From today’s Times Union/Siena College poll of registered voters nationwide, the meaningless-but-fun revelation that under certain circumstances, Barack Obama would be more of a boon to Hillary Clinton’s presidential prospects than Bill Clinton would:
If Hillary Clinton were chosen as the Democratic candidate for President in 2008, would you be more likely or less likely to vote for her if Barack Obama were her vice-presidential running-mate?
31 percent – more likely
26 percent – less likely
33 percent – no difference
10 percent – don’t know/no opinion
If Hillary Clinton were elected president, then former President Bill Clinton would return to the White House as the “first spouse.” Does that make you more or less likely to support her?
28 percent – more likely
31 percent – less likely
38 percent – no effect
3 percent – don’t know, no opinion
