It's three years away with no candidates, but that hasn't stopped the first member of Congress from endorsing a potential 2016 presidential campaign. Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., who backed President Obama over Hillary Clinton in 2008, announced her support Tuesday for Ready for Hillary, a super PAC that's working to get Clinton to run for president.
"Hillary Clinton had to give up her political operation while she was making us proud, representing us around the world as an incredible Secretary of State, and that's why Ready for Hillary is so critical," McCaskill said in a statement.
In an email to the PAC's supporters, McCaskill asked that 5,000 people donate $5 or more by June 30 to demonstrate that Clinton has "an army of supporters." The PAC's fundraising quarter ends on June 30 and its Federal Election Commission disclosure will be released next month. Displaying a significant financial haul is one indicator that the PAC may be coalescing support for a Clinton run.
"It's important that we start early, building a grassroots army from the ground up, and effectively using the tools of the Internet - all things that President Obama did so successfully - so that if Hillary does decide to run, we'll be ready to help her win," McCaskill continued.
After Clinton left the State Department, McCaskill had said she would be "on [Clinton's] team" and "working my heart out" if the former first lady ran for president. McCaskill joins several Clinton-era aides, including James Carville, in the Ready for Hillary effort.
What kind of dirt does Hillary have on her?
I’d pay five bucks to see Hillary run......off a pier.
I’d pay fifty bucks to see her strapped to a steam catapult and shot off an aircraft carrier. I could make some real moolah running bets on how far she’d go.
“And the winner in blueunicorn6 with his bet of ‘It won’t matter how far she goes because she’s gonna melt when she hits the water.’ That paid three million bucks.”
Hillary. This is the best and brightest the Rats have to offer.
One and only one commercial.
It is 3 am in Benghazi and you let 4 Americans die. How many more Americans will die because of your incompetence?
“The Ready For Hillary effort”? Buy your scalpels now ladies and gentlemen, because the price for them is gonna skyrocket when they start doing all those lobotomies.
Oh great, out of the frying pan into the fire.
“Building a grassroots army from the ground up” Wow! That’s the kind of endorsement you normally only find in a fifth grade Class Treasurer campaign.
Notice those ole stern looking and mean spirited women
are behind Hillary. It takes many -to make a Hillary village and it seems that her girlfriends are lining up already to do so.
I guess it’s over then eh?
In 2020 there may be a third party which is worth paying attention to, if elections are still held in this country.
The female Stalin!
