“What Difference, At This Point, Does [A SuperPAC] Make?”

Fans of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have launched a super PAC on her behalf as speculation continues to swirl about her 2016 ambitions.
“Ready for Hillary” on Friday filed with the Federal Election Commission, following on the heels of another group called “HILLARYCLINTONSUPERPAC.”

Hillary is sooo (not) not running.

    She can run but she can’t win.

    I want to think that, but then I thought that #OccupyResoluteDesk was out-ski, too.

    She missed her moment. She ran for Senate in 2000 instead of president, at the time a logical decision; she chose not to challenge a reasonably popular sitting Republican in 2004, again a logical choice at the time. By 2008 she was ready but the Democrats’ primary constituency went for the shiny new toy instead.

    Now she’s stuck in that middle territory between “old news” and “nostalgic classic worth millions if still in the original packaging.” Except of course that she is most definitely not still in the original packaging.

    But as a Mark 1 Mod 0 narcissist, how can she not run?

    Campaigning is very grueling. I wonder just how bad her physical problems are? A commenter on another blog said that she had ministrokes. I thought she was hospitalized for a blood clot? I’m sure Slick Willie wants her to run; maybe more than she wants to.

    It would be good if she ran, because we need some variety.

    Hillary’s one strong point – the one thing she has always been really, really good at – is holding a grudge. Wonder how many of her hubbies former allies, the ones who deserted her for Obama, are buying silk carpets to crawl on their bellies for her forgiveness?
