Ready for Hillary to launch new video

Washington (CNN) - Ready for Hillary, the super PAC encouraging Hillary Clinton to launch a second bid for the White House, couldn't be happier about the news that she is considering it.

So on Wednesday the group will launch a video to celebrate, according to an official with the super PAC.

It features her concession speech in Washington, D.C., on June 6, 2008, at the National Building Museum, where she ended her hard-fought campaign against Barack Obama in the Democratic presidential primary.

"We will someday launch a woman into the White House," she says to extended cheers. At the time, it ended her supporters' hopes that it would be her.

But those supporters have resurrected that speech to suggest that now – especially after electing the nation's first black president – the United States is truly ready for a woman. The video highlights that with iconic images of the suffrage movement.

As of this posting, Ready for Hillary had amassed close to 985,000 "likes" on Facebook. Advisers to the group say they're on track to hit 1 million supporters by Wednesday. Incidentally, that is when Hillary Clinton will appear on stage in New York City at the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative.

    She has some experiences that lend to being president. Conservatives will automatically dismiss her because she is married to Bill. There are many other bits and pieces that conservatives will say that everything she does is wrong which disqualifies her from holding elected office. I just don't buy that.

    I have a lot of love and trust for Hillary. I think she will make a better President than Obama. The country will be in good hands when she takes the White House. Go Hillary 2016!!!
