New York's Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton announced her candidacy for the 2008 Presidential elections on Jan. 20.

The news was posted on Saturday morning on Clinton's campaign web site. "I'm in and I'm in to win," Clinton stated, also asserting her intentions to check the Bush administration's power through her remaining Senatorial term.

Political strategists believe the timing of her announcement just before President Bush's State of the Union address will set her apart as a sharp contrast to the current administration. "Only a new president will be able to undo Bush's mistakes and restore our hope and optimism," Clinton wrote on her web site.

Clinton's campaign officials believe the prospect of becoming the first female president will lend her campaign extra excitement and allure.
