    Default It's official: Hillary's running for President

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070120/...pr/clinton2008

    NEW YORK - Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton launched a trailblazing campaign for the White House on Saturday, a former first lady turned political powerhouse intent on becoming the first female president. "I'm in, and I'm in to win," she said.

    In a videotaped message posted on her Web site, Clinton said she was eager to start a dialogue with voters about challenges she hoped to tackle as president — affordable health care, deficit reduction and bringing the "right" end to the Iraq war.

    "I'm not just starting a campaign, though, I'm beginning a conversation with you, with America," she said. "Let's talk. Let's chat. The conversation in Washington has been just a little one-sided lately, don't you think?"
    Clinton's announcement, while widely anticipated, was nonetheless an historic moment in a fast-developing campaign that has already seen the emergence of a formidable black contender, Democratic Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois.

    In an instant, Clinton became the most credible female candidate ever to seek the presidency and the first presidential spouse to attempt to return to the White House in her own right. Her husband, Bill, served two terms as president from 1993 to 2001.

    "I am one of the millions of women who have waited all their lives to see the first woman sworn in as president of the United States — and now we have our best opportunity to see that dream fulfilled," said Ellen Malcolm, president of EMILY's list, which raises money for Democratic women who run for office.

    With her immense star power, vast network of supporters and donors and seasoned team of political advisers, the 59-year-old Clinton long has topped every national poll of potential Democratic contenders.
    But her controversial tenure as first lady left her a deeply polarizing figure among voters, leading many Democrats to doubt Clinton's viability in a general election.

    In a detailed statement posted on her Web site, Clinton sought to acknowledge and bat away such doubts.

    "I have never been afraid to stand up for what I believe in or to face down the Republican machine," she wrote. "After nearly $70 million spent against my campaigns in New York and two landslide wins, I can say I know how Washington Republicans think, how they operate and how to beat them."

    Recently, Clinton has clashed with many in her own party over the Iraq war.

    Clinton supported the 2002 resolution authorizing military intervention in Iraq. She has refused to recant her vote or call for a deadline for the removal of troops. She has announced her opposition to President Bush's troop increase in Iraq and has introduced legislation capping troop levels.

    "A woman candidate could find it easier to run in peacetime, rather than wartime, but Senator Clinton's tried to position herself as a serious person on national security," said Andrew Polsky, a presidential historian at Hunter College. "But that means she's staked out difficult position on the war that won't make it easy for her to get Democratic nomination."

    With a $14 million campaign treasury, Clinton starts with an impressive fundraising advantage over the rest of the Democratic field. But Obama has started to secure fundraising commitments from New York, California and other deep-pocketed, Clinton-friendly areas, pushing his New York colleague to accelerate her entry in the race.

    Her creation of a presidential exploratory committee, announced Saturday, allows her to raise money for the campaign; she already has lined up campaign staff.

    In tone and substance, Clintons' videotaped announcement recalled her first Senate race in New York in 2000, where she conducted a "listening tour" of the state's 62 counties before formally entering the contest.
    She promised a three-day series of Web chats with voters beginning Monday and prepared a campaign swing late this coming week through the early voting state of Iowa, while a visit to New Hampshire was in the works.


    On Sunday, New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson was also set to enter the Democratic field; if elected, he would be the first Hispanic president.
    For the short term at least, the outsized candidacies of Clinton and Obama were expected to soak up the lion's share of attention.
    Obama, who launched his own presidential committee on Tuesday, praised Clinton as a friend and colleague.

    "I welcome her and all the candidates, not as competitors, but as allies in the work of getting our country back on track," he said in a statement. Other Democratic contenders include former Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack; Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd; Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich, and former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards, the party's 2004 vice-presidential nominee. Delaware Sen. Joe Biden has said he will run and planned to formalize his intentions soon. Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry, the party's 2004 standard bearer, is also contemplating another run.

    An influential player in her husband's political career in Arkansas, Hillary Clinton leapt to the national scene during the 1992 presidential campaign when husband and wife fought to survive the scandal over Gennifer Flowers' allegations of a lengthy affair with Bill Clinton when he was the state's governor.


    The Clintons appeared together on CBS' "60 Minutes" to talk about their marriage — Hillary Clinton's first famous "Stand by Your Man" moment.
    As first lady, Clinton headed up a disastrous first-term effort to overhaul the health care insurance system. There was more controversy as the couple battled allegations of impropriety over land deals and fundraising, missing records from her former Arkansas law firm and even her quick and hefty profits from an investment in cattle futures.

    There was no letup in the second term. The president found himself denying — then admitting — having a sexual relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. As he battled impeachment and possible removal from office, his wife's poll numbers rose.

    Her own political career began to take shape in late 1998 when New York Democrat Daniel Patrick Moynihan announced he would not seek re-election to the Senate seat he had held since 1976.

    The campaign trail was not always friendly. For almost every cheer, there was a shouted "Go home, Hillary!" and the emerging Republican theme that carpetbagger Clinton simply wanted to use New York as a launching pad for a later presidential run.
    ___ Associated Press Writer Marc Humbert contributed to this report from Albany, N.Y.
    So, what do you people think now that she's running?

    Anyone who didn't know this would happen should slap themselves. Hard. Now.

    I'm not surprised at all. I've been doing some reading about her for the last year, getting to know what she has and has not supported in the past. Not quite sure if she'll get my vote, but you never know...

    I don't think the nation is willing to have a female president. So I hope she doesn't get made the Democrat's Candidate, simply because the Republicans would win by default.
    Ehhh, I dunno if I'll stick around. We'll see.

    You never know. No one thought women would even get suffrage. I think, if her ideas are good enough, then she might just have a chance.

    Also, people might think of her as the next Bill Clinton, as in, she would bring stability to the country, as he did.

    But yeah, I won't be able to vote in the 2008 election, but, whatever race, gender, or party affiliation the candidates have, I'm voting for the one who supports my ideas the best. In 2012.

    Vote for her? No. Not a chance.
    And it's not because she's a woman, no. I would vote for a woman for president, just as I would someone of a diffrent ethnic background. I just don't like Hillary at all. Unless the other candidate can somehow annoy me more, then no vote for Hillary.

    If Hillary makes it as President, I'm starting an Anti-Women Rights Campaign then pay a bunch of Muslims to beat up random Liberals. Then maybe I'll go to a Vegetarian Convention dressed in bloody slabs of deer meat. Who knows... we'll see.

    I wouldn't want her to be the candidate because Hilary Clinton is only out for Hilary Clinton, and sides with whomever will back her, and what fits and suits her needs best.

    She's not Bill, and if she were to be elected in to office, things would be a terrible mess.

    Also, I agree with the woman thing. Even if a worthy person (in this case, a woman) were to run, I would hope they won, but I know that there are too many people stuck in the dark ages in their ways of thinking, and would call heresy and condemn a female president.

    I can see it plausible that an assassination attempt would be coming Hilary's way should she make it that far. For the sake of her and her family, I hope it never comes to that.

    I don't care. You see, I don't hate any of our leaders, not even Bush. I don't agree with them either. I remain very indifferent about all world leaders. Why should I fret for things I have no control over? And when I'm old enough to vote, I think I'll just stay at home and please myself with tissue and porn.

    It was an attempt at trolling, however he failed at it. He must "gb24ailchan" and "lern2troll" better.
