Uh Oh, Joe!

Politico reports former top aides to President Obama and Joe Biden’s re-election campaign have signed on with “Ready For Hillary” Super PAC in a blow to the Vice President’s 2016 presidential aspirations and a personal diss by his former employees. The move is “aimed at showing the Obama torch passing to Clinton”

The pro-Hillary Clinton super PAC “Ready for Hillary” has brought on the firm founded by President Obama’s top field organizers, part of a growing bid to build a movement ahead of a potential 2016 campaign by the former first lady. 

The move is part pragmatism and part demonstration, aimed at showing the Obama torch passing to Clinton, who has yet to say if she’ll run a second presidential campaign. The firm, 270 Strategies, was founded by Jeremy Bird and Mitch Stewart.
