Ready for Hillary, the super-PAC pushing for Hillary Clinton to run for president, raised $4 million in 2013, a group spokesman tells The Hill.


The organization, which self-imposes a $25,000 maximum contribution limit, brought in more than $2.7 million in the final six months of the year from more than 33,000 individual donors.


"Thanks to the groundswell of enthusiasm for Hillary's potential run and the steadfast commitment of our supporters, we have exceeded our goals and are ahead of schedule in raising the funds necessary to build a grassroots army that can be activated the moment Hillary makes a decision," Ready for Hillary Executive Director Adam Parkhomenko says in a statement.


"This movement is unprecedented — not because of our staff but because of our supporters — and we will continue to build capacity across the country to put Hillary in the strongest position possible should she decide to run."

Robert Gates' Indictment of Obama's White House

A Haunting Memoir for Hillary Clinton in 2016


And speaking of Hillary Clinton – Gates’ memoir might cause an early headache for the would-be presidential campaign of the former secretary of state. Republican—and maybe some Democratic – opposition researchers will be taking note of a conversation between Clinton and Obama recounted by Gates.


“Hillary told the president that her opposition to the [2007] surge in Iraq had been political because she was facing him in the Iowa primary,” Gates writes. “The president conceded vaguely that opposition to the Iraq surge had been political. To hear the two of them making these admissions, and in front of me, was as surprising as it was dismaying.”


As Chris Cillizza of The Washington Post observed, “Gates's version of why Clinton opposed the surge fits perfectly into this existing good-politics-makes-good-policy narrative about the former secretary of state. And that's what makes it dangerous for her – and why you can be sure she (or her people) will (and must) dispute Gates's recollection quickly and definitively.”






Remember when Arthur Vandenberg (R-MI) politics stops at the waters edge?
