She wasn’t good enough last time but now she’ll do…
Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill says she is supporting a super political action committee encouraging Hillary Rodham Clinton to run for president in 2016.
McCaskill is the first sitting member of Congress to endorse the group, called Ready for Hillary.
The Washington Post reports,
The organization does not have official ties to the former first lady, but it’s trying to lay the foundation for another Clinton campaign.
McCaskill, an early supporter of Barack Obama when he was running for president in 2008, said Clinton had to give up her political operation when she joined Obama’s Cabinet in 2009. “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,” the senator said.
The unusual declaration was not as much a presidential endorsement of Mrs. Clinton — she had expressed that support earlier this year – but an endorsement of a “super PAC” encouraging her to run. It was the first endorsement of the Ready for Hillary PAC by a sitting member of Congress, the group said.
Don’t forget Claire McCaskill still believes Missourians are too stupid to understand Obamacare and Hillary Clinton’s Fingerprints Are All Over Benghazi.
