Hillary Clinton's New Website: Sure Looks Presidential

BlogHer Original Post

Is she? Or isn't she? Hillary Clinton's new website, HillaryClintonOffice.com sure looks Presidential. The site, which was created on January 31 -- the day before she stepped down as Secretary of State -- doesn't mention "campaign", "2016" or "President", but look at the stately portrait of former First Lady and diplomat, and what comes to your mind?

Clinton's new website features only her photo and a contact form for comments, scheduling speaking engagements, and media inquiries. A check of domain name registration shows that the site owner has chosen to remain private. However, the Friends of Hillary campaign site directs visitors to this mysterious new URL.

While Hillary's been mum about her plans to run for President in 2016, actions speak louder than words. A super PAC launched by a 2008 Clinton campaigner Alida Black called Ready For Hillary also launched over the weekend.

Who can doubt Hillary's intentions, even if she's only teasing us with her Mona Lisa gaze? 2016 is still almost four years away, and after her stint as Secretary of State and and her no-nonsense Benghazi testimony, Clinton has solidified support among her followers -- and provoked the ire of her critics, as well. She's no scrappy newcomer trying to make a name for herself. We know she's committed to policies that include women and children, and she's proven her political mettle. Hillary Clinton doesn't need to say anything. A picture tells a thousand words.

What do you think about Hillary Clinton for President? Are you excited?
