Hillary Clinton has launched a new home page just days after stepping down as Secretary of State – further fueling speculation that she is positioning herself to run for president in 2016.
Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign now links to the new page, www.hillaryclintonoffice.com.
Clinton has been coyly answering questions about her ambitions for high office ever since President Barack Obama was reelected in November.
Her new site went live on January 31, the same day she finally disbanded her 2008 campaign organization, Hillary Clinton for President.
The web page is simple – it features a picture of Clinton smiling warmly and a form to contact her ‘office.’
Clinton has repeatedly said she plans to rest for several months after four years of traveling around the world as Secretary of State.
The last time Clinton answered the ‘2016 question’ was during her joint interview with Obama on ’60 Minutes.’
She said, ‘I am still secretary of State. So I’m out of politics. And I’m forbidden from even hearing these questions.’
Clinton, 65, has reiterated several times that she is ‘tired’ and wants to relax after her years of service. However, she insisted that she will remain active in public life and especially fight for opportunities for women and girls.
Even so, former President Bill Clinton and their daughter Chelsea sent out a mass email to supporters on Tuesday introducing the news site.
The message urged supporters to ‘thank Hillary for making our country and our world, stronger, safer and better. She inspires us every day — and we hope she inspires you, too. Please take a moment to send Hillary your personal note of thanks.’
Friends have already established pro-Clinton Super PACs to help raise money for a potential 2016 presidential run.
