Hillary Clinton Announces She’s Running For President

After nearly two years of speculation, Hillary Clinton has officially announced that she’s running for President of the United States.

The 67-year-old politician and former First Lady launched her second presidential bid on Sunday (April 12) via emails from John D. Podesta, her campaign chairman.

“I wanted to make sure you heard it first from me – it’s official: Hillary‘s running for president,” the email reads (via NYT).

He ends the email with, “We need to make the middle class mean something again,” which is highlighted in her first campaign video below.

Meanwhile, Hillary‘s daughter Chelsea tweeted, “Very proud of you Mom! @HillaryClinton”

    Empty promises. Don’t be fooled!
    Vote third party! Sick of the two party system and you know what they say about doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results….we aren’t THAT crazy are we?

  • onehunnit

    really doesnt matter what party no candidate is ever fit to run a country their all the same

  • jane

    a female president would be awesome, but it won’t be her. i think her time came and went.

  • troy

    Her time already came and went. Weren’t the Dems mokcing Regan were being too old when he became President? Clinton also has health issues. Yeah, she is not fit both ways to run. Time for someone new.

  • matt

    Big shocker

  • Baseliner

    no thank you

  • emmafabulous

    HEY Hillary you PILLOCK, your husband is a paedophile or hwat

  • smiley

    I don’t get why people dislike like this woman, because I think she’s great! For that reason alone, I think it’d be awesome to have her as “president,” coupled with just how wonderful it would be to finally see a woman govern the U.S., it’s high noon this takes place! Come on guys, when the time comes, vote for Hilary! Lol.

  • emmafabulous

    HEY Hillary your husband is a paedophile or what you Americans call a pedophile, your Bill been to that man house in Caribbean. over twenty time. now the court case will be reopen in August this summer. your husband his is own war going on for your girls, you Hillary and Bill can’t hide for this one.

  • emmafabulous

    Sorry tying too fast your husband is a paedophile or what you Americans call pedophile.

  • emmafabulous

    What a load of codswallop that British for nonsense. Hillary is pass her sell date. Hillary is one big FAILURE

  • Heidi

    God help us if she’s running for president

  • Maria

    Because she is slick, shady, and has a LOT of baggage behind her. I don’t trust her one bit, much less with anything regarding national security OR budget. She would be a disaster.

  • Jana500

    Great news! She is exactly what we need in a leader.

    Now the rethuglicans will make up more sexist and nonsensical lies about her. Secretary Clinton has been through more vetting and examination than probably any other candidate in history and yet nothing has stuck. Well, they can waste all their time trying to create scandal out of whole cloth but she’s still standing and she will be still standing come inauguration day 2017.

    Get used to it cause she will be President Hillary Clinton.

    That will be a great day for not only this country but the world.

    Don’t speak such ignorance, she still has a chance of succeeding despite the age factor- or the fact that she’s resurfaced from long ago. Her warmth, personality and competence will make up for anything else.

    Hillary Clinton seems to have a high moral standard, so I doubt she’d be a corrupt one (president).

  • Jana500

    Ronald Reagan was 70 when he was first sworn in and was already showing signs of Alzheimer’s disease. Maybe his mental incapacity is what allowed crazy right wing nuts to get a foothold in the government. Sad day for this country when he became president.

  • Jana500

    Secretary Clinton is also smarter than most presidents in recent history.

  • smiley

    Hmm? I must not know something (or many things) behind the scenes, when it comes to Hillary. If it’s true, then she’s good at concealing it.

    Let me guess, you discovered all of her secrets and dirty laundry, through a tell-all book of some sort. Lol. Just a joke.

  • smiley

    Exactly my point. Her eloquence and poise speaks volumes…she comes across as a woman of intelligence, a woman w/ a clear, sound mind.

    Finally, someone is rooting for her. Glad to see this :).

  • troy

    Are you even american? If you aren’t stop spewing BS! He is a far better President then most Dems have been. Yeah, the Republican Party lately has been a joke, but Reagan was a good President whether you like him or not. Better then that sex addict Clinton or Odummer are.
    You just proved my point at how Dems used to mock at him being 70 years old and a Preisdent with health issues. Well, Clinton is close to 70 and has health issues like aneurysm. Thats worse then the beginning of getting Alzheimer disease .
    LOL, the country faced its worst when ppl like Bush, Clinton and Obama came into office.They are far bigger jokes then Regan were.

  • emmafabulous

    What a load of tosh. Hillary is smart, what a guffaw.

  • troy

    “Every Day American need a champion, and I want to be that champion”
    Lets not forget she said some months ago she and her family were ‘broke’ when they left the White House. Yeah, living in million dollars homes, throwing Chelsea a wedding that costed 10 million and getting money from doing speeches and book deals must have been a low point in the Clinton lives. Boo-Hoo Hilary. Boo-Ho. Some champion for the american folks
    Just like how Odummer said America is obsessed with celebrity lifestyle when he infact lives like one. This party and their candidates are out of touch with reality. God forbid if a Republican ever spoke like that.

  • emmafabulous

    You can’t serious is this a wind up. that is one big joke.

  • emmafabulous

    Spot on.

  • troy

    She can continue being ‘broke’ since she is far too old and probably not fit to run. Let her stay in her ‘broke’ home with her millions and all.

  • emmafabulous

    Wait till the court case reopen in Florida in August, Hillary husband is a paedophile or what Americans call pedophile. Bill been to Jeffrey Epstein house in the Caribbean over twenty times. U.S. billionaire Jeffery Epstein is a convicted pedophile. Bill has is own war on young girls.

  • smiley

    I hope it’s just a rumor.

  • Jana500

    Dear Sweet Troy, yes I am and I lived through the Reagan years and I saw what his administration did to try to destroy Medicare and social security. I saw him make one of the most bone headed mistakes in all financial history by deregulating the banks.
    No one ragged on him for his age or his health. They all pretended he was healthy as a horse and he was except for his mind. As a lobbyist as the time I got to see first hand and up close exactly what was going on in that administration and he was a terrible president for the middle class. Even very staunch Reagan supporters would quietly voice concern over his mental state and this was during his first presidential campaign.
    If you have access to Sec. Clinton’s medical records then by all means share. You don’t know much about medical conditions so perhaps you need to refrain from discussing them.

  • Jana500

    This is all they got. Stupid taken out of context one liners. When they are this desperate with lame age and weight sexist jokes and made up scandals then you know you have it in the bag. And they know it, too.

  • Jana500

    You are supposed to take your meds EVERY day. This is what happens when you skip.

  • Jana500

    Emma dear, you are deranged and your crazy accusations are just a hint at it. Please take your meds and stop spewing lies.

  • Jana500

    The rethuglicans love to take things out of context and try to make an issue of it. Here they go again. I’ll give Reagan’s speechwriters credit for that.

  • troy

    Go look it up moron. She did say she and her family were ‘broke’ and ‘homeless’ when they left the White House!

  • troy

    You are an idiot. She was rushed to the hospital and her family were seen leaving the hospital where she was staying at when her medical issue surfaced. She had an aneurysm and a blood clot in the brain. How you have someone in the office with that kind of health issues?

  • Dawne

    OMG, just how naive are you? And you think the men who have been slowly destroying your country are not ‘shady’……………..how old are you?

  • Dawne

    Be careful who you call a pedophile, little girl……….Clinton is the most beloved ex president ………polling at fifty six percent………….get a grip.

  • Dawne

    the present VP also survived an aneurysm…………do your homework, fool

  • Mike1288

    Seriously america?! Are we lacking that much creativity that we support families (Clinton and Bush) who combined ruined this country? Next announcement cause I’m passing on this one…

  • Mike1288

    Yeah remember when the left was attacking McCain for his age? She’s now older than him when he ran. I didn’t even understand it. When you have Palin as a running mate why attack his age?

  • Mike1288

    Just ignore Jana500, they obviously don’t know what they are talking about. Reagan was a good president, even Obama used his policies in the last election.

  • Mike1288

    Your counting your chickens before they hatch. She has a really unethical past that will matter. When you get fired from being a lawyer cause you lie, it says a lot. I mean a lawyer called her an unethical lawyer…not a good sign.

  • Mike1288

    Please educate yourself. I can deal with someone who has an opinion based off facts and shows a clear interest on improving the US even if its not how I would do it. But your statement is just ignorant.

  • Mike1288

    Yea cause “WHAAAAAT DOES IT MATTER!” sounds really eloquent.

  • Mike1288

    Don’t forget when Hilary represented a rapist and wanted the girl taken out. What a feminist!

  • smiley

    My opinion was based off of the fact that in (10) yrs.+, Hillary has always maintained a clean profile. This is the 1st time I hear anything different, because apparently there are rumors/ accusations on here, from people stating otherwise. Not my problem. I’m darn sure you aren’t 100% well-informed on every subject, all of the time- no matter how much you think you know.

    My apologies for making an opinion on a gossip site! Ugh, how dare I?! (Notice my sarcasm.) Have a great day :)!

  • Mike1288

    Clearly you aren’t informed enough to know she has in fact been involved in not one but two scandals within the last six months. One is keeping a private email and server which when requested to see (regarding Benghazi emails) was completely erased. The other was regarding her charity. She has a long history of scandals and they aren’t unfounded. You have a great day as well!

  • Jana500

    I get it now. You’re just illiterate in the English language. You said she HAS an aneurysm which she obviously doesn’t.

    So what is your first language? Besides Gibberish?

  • Jana500

    Many people were attacking McCain for his idiocy on a number of issues. I have some respect for McCain on some issues and for his service but no one with half a brain wanted him or his VP candidate anywhere near the White House.

    Boy, you are clueless. When you have a completely unqualified VP then you really HAVE to worry about the age and health of the president. Try to keep up.

  • Jana500

    As I said, taking what she said out of context is a typical rethuglican trick. And she was homeless. LOL!

    The Clintons were never people who spent their lives in public service amassing wealth. When they left the WH they didn’t have much in the way of assets. I am happy to see them prosper after President Clinton left the WH. They have both worked hard and earned what they have.
