Clinton's ace in the hole: Obama

Hillary Clinton will have a not-so-secret weapon in her quest for the White House: President Obama.

Obama’s approval ratings have been marching upward since the start of the year.

He retains immense popularity with the Democratic base, including vital groups such as young people, with whom Clinton has struggled. And experts also say that there is no one better positioned to unify the party behind the former secretary of State as her long and sometimes bitter struggle with primary rival Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) draws to a close.

If Obama could run for a third-term, “he’d be reelected in a walk,” said New York-based Democratic strategist Jonathan Rosen. “He can play a huge role in bringing the Democratic base and independents, together to unite behind her candidacy.”

That could be particularly important given evidence from the primary season that suggests Clinton has failed to thrill some parts of the Obama coalition, even while she has drawn strong support from other blocs. She has struggled mightily among younger voters, for example, even while beating Sanders by huge margins among African-American Democrats.

Good point.. I've seen that a lot that Obama would be elected for a 3rd term.. but Hillary is going to be the official nom now and he will campaign his heart out for her like she did for him. Guarans.

Thanks Boot!
