I wouldn't say she was worse than Obama. Heck she was even Republican at one time. She campaigned for Barry Goldwater in the 1960s. She only left the party in 1968 due to racism within it, something that still to this day eats at the Republican party.
She has been far more conservative than most democrats on foreign policy as a major supporter of the Global War on Terror, including the surge in Afghanistan, which VP Biden fought against. She has fought against the closure of military bases. She has also fought for veteran's benefits.
She is liberal on social issues, especially as a major supporter of women's rights in the Islamic world.
In my own view she is quite different than Obama, especially on foreign policy, the US military, and human rights.
Between Perry and Obama, I wouldn't vote for Obama. I don't care for Perry. Between Perry and Clinton though, I would be more inclined to support her based on her record in regards to the US military. Off the top of my head, I can't think of a more pro military Democrat. With me being in the military, that is a major factor in deciding my vote.

well people seem to be forgetting something of historical significance.
no sitting president has ever had a challenger from the same party
its like the unwritten rule democrats do eat their own and they do throw each other under the bus
but not when they got the whitehouse.
