Hillary Clinton confirmed speculation of her running for the 2016 Presidential elections last Sunday. She released a nearly 3 minute video of hard working middle class Americans making plans to brighten their future.
The video features a diverse group of Americans including an African-American couple expecting a baby boy, a homosexual Caucasian couple preparing for marriage, and a blue collar middle- class man expressed his pride in being a hard working American . These individuals display excitement for their new journeys.
“I’m getting ready to do something too. I’m running for President,” said Clinton. Mrs. Clinton appears in from of a suburban home stating “Everyday Americans needs a champion, and I want to be that champion.” Mrs. Clinton is making the focus of her campaign completely about the voters and not herself, basically changing the focus of her first Presidential campaign in 2008.
Mrs. Clinton’s announcement on Sunday began her reintroduction to voters by hosting events in Iowa and New Hampshire. She will use them to lay out the central platform of her candidacy: improving the economic fortunes of the middle class, with an emphasis on increasing wages and reducing income inequality.
Clinton will face pressure from the progressive wing of her party to adopt a more populist economic message focused on income inequality. Some liberals remain skeptical of Clinton’s close ties to Wall Street donors and the centrist economic policies of her husband’s administration. They have urged her to back tougher financial regulations and tax increases on the wealthy.
2016 Presidential election gives Mrs. Clinton her possible final run for the White House, her supporters seem hopeful and ready for what is to come. For more information on Hillary Clinton’s campaign visit her campaign site: www.hillaryclinton.com
