WASHINGTON — Hillary Rodham Clinton says she's running for president.

The former first lady and secretary of state made her 2016 plans official on her campaign website Sunday.

She says in a video that "everyday Americans need a champion. I want to be that champion."

Clinton is aiming to be the first female president.

Clinton enters the Democratic primaries in a strong position to succeed her 2008 rival, President Barack Obama.

Following Sunday's announcement, she's expected to travel soon to early voting states, including Iowa and New Hampshire.

    She’s would make a terrible president, she failed as secretary of state and was a terrible senator and she is a habitual liar.

  • Tired of the Lying, Already!

    But wait! Obama is our champion, the leader of world peace, the most intelligent president, the most transparent administration, the most financially thrifty, America has ever had……My goodness, he turned out to be the opposite of all those claims. Sorry Hillary. The voters are tired of the same old progressive games that have been played by every president since Regan.

    According to Hillary, “America is strong when families are strong.” Except that if you work so hard that you find your way to the success ladder, she and her ilk will knock you right back down. Ready for Hillary? NO.
