Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was presented the Department of Defense’s highest award for public service at the Pentagon on Feb. 14, 2013.

Is this the first campaign staff of 2016?

Ready for Hillary, the super-political action committee pushing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to run for president in 2016, announced its first hire today.

Seth Bringman, a veteran of Clinton’s unsuccessful 2008 campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination, is coming on board as national communications director.

He calls Clinton  “by far the best potential candidate to keep the White House in Democratic hands” and the “most effective in building on the progress that President Obama has made for middle-class Americans.”

Even better: A native of Ohio. Bringman will be based in that key battleground state.

Ready for Hillary was set up last month by supporters of Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign. Its chairwoman is Allida Black, a professor at George Washington University and a longtime Clinton backer. Under federal law, anyone can form a super-PAC to support or oppose any candidate.
