Skip to comments.A Clinton in ‘Transition’ Keeps Opponents and Donors Frozen
Posted on 03/31/2013 2:12:03 AM PDT by lbryce
Hillary Clinton left the State Department nearly two months ago, but she still needs a staff to keep up with the considerable business of being Hillary Clinton. A half-dozen people now work for the former secretary of state and Democratic presidential candidate in a tiny corporate space on Connecticut Avenue in Washington, in what is called her transition office. Hillary Clinton Looks Ahead
Transition to what, Mrs. Clinton and her aides have not yet said. But the question hovers over her every move and has frozen in place the very early but for some potential candidates, very important presidential maneuvering on the Democratic side.
Mrs. Clintons post-government life is so new that she is barely off her State Department health care plan. The Iowa caucuses are at least 33 months away. But that has not dissuaded a network of former campaign staff members and volunteers from starting a political action committee, Ready for Hillary, dedicated to what they hope will be her 2016 run.

I wonder who is paying for her staff?
The Bloody hands of Clinton. The most incompetent SOs ever. Accomplished nothing and brag about everything.When the phone rang she hid. She should be imprisoned not elected.
Not that I have an opinion.
The New York Times shills for Hillary.
It comes out of the same bottomless fund which pays for all of the vacations that Obama's family takes.
The DNC, and all who support it, are criminal.
> I wonder who is paying for her staff?
Look in the mirror.
But you already knew that.
“The Bloody hands of Clinton. The most incompetent SOs ever. Accomplished nothing and brag about everything.When the phone rang she hid. She should be imprisoned not elected.”
Come on, don’t sugar coat it. Those two felonius peckers (Bill and Hill) should be doin time in Leavenworth. ...Im my opinion
If the G.O.P.E. doesn’t get their collective heads out of their asses, H. Clinton will be the next POTUS and by that, I mean quit liberalizing the republican party.
I thought at one time, they had reached absolute rock bottom with Romney but just possibly there is a candidate out there somewhere that’s at least as bad as him, if not worse.
Transition to oblivion would be nice.
I think she will take a run at it and I think she won’t get there. I do not think her health will hold up. She looks badly and the history of strokes in her family, blood clots etc. may do her in.
Can you imagine with all the talk of the Kenyan Kommunist's conspiratorial illegal take-over of the government for the alleged/supposed Obama third-term dicktatorship what Hillary no doubt is planning even at this very moment?
“Those two felonius peckers (Bill and Hill) should be doin time in Leavenworth. ...Im my opinion”
A friend says that all politicians should serve two terms; one in office and one in prison.
That’s a good one. Kinda reminds me of the one of how do you know when a politician is lying? His lips are moving.
Hillary $21.5 million
Bill $80 million
I suppose that they could spare a few bucks for staff salaries & office rent as a gamble on a grab for even MORE power & wealth.
Think of it as an INVESTMENT in their future.
Why run for office when there’s all that Loral Space kickback cash in the bank ?

“At this point ,.. what is the difference “...
Instead of calling it a “transition office”, opponents should
be referring to it as the “Benghazi Safe House”.
It took hillary over four months to prepare her Congressional response
... and yet we still await disclosure of the identity of other +30 survivors/hostages
and still await disclosure regarding the administrations’ arms trade that went on there.
The general electorate voted youth and attractiveness over age and experience in 2008. McCain was specifically called out as being old in 2008. In 2008 agism in America was as hip as popular as antisemitism was in Germany in 1939. I do not believe enough will have changed in America's culture by 2016 to allow the country to elect a 70-year old unattractive woman as President.
Hillary is old and ugly today, in 2013. In 2016 she will be older and uglier. She is also very white. Antonio Villaraigosa, Cory Booker, and Julian Castro are more likely candidates for the youth and ethnic craving Democrats.
Democrat precedence suggests because Julian Castro is the least experienced potential candidate, and shares a name with one of America's greatest enemies, he is a shoe-in for the nomination.
If the GOP is turning left, it's because the voters that keep electing them are turning left. We're not going to get Conservative nominees until we win the voters over to Conservative values.
I don’t think the alternatives on the Dem. side are any better. You have Biden, Cuomo from NY and that jerk/loves taxes Governor from Maryland.
It’s not about the money. It’s about the power.
The GOP better slam her presidential aspirations hard immediately. It worked with Ashley Judd. The taste of running became so bitter she dropped out. The same needs to happen to Hillary. Start now and don’t give up until the 2016 primaries are over. Put her on defense until she crumbles.
Of course, Hillary will run on "Clinton's economy" and the "peace and prosperity of the Clinton years", so we'd better have answers ready.
And we'd better be ready to post those answers at sites where lefties and undecideds will see them.
The most dangerous of the three. The other two are just blithering incompetents. Martin O'Malley is also incompetent, but absolutely amoral in my opinion. He clearly has his eye set on the White House.
“Why run for office when theres all that Loral Space kickback cash in the bank ?”
“Power is the great aphrodisiac.”
Henry A. Kissinger
My guess is neither of them are much excited by each other and thus are in need of Dr. Kissinger’s elixir.
I suspect the GOP elites are trying to frog-boil us into accepting Jeb Bush for 2016.
That’ll work, all right.
