Bottling a 'Victory' for Hillary Clinton

(CNN) - Hillary Clinton has seen strong encouragement from backers who want her to run for president again in 2016.

That support now comes in a sevyal blanc titled "Victory White."

The Clinton Vineyards (no relation) in New York State's Mid-Hudson Valley re-released its Victory White wine to generate excitement for a potential presidential run by the former secretary of state.

Victory White was first released in 1992 after Bill Clinton was elected president and released again four years later to celebrate his second term.

The sevyal blanc returned in 2008 to support Hillary Clinton as she ran for president. The newest wine was bottled last year and runs at a price of $18.50 per bottle.

"We're uncorking this new wine to demonstrate our hope that Hillary will run for the presidency in 2016," Phyllis Feder, owner of Clinton Vineyards, said in a statement. "We invite her supporters across the country to join this effort."

In case you're wondering, the 2012 sevyal blanc "arrives buttery-soft on the palate with a long clean finish," according to Feder.

As part of the "Victory White 2012 campaign," Feder said she will make a contribution to the Ready for Hillary PAC, a super PAC that serves as a framework in case Clinton decides to throw her hat in the ring.

    So is the assumption this wine will be properly aged three years from now when the election actually happens?

    New York is an amazing state. Can't make good wine, though.

    You must be a real hoot at a party! I had an uncle like you; people would cringe as soon as he walked into a room.

    Sayin, let me explain something to you I'll go slow. The four deaths from benghazi were unpredictable, the four thousand plus sent to die by your gop were all but assured, its called bad intent, and your full of it

    This is CNN's latest campaign ad for Hillary Clinton 2016. I don't know about everyone else, but I don't think we need any more presidents with the last name of Kennedy, Clinton or Bush for at least the next hundred years. If we wanted to suck like Europe we could keep electing leaders from the same family. I prefer not to do so.

    --

    numerous requests made for added security, all denied
    security eventually cut, not increased
    numerous attacks in area on other governments, many pull out
    al quaed known to be in the area
    consulate attacked previously
    consultate did not meet security standards
    urgent request for added security just weeks before the attack, denied

    oh yeah.... not predictable at all. how absolutely, totally ludicrous your statement is.

    @just sayin,

    Liberals may or may not "reek of bs and lies", but we also know that "blanc" is French for white. "Benghazi blanc" is a contradiction, as the "blood" you're referring to would indicate a red wine.

    Haha...only in the cartoon world inside a Teatroll's head would a red wine be called "blanc." Got derp?

    And who denied requests for more security funding, the truth shots you down every time. If it was so inevitable, then why not increase security, your goo holds the purse strings fool
