Wesley Clark endorses Hillary Clinton draft effort

“That’s exactly the message we need to send Hillary Clinton today. She needs to know that if she decides to run for president, then she’ll have an army of supporters behind her. I’m going to be Ready for Hillary. Will you be?”


Clark goes on to herald Clinton's tenure as secretary of State during President Obama's first term in office.

“When Hillary Clinton took over as Secretary of State, America’s image around the globe was badly damaged. Since then, we’ve ended the war in Iraq. We’re winding down in Afghanistan. We decimated Al-Qaeda’s leadership, and helped democracy grow in the Middle East," Clark writes.

“Supporting Hillary is an easy decision for me. I know she’ll steer us straight at home and represent us right abroad,” he says. “We all know that Hillary would make the best president for our country.”

Clinton, for her part, has remained mum about whether she will launch a second bid for the White House. But the draft effort has gained some prominent endorsers early in the process: last week, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) also announced she would be supporting the group. The Missouri lawmaker later said that Clinton called her following the endorsement, lending credence to the notion that the former first lady is carefully considering a presidential bid.
