By admitting that they are already gathering the money to do this very thing it is discouraging other contenders that don't or won't have the ability to raise the kind of money that would be required to counter them. As the OP stated, it is a bully tactic.
    What's really gross to me is that they do this BEFORE Hillary announced her running. Whether forgone a conclusion as people may think, there should be a candidate before such backing should happen. Policy? They are admitting it doesn't matter. I mean, where does Hillary stand on the Trans Pacific Partnership trade agreement? I bet they don't have a single clue. They just back her. To me this seems to be a movement that screams how much they are scared of Republicans far more than saying how much they like a certain dem... because they don't know what she stands for. They just know she isn't GOP. It's just disgusting and blatant bullying of our governmental structure.

    The most important issue here is the influx of big money pouring into our political system from, corporate and wealthy donors.
    Just 61donors gave an average of 4.7 million each and matched the 285.2 million given by 1,425,500 small donors giving under 200 to major party presidential candidates.
    Don't worry so much about which candidate wins; worry about who owns them-hint it won't be us.Unless perhaps your name is Koch, or Adelson. Thank you Citizens United for giving away our democracy.

    America won't weather a Hillary Clinton presidency. Besides, no more Bush's or Clinton's.

    Heya Monte.....you got that Right. Only thing left to do now is.....hope she takes the bait. So she can be destroyed politically which then will damage Bilbo and that Global BS he started. From now and going forward.

    Although.....with the Saudi who helped fund her campaign last time round. Funds might not be as magnaminous from them this time Round.

    Biggest Liberal ‘Super PAC’ to Fund Possible Clinton Bid

    The Obama political operation that once buried Hillary Rodham Clinton’s White House ambitions is now rapidly converging around her possible 2016 presidential bid, conferring on Mrs. Clinton enormous early advantages in money, expertise and voter targeting techniques.

    On Thursday, Priorities USA Action, a “super PAC” that played an important role in helping re-elect President Obama, announced that it was formally aligning itself with Mrs. Clinton and would begin raising money to fend off potential opponents for 2016. The group — the largest Democratic super PAC in the country — also named new directors to steer the organization, appointments that will both cement the group’s pro-Clinton tilt and also thrust veterans of Mr. Obama’s political and fund-raising operation into the center of the post-Obama Democratic Party.
    Neoliberalism is just as bad as Neoconservatism. Either one will wreck America. One already did, and unless Hillary is stopped, so will the other one.

    this seems like a great way to render your vote largely meaningless. because the politicians no longer need to appeal to you through policy positions
