Early supporters of Barack Obama in 2008 are embracing the prospects of a Hillary Clinton run in 2016.
Several House Democrats who endorsed Obama over Clinton in the 2008 primary said that all signs point to widespread Democratic support for a second presidential bid for the former secretary of State.
One of Obama’s earliest supporters, Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-Pa.), said that if Clinton chooses to run, she wouldl be the favorite.
“If Hillary were to enter the race, that she would be the prohibitive favorite [to win the nomination] … and I don’t think you’d find any Democrat that would see it differently at this point. Now there’s questions about whether she will enter the race. But that’s a separate question,” Fattah said in an interview.
