Hillary Clinton Announces 2016 Presidential Bid

14 04 2015

It was no surprise that former Secretary of State, Senator, and First Lady Hillary Clinton announced her bid for the 2016 Presidential Election. What was a surprise, however, was the way in which she chose to (formally) announce it:

News organizations and political blogs have no shortage of opinions about every facet of her potential campaign and her past. Publications like The New York Times, Huffington Post, and Washington Post all say more or less the same thing: “We knew this was coming, and here are her challenges.”

But one of the more forthright characterizations of both the pre-announcement tone and supporters’ perspectives comes from The Onion:  “If you shitheads can just get in line, we can breeze through this whole campaign in 19 months and be done with it.”

Let the race begin.
