A new ad pitching a Hillary Clinton 2012 presidential campaign has been making the rounds on the web and in select TV markets recently, but it doesn't mean there's an inter-cabinet coup brewing to prevent Obama from running for a second term.
"She has more experience working in and with the White House than most living presidents. She is one of the most admired women in our nation's history. Let's make sure the president we should have elected in 2008 will be on the ballot in 2012. Hillary 2012: Hillary Clinton for President. Start now. Where there's a Hill there's a way," the ad, paid for by Chicago dentist William DeJean, reads.
According to an interview with CNN, DeJean's decision to produce the ad seems to be driven by a simple dissatisfaction with Obama and support of Clinton.
"I'm a dentist and I don't think this country is headed in the right direction," DeJean explained. "I think [Clinton] is the most qualified."
More from CNN on DeJean's motivation:
DeJean adds that he thinks people are having buyer's remorse about President Barack Obama and says the current administration is ruining the Democratic Party. He says he spent $5,000 to create the commercial and tells CNN that besides New Orleans, the ad will run in Washington, New York and Los Angeles, and possible Houston. DeJean says he chose to first run the ad in New Orleans because he's a native of the city and because the city's in the news due to the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.
Clinton has said repeatedly that she has no plans to run for president again, much less as a primary challenger to Obama in 2012, but that hasn't stopped many from speculating that her sights remain on the top office, and that her aspirations can't wait until 2016.
