Hillary Clinton hit the ground running with her announcement to run for president.
When she confirmed via social media that she is going for the top job it was also the effectively the start of her campaign. She blended the two with some success.
Her fans were predictably delighted.
“It’s a good direction to go”, said one woman. “Not just men, men, men.”
“She’s awesome”, said another woman. “And she has the same beliefs that I have and things like that in policy so I’ll vote for her.”
The announcement had been expected and therefore came as no surprise. So far criticism seems to more concerned with her campaign logo than anything else.
Wikileaks say she has stolen their design.
A British newspaper reported that others think it looks like the Cuban flag, but that may just be a smart play to attract the Latino vote.
