Being among those who despise ambiguity, i would hate it if Clem wasn't in Season 2. The whole point of all the actions you have with her in season 1 is to teach her how to survive in this world, and that all goes down the drain if you never know if she ever uses anything you've ever taught her. Protecting her in season 1 would have been pointless, because teaching her anything was a waste since we never know if it helped her survive on her own.
There are plenty of situations(some may even say too many) where fates are left ambiguous that we can think over: Lilly(if you follow the Woodbury book), Molly, Kenny, Omid & Christa. All of these people can retain their unknown fates and that would be fine, but at least Clem needs to return, so we can see if everything we've done for her was worth it. Just as well, there are plenty of different scenarios for her to be involved other than just gaining another guardian.
It becomes quickly apparent that she's one of the main focus points in the game, and if the character of Clementine is thrown in the trash with the 1 minute cliffhanger at the end of season 1, then all the time we've spent with her in those first 5 episodes were a complete waste.
