Hillary Clinton Announces Candidacy: 'I'm Hitting the Road to Earn Your Vote'

"Everyday Americans need a champion. I want to be that champion."

Hillary Clinton is running for president. She made it official in a just-released campaign video that calls attention to all the mundane things that normal, well-adjusted people will be doing next year instead of seeking the power to control millions of people's lives.

The video is here.

Wait, that's not it! Sorry. Here it is, I promise.

Her campaign website is also live. "Everyday Americans need a champion," it says. "I want to be that champion."

Clinton is expected to easily win the Democratic Party's nomination, though the general election is (at this point) expected to be a close contest, according to Nate Silver.

On the Republican side, Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul have already declared, and Marco Rubio is expected to join the race on Monday. Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, Lindsey Graham, Rick Santorum, Bobby Jindal, Ben Carson, John Bolton, Newt Gingrich, Donald Trump, and many other crazy people may also run.
