Kathy Frankovic mines the Roper iPoll database and finds "2,377 public polling questions that include the name "Hillary Clinton" or "Hillary Rodham Clinton," and declares her "the most asked-about woman of all time."

Gary Langer mulls the "career low" job ratings posted recently by President Bush and concludes: "in terms of public opinion, this president's problems are all about Iraq; his approval rating and views of whether the war was worth fighting have correlated since April 2003 at a near-perfect .93."
