(LIN) — It only took 12 minutes.
In that time, Hillary Rodham Clinton riled up her fans, excited for a potential 2016 run for the former first lady, senator and secretary of state. On April 2, Clinton made her first appearance since ending her stint as secretary of state by speaking at the Vital Voices Global Leadership Awards.
Her speech came just hours after ReadyForHillary.com was started by the Friends of Hillary PAC to support a future candidacy and start raising money.
At this time, Clinton has publicly announced that she has no plans to run for president again, but it is an option she's not ruling out.
"My advice to everyone is to chill out," Mo Elleithee, a top spokesman for Clinton's 2008 campaign, tells The Associated Press. "There's no need for all this breathless anticipation at this point."
Either way, her support is growing online from the "I'm Ready" testimonials on ReadyForHillary.com, as well as an exponential influx of likes on the Ready for Hillary Facebook Page.
Clinton will also be traveling across the country after her new memoir is launched in June 2014. Many speculate that this book tour is a nice built-in campaign strategy for a potential 2016 run. The memoir, which has not been titled yet, will focus on her years as secretary of state.
In the meantime, Clinton is not slowing down for speaking engagements at fundraisers and advocacy groups for now. She is scheduled to speak Friday at the Women in the World Summit in New York.
