• Hillary 2016? Founder of Hillary Clinton superPAC says, ‘No doubt she’s gonna run.’

    Politics Confidential

    Hillary Clinton had not even stepped down from her post as Secretary of State, when a superPAC supporting her run for president in 2016 was filed with the Federal Election Commission. The superPAC's website launched over the weekend.

    Allida Black is chair and founder of the group, and says she is, as the superPAC is named, "Ready for Hillary."

    "I've been waiting for Hillary all my life. But I am more than ready this time," says Black, who campaigned for Clinton in 14 states in 2008.

    Clinton has not said whether she will throw her hat in the ring, telling ABC News in her last television interview as Secretary of State that she is "flattered and honored" at the intense interest in whether she might run for president in 2016.

  • Bottom Line

    Immigration reform has been at the top of the agenda in Washington, D.C. this week, both in Congress and in the Obama administration. On Monday a bipartisan group of eight Senators introduced a plan for reform, and on Tuesday President Obama presented his own plan, similar to the Senate’s proposal, in a speech in Las Vegas, Nevada.

    Many of you had questions about the details of the plans. Stephen D. Spurlock wanted to know: Will the 11 million plus illegal’s have to register, get a social security number, pay taxes in order to comply?

    Sandy Abraham Stafford wrote in on Facebook: Is there a time frame if immigrants are interested in becoming a citizen to set up the beginning of the process?

    And John Cleeveley tweeted: What border controls will the president support?

    Thank you for all of the great questions, and please keep them coming on Twitter and on Facebook. We’ll talk a lot more about immigration reform this Sunday on “This Week.” My exclusive guest for the program is
