After a long wait and speculation Hillary Clinton anticlimactically announced her bid Sunday for the Democrat nomination for president in 2016.
The former secretary of state used email, YouTube and Twitter to make the announcement — not bad for a woman who claimed she couldn’t handle two email addresses. (That claim prompted one of the more succinct Twitter comments: “You’re delusional if you think anyone trusts you after the email debacle.”)
In her campaign ad released on YouTube, Clinton shows a series of citizens, from a gay couple to immigrants, telling personal stories of what they are “getting ready for” before she makes her announcement.
“I’m getting ready to do something too,” she said. “I’m running for president.”
Clinton, the multi-millionaire, went on to talk about how the economic deck is “stacked in favor of those at the top.”
“I’m hitting the road to earn your vote,” she said. “Because it’s your time and I hope you’ll join me on this journey.”
The Twitterverse quickly jumped on the announcement with snark and scorn.
I’m running for president. Everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion. –H https://t.co/w8Hoe1pbtC

@HillaryClinton you won’t have my vote. Could you at least have enough courage to tell us the truth about Benghazi?

Remember when #Hillary discovered the vast right wing conspiracy against her husband? Those nutty right-wingers believed he had an affair!
