Quick: Name the most widely known Republican and Democrat in American politics right now.
If you said Chris Christie and Hillary Clinton, congratulations. You've just identified the two "front-runners" for their parties' presidential nominations in the 2016 election, according to a new CNN/ORC poll.
Republicans will make plenty of hay out of the tens of thousands of canceled insurance plans and technical problems with HealthCare.gov, the federal government website designed to allow Americans to sign up for new health care plans under the Affordable Care Act.
The problems with Obamacare have clearly opened the door for opponents to launch more attempts to undermine the 2010 law. House Speaker John Boehner's been quoted this week as saying "targeted strikes" would eventually defeat the health care overhaul, according to the National Review.
Here's a question for you: What's Hillary Clinton, the Democrat everyone has their eyes on for 2016, thinking right now? Are the growing frustrations with health care reform, Obama's signature accomplishment, going to have a negative impact on a potential campaign?

BuzzFeed reports that two well known former aides to Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton are "in talks" to lead the board of the most powerful Democratic super PAC in American politics, Priorities USA, and are prepared to announced their support for Hillary Clinton's likely run for president in the 2016 election.
Former Alaska Gov. and failed 2008 vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin was lobbed a softball on the set of the Today show when asked what she thought of the most popular member of her party, Republican Chris Christie, as a potential candidate for the White House in 2016.
Palin could barely utter anything positive.
And that's less a reflection on Christie than it is the Republican Party, and the Tea Party in particular.
