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 its clear if she decides to take this on, shes in an incredible position," Schriock said in response to a reporter's question. "[But] for us, its not about one particular candidate."
Emily's List's effortwhich will utilize its network of 2 million membersis 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.

which is a rat polling machine
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.
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.
They didn’t want Palin or Bachman so screw them.
Joe Biden is Nobama’s life insurance, so who would be Hitlery’s. Who would be stupid enough for her.
"What difference does Benghazi make, I'll be President anyway!"
I thought she was 70.
i don’t think mentioning women and yeast in the same sentence is going to bring up any pleasant images. /emily acronym and hillary
I would vote for Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachmann any time.
Emily’s Losers and abortion are usually synonymous. Notice now it’s just about women candidates supposedly.
I have recently been struggling through Barbara Olsen's The Final Days. I say struggling because I can read only about three pages at a time. More than that and I would probably stroke out.
Of course it's highly unlikely anyone on this board would give The Hildabeaste the time of day, but that book has page after page of documented crimes committed by the Clinton Syndicate. Olsen's earlier book, Hell to Pay is the benchmark book on The Hildabeaste.
We already have the first woman pResident. What are they bitchin about?
...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.I remember a "joke" by the reprehensible Tina Fey, years ago on SNL's Weekend Update -- that talk about Hitlery's nomination was a sign that the DNC wanted its ass handed to it. Emily's List is not a business now, it's a PAC.
She just wants a “woman” president ? Not caring about the individuals ability to lead etc ? Man or woman I care not albeit they must be a conservative constitutionalist to get my vote.
This is what is wrong with our nation. Idiots who want a three balled cat for president because its a first when such agendas may be America’s last....damn.
My opinion...stay safe !
How about just going for the best President and stop caring what sex or color they are. How about that?
“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?”
The first thing they need to do is make up their minds whether they want to run a business or a political campaign.
If I was already a member (which I’m not because Emily’s List is basically a scam), I’d quit pronto and tell them why.
Rumors have it that Michelle Obama is going to run in 2016. Emily’s List will pivot to her if that happens.
We had more then enough of Clinton...
*snicker* to you as well!
Emily’s list is all for women candidates, but ONLY if they’re vehemently pro-abortion.
I believe the first woman President WILL be a Republican, if not a doctrinaire conservative.
