(Newser) – Sure, she may not even run, but Hillary Clinton has already got a 2016 support network in place: Two super PACs are poised to fund a potential presidential run. The group "Ready for Hillary" filed with the Federal Election Commission on Friday, Politico reports, not long after "HillaryClintonSuperPAC" did so. "Our purpose is simple: We are ready to work for Hillary to be president when she is ready to run," says the George Washington University professor chairing the former.

"When our website launches in a few weeks, we plan to reach out to our grassroots networks and contributors to mobilize them to support her," Allida Black tells the Center for Public Integrity, calling the organization "a small group of skilled and dedicated Hillary supporters and Obama supporters." HillaryClintonSuperPAC, meanwhile, was formed by Iowa resident Nigel Wallace.

Let's have some fun and play this out.. Assume: Hillary reigns from 2017-2024 Questions: Who will be her VP during her second term? (Sarah Kovner?) Would another Democrat challenge that VP for the next reign beginning in 2025?
