Political pundit and Democratic strategist James Carville denied reports Thursday that he has joined a super PAC supporting a potential Hillary Clinton presidential bid, but made it clear that he intends to promote efforts aimed at making her the first woman to occupy the Oval Office.
To that purpose, Carville has apparently written an email that will be sent out to potential donors on behalf of the newly formed Ready for Hillary PAC, according to The Washington Post
“I’ve been pretty clear that I’d like to see her run,” Carville told the newspaper. “But I’m not a member of the organization or anything like that.”

Still, his email may be more than enough to at least get the ball rolling on fundraising and organizing to help the former first lady and secretary of state if she decides to run.
“I’m not going to waste my time writing you about how great Hillary is or how formidable she’d be – you know it all already,” the email says, according to the Post. “But it isn’t worth squat to have the fastest car at the racetrack if there ain’t any gas in the tank — and that’s why the work that Ready for Hillary PAC is doing is absolutely critical. We need to convert the hunger that’s out there for Hillary’s candidacy into a real grass-roots organization.”
Carville, who managed Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign, has made no secret of the fact that he would like to see another Clinton in the White House when Barack Obama’s second term ends in 2016. He said no one should be surprised that many Democrats feel the same way, especially after watching Hillary Clinton lose the 2008 party nomination in a tough primary campaign.
“We just want to win,” Carville said back in December. “We think she’s the best person . . . and that’s across the board.”
