ALBANY, NY - It's official. A top adviser to New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton says the former first lady, of both the nation and Arkansas, has begun active consideration of a 2008 run for president. The senator has personally asked some fellow top New York Democrats for their support in the event she goes ahead with such a campaign.
Adviser Howard Wolfson says he did not know when Clinton might make a decision on whether to run.
The senator is coming off an easy re-election victory to the seat she has held since 2001. National polls show her as the front-runner for the 2008 Democratic nomination.
