From "About Our Movement":
"We are building the national network of grassroots activists that are ready and willing to support Hillary Clinton when she declares her candidacy. We will work online and on the ground to spread our winning message to American voters. When Hillary Clinton is ready to run, we will turn our movement over to her."

>In Spring 2006 the Committee proposed to put up a billboard: "Welcome to Hillary Country.  Iowa is ready for bold leadership in 2008.  Are you?"  The main page of the website proclaimed, "Make this billboard a reality outside the Des Moines, Iowa airport.  Contribute Now."

>On April 27, 2006 the Committee announced a 30-second web commercial "Bold Leadership For a Stronger America," produced by NYC television producer Rebecca Reagan.

>On April 11, 2006 the Committee held its first MeetUp events in Alexandria, VA and New York City.
