– Poll: Clinton favored in 2016 in Iowa (UPI, Nov 9, 2012):
WASHINGTON, Nov. 9 (UPI) — Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would be a big favorite in the 2016 Iowa Democratic caucuses if she runs for president, a poll indicated.
Clinton would capture 58 percent of the Iowa vote in a hypothetical run, results of the Politico-Public Policy Polling released Thursday indicated.
Clinton, 65, has said she would not remain as the country’s top diplomat during President Obama’s second term and has denied any interest in seeking the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination again. She ran against Obama during the 2008 party primaries.
The poll indicated Vice President Joe Biden was well behind Clinton at 17 percent, followed by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo at 6 percent and Massachusetts Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren at 3 percent.

“Thank you very much, Richard, and I am delighted to be here in these new headquarters. I have been often to, I guess, the mother ship in New York City, but it’s good to have an outpost of the Council right here down the street from the State Department. We get a lot of advice from the Council, so this will mean I won’t have as far to go to be told what we should be doing and how we should think about the future.”
