Kind of strange to enter the race on a Saturday, especially since she’s not supposed to be on any of the Sunday shows tomorrow, but maybe there’s a reason for it.
Her entrance video is here.
Interesting that the video is different from her statement on her website.
I’m in. And I’m in to win.
Today I am announcing that I will form an exploratory committee to run for president.
And I want you to join me not just for the campaign but for a conversation about the future of our country — about the bold but practical changes we need to overcome six years of Bush administration failures.
I am going to take this conversation directly to the people of America, and I’m starting by inviting all of you to join me in a series of web chats over the next few days.
The stakes will be high when America chooses a new president in 2008.
As a senator, I will spend two years doing everything in my power to limit the damage George W. Bush can do. But only a new president will be able to undo Bush’s mistakes and restore our hope and optimism.
She’s talking about having town hall meetings where she can “have a conversation” with all of us.
No matter where you live, no matter what your political views, I want you to be a part of this important conversation right at the start. So to begin, I’m going to spend the next several days answering your questions in a series of live video web discussions. Starting Monday, January 22, at 7 p.m. EST for three nights in a row, I’ll sit down to answer your questions about how we can work together for a better future. And you can participate live at my website. Sign up to join the conversation here.
Maybe polls like this one from Zogby are starting to scare her.
So that puts those who have formed committees at Dodd, Vilsack, Biden, Kucinich, Obama, Edwards, Clinton, Gravel, and Richardson about to announce soon on the dem side, and only Brownback Romney, and Tancredo on the Repub side….
this is going to get very crowded very quickly….Rudy, McCain, Huckabee, Kerry, Sharpton, Gore (?), Gingrich, all likely to join……
