Six months after losing the presidential election, Hillary Clinton is ready to wade back into politics.
The former secretary of state is building a new political group to fund organizations working on the resistance to President Donald Trump’s agenda, spending recent weeks in Washington, New York City, and Chappaqua, N.Y., meeting with donors and potential groups to invest in, and recruiting individuals for the group’s board of directors, multiple people close to the two-time White House hopeful and people familiar with the group’s planning told POLITICO.
She is looking to launch the group, expected to be called Onward Together — a nod to her campaign slogan, Stronger Together — as soon as next week, they say. Clinton’s spokesman declined to comment for this story.
This is good news for progressives, and definitely bad news for the Trumpsters.
Hillary has proven herself as a fund raiser, and if she gets her husband involved there is really no limit to the money they can pull in to help fund candidates, ad campaigns, and activist organizations.
Somebody actually had the temerity to compare this to Sarah Palin's "all about me" PAC. As if because they are both women these two people would have ANYTHING in common.
This organization will have a board of directors, and trust me when I say that all of its actions will be aggressively scrutinized by the media, so the possibility that it would be some vanity operation designed to fill Hillary's pantsuit pockets with free cash is ridiculous on its face.
And remember Bernie Sanders and Barack and Michelle Obama are launching similar enterprises and nobody seems to have a problem with that.
