Emily’s List launches effort to elect female president; hopes for Hillary Clinton
Yahoo! News ^ | 5/2/2013 | Rachel Rose Hartman

At the kickoff of a six-figure campaign to elect America's first female president in 2016, Emily's List President Stephanie Schriock addressed the question on everybody's mind: Will Hillary Clinton run?

"There is one name that seems to be getting mentioned more than others," Schriock told reporters at the National Press Club Thursday. "We do not know if Hillary is going to run. But we're hopeful that she may."

Schriock, whose group (the name stands for "Early Money Is Like Yeast") works to get pro-choice Democratic women elected to office at the local, state and federal levels, noted there are other women who could run for president in 2016, but that she believes Clinton currently has the best chance to win.

"I think it’s clear if she decides to take this on, she’s in an incredible position," Schriock said in response to a reporter's question. "[But] for us, it’s not about one particular candidate."

Emily's List's effort—which will utilize its network of 2 million members—is called the "Madam President Campaign." It will focus on battleground states such as Iowa, Nevada and New Hampshire, and will include town hall meetings, online events, ads and Internet engagement.

The group says it's armed with data commissioned from political pollsters Anzalone Liszt Grove Research that shows America has reached a "tipping point" and is ready to see a woman as president.

According to the poll,

Maybe she will succumb to old age before 2016.

The first thing they need to do is make up their minds. Do they want a female president or do they want Hillary as president?

I was thinking the headline should have said “...launches effort to elect female president; settles for Hillary Clinton.”

Let’s hope Hillary! won’t be available because she will be serving time in federal prison for lying to Congress about Benghazi.

The indelible image of Hillary standing at Andrews AFB surrounded by the coffins of brave men she willingly let die so that this godless president could keep campaigning for re-election is a new low for a U.S. politician.

I think I may hate her more than I even hate Obama, and that’s saying something.

They’d have a serious conniption fit if the first woman to become President was a conservative.

We scraped the bottom of the barrel for the first “black” president so might as well scrape the bottom of another barrel for the first female POTUS.

I don't believe that 68 is too old to be president, but I have been telling my liberal friends that if they ever accused Reagan of being senile in office they are going to have some 'splainin to do when they start lining up behind Clinton next year.

She won't win anyway. 2008 was supposed to be her year. She had the EXACT SAME favorable/unfavorable numbers in 2005 as she does today. She ended up losing to someone America had never heard of at the time. This will happen again because the "unfavorable" numbers are a hard 40% that won't vote for her no matter what. The liberal media is excited about her right now because they have no one else to talk about.
