Would Hillary Clinton have been a better president than Obama?

Hillary Rodham Clinton by Wikipedia

During the 2008 presidential campaign, most progressives probably judged that Hillary Clinton was more pro-war than Barack Obama.   Because of her association with her husband and with business interests, she seemed tainted by centrist corporatism.

On the other hand, she seemed more knowledgeable about health care and had had substantial national experience as first lady and in the US Senate.

Moreover, in view of President Obama's compromising and forgiving stance towards Republicans, and because of Hillary's first-hand experience of nasty dirty-tricks that Republicans had inflicted on her and her husband, it's reasonable to surmise that she would have been a more effective fighter for Democratic ideals.  Perhaps she would have prosecuted Bush-era officials for their many criminal acts.

Do you think Hillary Clinton would have made a better president than Barack Obama?

I may follow this poll with another one asking: would you vote for Hillary Clinton if she chooses to run for president in 2012?

Hillary probably would have done better than Obama.
Probably about the same.
Hillary probably would have done worse.
Not sure.
