hillary run for the White House in 2016 is looking very scary indeed for what Hillary herself once famously termed "the vast right-wing conspiracy."
