Hillary Clinton is one step closer to running for president in 2016 officially.
According to Hollywood Life, the former Secretary of State has leased office space in New York, and sources say that this is where her campaign headquarters will be. The 66-year-old wife of Bill Clinton is expected to make an announcement soon, as she and her team will be moving into the spacious high-rise office space next week. Sources say that the space — that overlooks Times Square — is the location that Hillary has chosen after visiting a couple of times.
“Hillary was sighted more than once visiting the unoccupied open plan space with her security detail. An elevator was blocked off for her use.”
Hillary Clinton has not confirmed if she will run for president in 2016, but if she takes this all the way? She will be the first female president. While Alaska’s former governor, Sarah Palin, came close to running, she never did (she was on the John McCain ticket back in 2008 as Vice President). Mrs. Clinton has a long road ahead of her, but now is around the time that she should start campaigning and making a serious political move. Of course, starting out with office space — and a lot of it — is definitely a step in that direction.
“Her expansive new space includes nine offices, 14 workstations, one large conference room, and features modern finishes and white walls.”
Hillary Clinton has been rumored to run for president in 2016 for years. If she does make an announcement, most people will not be surprised. Of course that doesn’t mean that Hillary’s name will go straight to the presidential polls… there are quite a few hurdles that she’s going to need to get over first. In order for her to become the official Democratic candidate, she will need to prove herself in order to earn the official nomination.
According to Ballotpedia, other rumored Democratic hopefuls that Clinton may have to go head-to-head with include Vice President Joe Biden, Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, and Governor of Maryland, Martin O’Malley (to name a few). Rumored Republican hopefuls include Governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie, Florida Senator, Marco Rubio, and Kentucky Senator, Rand Paul.
Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign will pick up speed over the next six to twelve months. Some say that whoever she chooses as her running mate could make or break her chances of moving back into the White House.
In other presidential campaign news, Mitt Romney (R) could run again even though he has said that he doesn’t have plans to. According to The Inquisitr, Romney has already been a part of the Republican campaign… hitting the trail last month with Chris Christie and Asa Hutchinson in Arkansas. Many hope that Romney changes his mind and runs for president in 2016. Do you?
Is Hillary Clinton a good choice for the Democratic nomination? Why or why not?
