There is no official Hillary Clinton campaign organization. Ms. Clinton has not yet indicated whether she wants to be president. Lots of people hate her, for reasons that may or may not make any sense.

And yet. Nearly 150,000 people have signed on to the Ready for Hillary Super PAC's Facebook group. Sixteen thousand of them have ordered the bumper sticker. Current events are widely discussed in terms of their effect on her chances. Clearly I'm not the only one who wants this to happen or thinks it will.

I don't know how normal grassroots movements get started. All I know is this: I posted something on Facebook, trying to explain to a friend why this matters to me. And then I thought, I need to do more.

So I did. I bought, set up a starter Web site, invited other Hillary fans to share their stories, started Kossacks for Hillary, wrote this diary. (All in the last two hours.)

Let's see where it goes, shall we?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
