She has to file the paperwork by either October or November if she wishes to challenge Obama for the nomination. So she doesn't have much time left.
The Unions are already boycotting the convention, so she already has a base of blue dogs in the wings.
If Obama's approval rating keeps falling at the rate its going, there will be no point in him even running. If the Democrats want a real chance of
winning the election, she looks like she could be the only plausible option.
I predict there will be NO challenge from the Left -- they are still in "Status Quo Mode" -- that being Republican Light. Being slightly to the

is "whatever we don't like" from Republicans -- it is inconsistent and meaningless.
And since Obama has done NOTHING for Unions, nor does he respect Liberal or Progressive principles where it counts -- he will continue to get lower
approval ratings -- lower than Bush, even though his sins are mere echos of Bush's.
