    Financier George Soros backs Hillary Clinton for U.S. president

    Besides Soros, Democratic donors Amber and Steve Mostyn and Clinton friend Susie Tompkins Buell are among the major donors to Ready For Hillary. Democratic lawmakers such as U.S. Senators Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York have publicly urged Clinton to run for president.
    Financier George Soros backs Hillary Clinton for U.S. president

    (Reuters) - Billionaire financier George Soros, a major Democratic donor, is backing an effort to persuade former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to run for president in 2016, a spokesman said on Thursday.

    Soros, 83, has pledged $25,000 to political action committee Ready For Hillary, the largest and best-funded independent group backing a potential Clinton candidacy. The wife of former President Bill Clinton would be widely viewed as the favorite for the Democratic presidential nomination if she decides to run.

    "His support for Ready for Hillary is an extension of his long-held belief in the power of grassroots organizing," said Soros spokesman Michael Vachon.

    Soros' pledge puts him on the PAC's National Finance Council, along with several other major Democratic donors and officials, the group said.

    But symbolically, Soros' support could mean much more - particularly at a time when Clinton's supporters are seeking to ward off potential challengers to her in Democratic presidential primaries.

    Soros was a huge financial backer of Democrats during the 2004 election cycle, donating an estimated $27.5 million. He also contributed heavily to Senator Barack Obama's presidential campaign in 2008. Clinton lost the Democratic nomination to Obama that year.

    During last year's election, however, Soros largely stayed on the sidelines, expressing a distaste for new election laws that allowed unlimited fundraising and spending by new "Super PACs" and non-profit groups. Soros eventually supported some independent Democratic groups during the November election.

    Clinton, 65, a former U.S. senator from New York whose four-year run as secretary of state ended in February, has acknowledged that she is considering another run for president but has said she likely will not decide until next year.

    In the meantime, she has begun to look like a candidate - staying in the spotlight by appearing at a series of paid speeches and fundraisers. Last weekend she publicly endorsed family friend Terry McAuliffe, the Democratic nominee for Virginia governor.

    Ready For Hillary, which is not officially affiliated with Clinton, was founded this year by a former aide in Clinton's unsuccessful campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008.
    The group had raised $1.25 million by July and now claims to have more than 20,000 donors, including many longtime Democratic fundraisers and Obama supporters. Members of Obama's 2012 re-election campaign also have signed on.

    Besides Soros, Democratic donors Amber and Steve Mostyn and Clinton friend Susie Tompkins Buell are among the major donors to Ready For Hillary. Democratic lawmakers such as U.S. Senators Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York have publicly urged Clinton to run for president.

    The most recent Reuters/Ipsos tracking poll in mid-September showed Clinton nearly 40 percentage points ahead of her nearest potential challenger in a Democratic presidential campaign, Vice President Joe Biden.

    Reuters/Ipsos polling also showed her to be Americans' top choice for president, with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie as her closet potential challenger among Republicans. Americans preferred Clinton over Christie by 19 points, the September poll said.

    Yes, We Should Discuss the Clintons’ Past

    When Kentucky Senator and Republican presidential aspirant Rand Paul re-surfaced the Monica Lewinsky scandal as relevant to Hillary Clinton’s presidential candidacy, fellow Republican Karl Rove immediately took him to task on national television.
    “Frankly, Rand Paul spending a lot of time talking about the mistakes of Bill Clinton does not look like a big agenda for the future of the country,” said Rove.
    Actually, it was Paul’s wife Kelley who first brought it up in a Vogue Magazine interview. Why should Republicans be accused of a “war on women” when Mrs. Clinton’s husband, former president Bill, chartered new territory in “predatory” sexual behavior, argued Mrs. Paul.
    When Senator Paul was asked about this on Meet the Press, he made the same point.
    According to the latest realclearpolitics.com average of national polls, Rand Paul is a serious contender for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.
    So what’s up with one of the Republican Party’s pundit-in-chiefs, Karl Rove, attacking one of his own party’s presidential contenders? Isn’t it the other party’s candidates you are supposed to attack?
    This, of course, is about the ongoing battle for the heart and soul of the Republican Party, which is the preliminary to the main event – the battle for the heart and soul of the nation.
    If understood correctly, Bill Clinton’s mistakes, and how his wife Hillary related to them, are indeed a “big agenda for the future of the country.” But it’s not where Karl Rove wants to go, nor does the wing of the party that wants to bury social conservatives. So he is already shooting intra-party friendly fire.
    Some feel that collapse of “traditional values” is irrelevant to the nation’s future and getting back on track to fiscal soundness, growth, and prosperity.
    But can anyone really believe that if a few hundred years ago almost half of American babies were born to unwed mothers, if getting an abortion was like taking an aspirin for a headache, if marriage and family was considered one of many possible lifestyles, if marriage itself was open to redefinition based on whim, we would be where we are today?
    A free society, a society where politicians are not in your face and running your life, requires personal virtue and responsibility.
    It is not accident that as values collapsed, as family disintegrated, the welfare state, big government, has grown and taken its place.
    In a recent Gallup poll, 71 percent between 18 and 34 years old said having a child out of wedlock is morally acceptable, 49 percent said pornography is morally acceptable, and 48 percent said teenage sex is morally acceptable.
    Can anyone really believe that a society with these kinds of values can and will have limited government?
    We cannot underestimate the influence Bill Clinton, America’s first 60’s generation president, played in creating this kind of popular culture. Once it was okay that the President of the United States could betray his nation and his wife and fornicate with a young intern in the Oval Office, the door was open to almost anything.
    We also cannot underestimate the impact on our popular culture and values that the wife of this man – a woman who now aspires to be our next president – was willing to tolerate this behavior and rationalize it away.
    This is not the behavior of a strong, courageous woman but that of a weak, unprincipled woman.
    Latest data from the Census Bureau shows that 77.5 percent of families in the top fifth of income earners are headed by married couples. Eight-three percent of families in the lowest fifth are singles or single parent households.
    Marriage and traditional values are the bulwark of a free and prosperous society.
    The Clintons helped break it all down. Karl Rove is dead wrong. This is a very “big agenda for the future of the country.”

    Hillary’s Billionaires

    Billionaires Alice Walton, George Soros, and Marc Benioff all made major contributions to the Super PAC supporting Hillary Clinton’s presidential run in 2016, according to recent Federal Election Commission filings.

    The three each contributed $25,000 to Ready for Hillary PAC, the maximum allowed donation, Bloomberg reported on Sunday.

    Walton is the daughter of Walmart founder Sam Walton. She is the world’s 13th richest person and has an estimated worth of $33.9 billion.
