It wouldn't be harder than cloning any of the mammals we already have... unless you mean without a mother or something
While I am for cloning humans, it is not as simple as cloning any of the mammals we already have. There is a lot of work and research to be done to successfully clone a human - one that will grow normal, healthy, and survive.
you can't just swap the nucleus of an egg cell?
If cloning becomes common, I think we should find ways of genetic modification to rule out hereditary disease while we're at it.
Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis or PGD is already in practice. This is not to be confused with the idea of designer babies.

Dr. Zavos' team did not employ PGD to screen the cloned cells as they feared doing so would further "traumatize" the delicate candidate specimens.
