Hillary Clinton has decided to run for president, according to a secret “eyes on the prize” memo obtained by Mondoweiss.

The email to Clinton today from her longtime adviser Ann Lewis says the Clinton team will be “well on our way to the White House” and will have a “wildly successful” campaign if it can stick to “the recipe from tried and true campaign plans” to meet a $1 billion fundraising goal.

“You’re reading a secret message into this email that just isn’t there,” Lewis said later by telephone, dismissing its importance.

We obtained the email inadvertently, because we share a computer server with the Clinton team in Chappaqua, N.Y., and computer privacy is a lot sloppier in upstate NY than in Washington or Martha’s Vineyard.

Here is the memo in full:

    Bullet value point at top is Justice. I take that to mean it’s only fair Hillary get crowned our belated queen. For some odd reason, I don’t think this value justice will be applied to help the Palestinians, nor to prevent war on Iran in behalf Israel. Hillary will try to pile Adelson’s cash on top of Soros cash–those two alone can easily give her all the campaign cash she needs to promote herself. She said email is female (smirk).

        I’m joking too. T’is the spirit of the day.

        Hmmm, spirits sound like a good idea on a snowy day….

        Nah, too early and I’d have to drive to get it.

      To me, a give-away is the stress on “information”. Like Hillary would be less secretive than Obama. If the “I” was for “inclusiveness” I would perhaps not see anything special in the scoop.
