James Carville, a key advisor for President Clinton during his presidential campaign, appears with first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton during a roast in Carville’s honor on June 18, 1993 in Washington.

Democratic consultant and pundit James Carville, who helped put Bill Clinton in the White House, is trying to do the same for the former president’s wife.

Carville today sent out an email on behalf of a super political action committee touting Hillary Clinton for president. While Clinton, a former secretary of state, U.S. senator from New York and first lady, hasn’t announced her plans, supporters are already raising money to support a potential candidacy.

“The enthusiasm and hunger for a Hillary Clinton presidency is unlike anything I’ve ever seen,” Carville wrote in his email. “But it isn’t worth squat to have the fastest car at the racetrack if there ain’t any gas in the tank — and that’s why the work that Ready for Hillary PAC is doing is absolutely critical. We need to convert the hunger that’s out there for Hillary’s candidacy into a real grassroots organization.”
