With less a month to go before the primary on April 19th, Capital Region Democrats gathered last night in uptown Albany for a "Hillary for New York" organizing event.

Hillary Rodham Clinton is expected to make the announcement Sunday that's been anticipated for months.  New Yorkers now have a former Senator and former governor potentially in the field.

The former secretary of state and New York senator is about to undertake her second presidential bid, entering the race in a strong position to succeed President Barack Obama as the nominee of the Democratic Party.

A new presidential poll out today says Hillary Clinton is crushing Vice President Joe Biden, 65 percent to 10. She hasn’t declared that she’ll make a 2016 bid, and Biden has only hinted at it. Meanwhile, the poll shows no clear front-runners on the potential GOP ticket. Is this poll a predictor of things to come?

While the race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination continues today with contests in Wisconsin, Maryland, and Washington D.C., politicians and pundits are already looking ahead to the 2016 Democratic nomination.

Two names that have been mentioned as potential democratic candidates are New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and secretary of state and former New York U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton.
