Will Sen. Clinton Win the Democratic Nomination?
We've reached another milestone in the presidential campaign --- we're now one year out from Election Day. Tonight we want to know what you think about the Democratic frontrunner. Do you expect her to be the Democratic nominee? Or is still too soon to know? Share your thoughts via the comments link below. We'll also read some of your comments on tonight's program at 10pm ET.

I think we still have a ways to go before we decide who will be the nominee on either side. But if we go with all the hype in the press and on 360...yeah you all spin it too...then I think according to you all Hillary should be moving in the White House soon...and we haven't even had elections!! HMMM..go figure!?

I think its too soon to tell. She may win the primaries but if the stats hold that 50% of Americans won't vote for her I'm not sure she will get the party's nomination - the Democrats will want someone they feel like can win. So I guess it will depend on how well she can convince the party that she's able to win the election.

I think we all should wait until the nomination is final. Let's not count our chickens before they hatch. My crystal ball is just too hazy to see the future on this one. The nomination should be up for grabs at least until all the debates are over...The party is not over yet..

Hi Anderson, it is too soon to know at this point. And I don't want to jinx her, so I would prefer to say that whether or not she becomes the Democratic nominee, the best candidate will emerge.

Thanks,

P.S. Welcome back!

It's too soon, too much can happen, and too many variables are still unknown about candidates in both parties. I think the primaries will clear up some of the questions, but it's anybody's race for right now. There sadly is just no real "winner" who stands out from the rest of them.

Hillary would have to screw up in a big way to blow her current advantage over the rest of the field, which is unlikely.

I believe it is still too early. Polls can be great indicators but the popularity factor can shift like the wind. As a woman, Hillary's biggest challenge is to be seen as an individual and not as a "2 for 1" because she so happens to be married to a former President.

I don't think it's a foregone conclusion that Hillary wins the nom. We don't know what the issues will be by then. No one in early 2001 predicted 9-11 and how it dramatically changed the political landscape.

It's a long way until the New Hampshire primary, but as of today, there is no obstacle in her way.

Hillary will be the nominee. Why? Liberal women will have to get past some her more moderate positions (such as Iraq), but let's keep in mind - she is the first female Presidential forerunner in history and that's very exciting to a lot of people.

I think it's a little soon to know. Hillary has all the other democrats running scared, If they weren't they wouldn't have throw so many questions at her the other night.

They was all hoping that Hillary would mess up.

Hillary Clinton epitomizes the current face of the Democratic party. But the jury is out on whether or not she can win the November election.

i certainly think hillary will win the nomination. america is thirsty for a change, and i think the hill is definitely the one to ''quench'' our thirst.

No one on the Democratic side has the star power or the money that Hillary has. But the battle AFTER the nomination will be the tough one.
Posted By Audrey, Durham, NC : 10:40 PM ET
There's no two ways about it, Hillary is going to get the nomination and win the presidency. I say "buy one get one free!"

She will be the democratic nominee and the next President of the United States. And that day can not come soon enough.
Posted By Jason in Nashville : 10:41 PM ET
Yes! I'm not only excited about Hillary as the democratic nominee, but as the next President of this great country!
Posted By Kim : 10:42 PM ET
Let’s hope not, but if things stay the way there are I guess it’s inevitable. Guess being the First Lady qualifies as experience. People need to see the fact that there is a field of candidates that have way more experience and know how to run the country not look like it. I'll vote for almost any of the other democratic nominees, Richardson or Biden preferably, but if Hillary Clinton wins the nomination, guess its time for me to vote republican.
Posted By Daniel M. : 10:42 PM ET
I really hope it's Hillary, Biden, or Obama. In that order. All of my student peers, family, and close friends feel the same way as well. Domestic issues are key for us. We want our country back!!
Posted By Nigel : 10:42 PM ET
Without a doubt Hillary Clinton will win the nomination. Her entire campaign is too planed and her words too contrived to lose the advantage in the polls she has now.
Posted By Anonymous : 10:42 PM ET
Whether men like it or not, the future is coming, she will be president.
Posted By Airieann : 10:43 PM ET
Hello Anderson, I personally and many of my colleagues don't believe Hillary Clinton is going to be a nominee, because she failed to be honest with American people. She is only best in playing political game not solving problem.
Posted By Anonymous : 10:43 PM ET
She will definitely win nomination , but will she be the president we need at this time of foreign relations crisis i doubt so from her votes on Iran, Palestinian issues and other votes in congress, please America think twice.
Posted By Hussen Adam : 10:44 PM ET
Hillary will win the nomination because she's the best candidate, and one year from tonight she'll win the election!
Posted By Samantha, Los Angeles, CA : 10:44 PM ET
I am unsure whether or not she will win . Clearly she has the celebrity appeal, but she lacks executive experience and I think people can see that. And she can't make up her mind about a lot of things - first shes' a Cubs fan , then she's a Yankees fan, then a Mets fan. . .
Posted By xtina - chicago IL : 10:44 PM ET
Too soon to predict,but so far she is the best candidate.
Posted By Kimberly : 10:44 PM ET
No. Hillary will not win because she is a part of the same political machinery that the American people are so desperately trying to leave behind with the Bush administration.
Posted By Anonymous : 10:44 PM ET
Hillary certainly should get the nomination. Her gender is irrelevant; she's simply the best candidate for the job. And with Bill standing by, how can she go wrong?
