  •  Priorities USA is positioning itself to (10+ / 0-)

    get behind Clinton.

    The people familiar with the plans said Priorities is developing a different mission than Ready for Hillary, a group started earlier this year by ardent Clinton supporters and now backed by longtime Clinton associates. While Ready for Hillary is focused on grassroots organizing, Priorities is planning to become what one of the sources called “the big money vehicle” that would produce and air expensive television advertisements.

      •  Why? (0+ / 0-)

        They just want to prepare for the most likely nominee. That would be Hillary whether Biden runs or not.

        •  It means Obama's (0+ / 0-)

          organization is not going to be promoting Biden. That means Biden will have next to nothing in terms of institutional support, at least compared to Clinton's. That also means its impossible for him to seriously challenge her.
