She's still on the job as Secretary of State but new polls suggest that Americans would support Hillary Clinton if she runs for the White House in 2016. So far she has denied any plans to do so - but many Washington insiders are predicting she will. It started with an article in the New Yorker, which boldly declared "Hillary is Running." A new Washington Post-ABC News poll shows that 57% of all Americans would vote for her. Sixty-six percent of women and 49% of men polled said they would back her. It was a sentiment echoed by tourists visiting Washington D.C.. (SOUNDBITE) (English) Alexis Skinner-Turner, Tourist, Saying: "I think it's about time a woman took charge and ran the world the way it's supposed to. I don't think it's too early to tell. There's always speculation, but speculation is always a good thing." (SOUNDBITE) (English) Donna Seely, Nurse From Tennessee Saying: "She's earned and gained the trust of many other leaders in the world. The United States can no longer be in isolation. We have to participate in the entire world and I think she has an 'in' with many other - those leaders, which will benefit the citizens here in the United States." (SOUNDBITE) (English) Steve Emmons, Virginia Resident, Saying : "I think it's well time. I think we've now had our first African-American President, which is a big step, and I think now, sure, we need a woman. I mean, I've long thought that we need a lot more women in politics and in national roles as well as in corporations. They definitely bring a different take to things." (SOUNDBITE) (English) LOUIS EMMONS, VIRGINIA RESIDENT, SAYING : "I think she's got a lot of skill and a good experience doing the Secretary of State job as she's done, traveling probably more than any other Secretary of State has ever traveled. I think she's got a good foundation and I would like to see a strong, intelligent, informed and experienced woman run for president." Clinton lost to President Barack Obama in the 2008 Democratic primary, but has remained in the public eye as the United States' top diplomat. It's a position that has also given many a chance to see a different side of the famously serious Clinton. While she has given no public indications about another White House run, many will be watching her next step.
