She’s Running? Hillary Aides Launch New Super-PAC

Excerpt:

Old and busted: Buying the DNC. New hotness: Competing against it. NBC News reports that former aides of Hillary Clinton have launched a new super-PAC that looks an awful lot like a campaign. Party Majority, NBC reports, will “act as a parallel structure to Democratic party committees at the national and state levels,” while remaining in the hands of “Clinton world,” as Jonathan Allen characterizes it later.

What could go wrong? Plenty, actually, especially given the ostensible aim of Party Majority:

Lux and co-founder Adam Parkhomenko, who built Ready for Hillary later served as director of grassroots engagement on Clinton’s presidential campaign and is currently a paid adviser to Clinton, have been frustrated by the lack of coordination and continuity in Democratic campaigns. Every four years, a presidential campaign builds infrastructure across the country only to see it wither by the next set of elections or as new crews take over leadership roles at party committees.

“The days of starting from scratch, not sharing information, and not working together are over,” said [co-founder Mike] Lux, who was a special assistant for public liaison in President Bill Clinton’s White House.

Ultimately, Party Majority is designed to address what its founders see as deficiencies in the way Democrats run campaigns right now — too much emphasis on data analytics, television advertising and raising money for specific candidates and not enough on building the networks of personal relationships that activate voters and keep them engaged from election to election.

Whose fault was that? Barack Obama actually built a successful model of ground-up networking for both messaging and GOTV efforts, which helped him salvage the 2012 election, as I wrote in my book Going Red. Obama had so much success that Reince Priebus retooled the RNC to operate on a similar basis, beginning in the 2014 elections and going full strength in the 2016 cycle. Trump ended up eschewing that model, but inexplicably, so did Hillary Clinton — who ran the data-analytics, top-down, ad-driven campaign that Lux and Parkhomenko now decry.

To some extent, Team Hillary had a resource problem if they wanted to replicate the Obama model. Obama had cannibalized Democrats’ national and state resources for his campaigns, and then later folded them into his activist group OFA.

Me too. She can't possibly win but she'll take all the oxygen out of the room and keep any other Democrat from getting traction. Bonus would be if she gets absolutely humiliated in the Dem primary. Double Bonus would be if she get humiliated by Bernie. Triple Bonus would be if she gets SO humiliated that husband Bill and daughter Chelsea are then too embarrassed to ever show their face in public again.

I just don't see a downside.

“Bill & Hillary 2020! Two old strokers! What could go wrong?”

Yeah, it’s a little wordy for a bumper sticker.

The Clintons have found they don't get as much "foundation donation" / bribe money coming in if one of them isn't in office or running for office.

I suspect that is the real reason, to keep the money coming in until they have Chelsea ready to run.
