Like the Bride of Dracula, she rises from her coffin. An article from TheHill.com reports: “A group of Hillary Clinton supporters is launching a campaign to draft her to run for president — the first major push from an outside group for her to run. The group, Ready for Hillary, filed as a super-PAC with the Federal Election Commission late last week and plans to roll out a website in the coming weeks. It has already been active online, with nearly 50,000 Twitter followers and almost 30,000 people following the group on Facebook.”
“The effort is being spearheaded by Allida Black and Judy Beck, two longtime Clinton supporters who were on Clinton’s Virginia Women’s Steering Committee in 2008 and helped her raise more than $100,000. The two also were behind Women Count, a political action committee that ran ads pushing back against calls for Clinton to drop out early from the 2008 presidential race.”
“Black told The Hill that about a dozen veterans of the 2008 Clinton campaign were involved with the new group, though they were mostly volunteers, fundraisers and committee delegates, rather than part of Clinton’s internal circle. The group’s Facebook page, however, says a ‘former aide’ and ‘former adviser’ to Clinton are both involved in the efforts.”
“’It’s a draft movement. We want her to run, but we are not rookie volunteers,’ Black told The Hill on Monday. ‘This is not our first campaign. We know how to raise money. Most of us who are involved have done fundraisers before. I certainly have had fundraisers for her at my house in Virginia. We’re there to mobilize support for her in a variety of forms, both financial and grassroots. We’re getting ready so that when she’s ready, we’ve got the resources to help her do it.’ She declined to say who else, specifically, was involved in the organization.”
“Black said that the fireworks will begin with the rollout of pro-Clinton website sometime in the next week or two, after she officially finishes her duties at the State Department. Black said she hasn’t seen Clinton in a year or so and doubted the secretary of State has yet heard about the efforts.”
Somehow I doubt if a new website will make up for a lifetime of corruption, an embarrassing marriage to a hound dog, that any self-respecting woman would have divorced, and an unspectacular career as Secretary of State capped off with the Benghazi disaster and the deaths of four Americans.
The article goes on “Clinton is currently enjoying sky-high popularity ratings with both the Democratic base and the broader electorate, and has a long-established national network of volunteers and donors. Should she run, Clinton would have no trouble assembling a strong team to back her, and some Democrats believe she might be able to clear the 2016 field.”
Who the heck are these people interviewing for these polls? Militant lesbians over the age of 60?
Hillary was NEVER very popular except in ultra-liberal strongholds like New York. Her biggest claim to fame is being the spurned wife of Bill Clinton. Hillary has no more right to be president than Monica Lewinsky.
Add to all that, the fact that Hillary looks spent. She looks much older than her 65 years. She could easily pass for 80, who knows if she won’t die of exhaustion by 2016. Taking the blame for Benghazi (which was really Obama’s failure) must have added five to ten years to her already advanced age.
If the Dems want to roll out Hillary’s mummified corpse for a presidential election in 2016, they can try. After all, they were able to run Obama without proving his citizenship –twice; they can probably run Hillary in 2016 without having to prove if she’s still alive.
