Can She Win?

Former US Secretary of State, Senator and First Lady Hillary Clinton formally announced that she is going to run for the White House. This is her second bid to become the first woman US president.

In other news, the sky is blue and water is wet.

Come on people; how in the world is her run for the White House “news”? Ever since she ran and lost to current US President Barack Obama in 2008, another run for the White House was always on the cards. Even right now, she is the overwhelming Democratic favorite

News is not whether she would run, but if she would win. I don’t know what the mood is in America, but from the outside looking in, I have to wonder if she could. Despite what some people say, I’m not sure about her. She managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory (she was an overwhelming favorite against Obama) in 2008 and she didn’t really had a good time as Secretary of State.

So the fact that Mrs. Clinton is running isn’t “news”, that was always going to happen. How she would fare as a candidate and whether she can win would be.
