‘Ready for Hillary’ supporters launch website

WASHINGTON (AFP) ― “Ready for Hillary” ― the name says it all.

Supporters of the former secretary of state are laying the groundwork for a possible 2016 White House bid, officially launching a website Tuesday that features photos of the would-be candidate and plenty of praise.

The site ― ― belongs to the Ready for Hillary super PAC (political action committee) which aims to raise funds and rally enthusiasm for the former first lady should she decide to run in 2016.

“America is Ready for Hillary and we need your help to ensure that when she is ready to take up this challenge, we are on the ground ready to help her,” reads the site when viewers click on the difficult to miss “Contribute” tab.

In addition to photos of Clinton, who lost the Democratic nomination for president to Barack Obama in a hard-fought 2008 primary, the site includes an array of accolades ― and not only from U.S. political figures.

“What makes Hillary, Hillary is strength, toughness (and a) very strong streak of principle. I just have an instinct that the best is yet to come,” former British prime minister Tony Blair is quoted as saying.

“Sex and the City” star Sarah Jessica Parker also weighs in: “She has so much to offer and is equipped to do it well, to be thoughtful, reasonable, strong, authoritative, empathetic.”
