Should Hillary Clinton run for president in 2004?I don't believe a woman should be president. In the one week I have PMS, I make very irrational decisions. Having said that, I do think Hillary would do a good job. She has strong views and she pushes hard for the things she believes in.

Should Bill Clinton run for mayor of New York City? No. I think he's had his moment in the lineup. I was going to say spotlight, but I think lineup's more accurate. It's time for Bill Clinton to hibernate. He should leave on a high note, just like Seinfeld.

Who's your favorite politician of all time? Ed Koch. I remember him just at the end of his term. It's a family thing to like Koch. My family admired him a great deal.

Should Hillary Clinton run for president in 2004? I don't know. We have to wait and see how she does in the Senate. I do think the country is more ready for a woman to be president than it is for an African American. It's sad, but true.

Should Bill Clinton run for mayor of New York City? No. That doesn't seem like a good idea. He caught too much flak for the "incident."

Who's your favorite politician of all time? Richard Nixon. He had a certain charisma. I liked his gestures, his manner, and the way he spoke. I'd also have to include Bill Clinton.

Should Hillary Clinton run for president in 2004? Yes and no. Yes because I believe her heart's in the right place and that she's trying to do something good for the poor. On the other hand, there's something about the way she speaks that suggests she's hiding something. It's like walking through tall grass and you're not sure which direction the snake is coming from.

Should Bill Clinton run for mayor of New York City? Yes. Clinton did a lot for the country.

Who's your favorite politician of all time? David Dinkins. He was compassionate, and gave everybody an equal opportunity.

Should Hillary Clinton run for president in 2004? Yes, and I'd vote for her. I think she can make her mark in the Senate and then run for president.

Should Bill Clinton run for mayor of New York City? Yes, I like him. He should run. People go on and on about the Clinton scandals, but Giuliani married his cousin and right now he has two wives. The police are protecting his girlfriend around the clock.

Who's your favorite politician of all time? Malcolm X. After he left Islam, he changed his views. He would have been a great national leader if they hadn't had him killed.

Should Hillary Clinton run for president in 2004? I think she should finish her Senate term, which ends in 2006. If she learned from her universal health care debacle and gets things done in Congress, she might have enough experience to run for president in a later election.

Should Bill Clinton run for mayor of New York City? Sure. Why not?

Who's your favorite politician of all time? It would have to be someone dead, because I am not inspired by anyone living now. I would say Dr. Martin Luther King.

Should Hillary Clinton run for president in 2004? No, and I wouldn't vote for her if she did. I don't trust her. I didn't vote in the last election. I was protesting. Still, I think George W. Bush will make an effective president. He'll get the military back into shape after eight years of neglect.

Should Bill Clinton run for mayor of New York City? I don't trust him either.

Who's your favorite politician of all time? I don't like any of them, but I would say Abraham Lincoln or George Washington.

Should Hillary Clinton run for president in 2004? I don't see why not. If she wants to, she should. I'm just not sure she'll have enough of a record after only four years in the Senate.

Should Bill Clinton run for mayor of New York City? It's a great idea. I'm all for it. Bring it on. He's been our best president, and he'd be much fairer than Giuliani has been.

Who's your favorite politician of all time? Gandhi. For sure.
