(SOUNDBITE) (English) JELONDA FOSTER SAYING: "I think she's an awesome woman with experience. She has that 'it' that's going to make the difference. She's going to drive it home." (SOUNDBITE) (English) MORELES FIGUEROA SAYING: "I think so. She's worked very hard to get to where she's at. And, I believe there should be a woman president. It's time already... But others said her window of opportunity may already be closed. (SOUNDBITE) (English) DAVID WRAY SAYING: "I think in today's turmoil I'm not sure that she would be the right person to lead us." (SOUNDBITE) (English) GUS SAYING: "Being a good president? Only time will tell, you know, just like with everyone else."

(SOUNDBITE) (English) JAMES LUTER SAYING: "...she's been in politics a very long time, so yeah, I think she'd make a good president, yes." (SOUNDBITE) (English) SARAH LUTER SAYING: "And maybe we need a woman. . . maybe." According to a Reuters-Ipsos tracking poll, Clinton is supported by more than 60 percent of Democrats.
