Hillary Makes It Official - Finally

The sun rose today and Hillary Clinton said she is running for President. Those two items are about equal on the level of either being big news, but I guess it is always news when a candidate makes it official.

Democratic Sen.Hillary Rodham Clinton entered the 2008 U.S. presidential race on Saturday with a swipe at President George W. Bush as she capped years of speculation about her White House ambitions.

In a message on her Web site, the former first lady, who aims to become the first woman elected U.S. president, wrote: "I'm in. And I'm in to win."

The second-term U.S. senator from New York is seen as the front-runner among five Democratic hopefuls, including Illinois Sen. Barack Obama (news, bio, voting record), who is expected to be her main competitor within the party and whose bid could make him the first black president. Former North Carolina Sen.John Edwards, the 2004 Democratic vice presidential nominee, is another candidate.

Taking the first step toward becoming a candidate for her party's nomination, Clinton announced plans for a presidential exploratory committee, which allows her to raise money and hire staff.
