Hillary Clinton has announced she’ll be running for president in the 2016 elections. This marks Clinton’s second bid, after playing coy about it last year. Last night, April 12, the 67-year-old former New York senator and Democratic party leader, and wife of former President Bill Clinton, announced the news on her website, hillaryclinton.com. Her Twitter later confirmed the news.
I’m running for president. Everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion. –H https://t.co/w8Hoe1pbtC

In a video message posted on her website, Clinton among several others, including a pregnant woman and her partner, express their hopes for the future.
“I’m getting ready to do something too — I’m running for president,” Clinton says. “Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times but the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top. Everyday Americans need a champion and I want to be that champion. So you can do more than just get by — you can get ahead and stay ahead because when families are strong, America is strong.
“So I’m hitting the road to earn your vote. Because it’s your time. And I hope you’ll join me on this journey.”
As you can imagine, it wasn’t long before the Twitterverse expressed their glee over Clinton’s bid … again. Hit the flip for celebrity reactions to Clinton’s bid below. Will you be voting for the former FLOTUS? Sound off in the comment section below.
