Hillary Clinton is ready for a role in next year's midterm elections.

What that role is exactly is not quite clear.

Clinton has already launched a PAC aimed at helping congressional Democratic candidates in 2018, signaling the former first lady, senator and secretary of State is ready to help her party with fundraising.

She also is looking at the House districts she won in last year’s presidential contest against Donald Trump as part of an autopsy of her failed campaign, according to two sources who have spoken to the former secretary of State.

The news comes on the heels that Barack Obama will make the first official political move of his post-presidency on Thursday, headlining a private fundraiser for the National Democratic Redistricting Committee at a private home in Washington.

The event, which will also be attended by NDRC chair Eric Holder and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, is to help a group backed by Obama to coordinate Democratic efforts in state races and lawsuits to push back on Republican success in gerrymandering over many cycles.

In many statehouses and Congress, that’s left Democrats at a baked-in disadvantage.

It will be interesting to see if Hillary and Barack join forces in the fall.
