In December, Yahoo! Answers reached 96% of the Q&A site market share, according to Hitwise. While the real power of the community lies with the sheer number of people on the site – 17.9 million users, says comScore – it’s also exciting that those ranks include celebrities, noted experts, and even world leaders.

Recently, Indian President Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam asked the Answers community for thoughts on creating a safer place for everyone to live, one of the many leaders who have already asked, and answered questions within the Yahoo! community. And now, with the 2008 US Presidential campaign beginning to heat up, potential candidates are eager to listen to online communities and teach them about their platforms. Regardless of party affiliation, the Web represents a very active and engaged public and a potent way to reach out to people.

Today, Hillary Clinton, — who just announced she’s formed a commission to explore joining the 2008 presidential race, — returns to Yahoo! Answers to ask the community, “Based on your own family’s experience, what do you think we should do to improve health care in America?”

As the race heats up, we hope additional candidates will look to Yahoo! Answers as a way to gauge what’s on the minds of Americans. Answers is an open exchange of information, knowledge and ideas, and is a non-partisan community forum.

Please go to Yahoo! Answers to respond to Hillary Clinton’s question. You can also continue the discussion over on the Yahoo! Answers blog.
