Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton will embark on a widely anticipated campaign for the White House Saturday, a former first lady intent on becoming the nation's first female president

Clinton was expected to disclose plans to form a presidential exploratory committee on her Web site, according to Democratic officials familiar with the matter.

Yeah, some women will vote for her because she's a woman...

However, if she wants to run for president she's going to have to start appearing on shows she wouldn't normally appear on....

Sorry, but going on the Today show/Oprah isn't going to reach people who are undecided and have jobs....

I left the board 6/04/96 after being told I couldn't comment on a koolaid drinking, Bushbot posting.

I've only returned to post this comment.

Look for Hillary to win.

I'm done with the Republican trojan horse party. The Republicans are NOT conservative, NOT pro-life, NOT in favor of shrinking the central government, NOT in favor of permanently lowering taxes. NOT anything BUT a Socialist/Commie lite version of the Democrat party.

I want a new party.

fire away koolaid drinkers (but only to yourselves because I'm not returning to read the bushbot comments)
