Is a war with Iran imminent under Hillary Clinton as president [View all]

Hillary has threatened to nuke Iran(and South Asia). And, she threatened to attack Iran many other times - as late as October 2015. She said if she were president we would go to war with Iran. Do you believe that if Hillary Clinton is president, a war with Iran is imminent?

"In 2008, she promised if elected president to “obliterate” Iran if it attacked Israel—even if the United States was unthreatened and Congress had not authorized war: “I want the Iranians to know, if I am the president, we will attack Iran... And I want them to understand that... we would be able to totally obliterate them [to retaliate for an attack on Israel].”
