It's official: Hillary Rodham Clinton is running for President of the United States of America.

After months---even years---of speculation, the former Secretary of State, senator, and First Lady announced that she will indeed seek the Democratic party's nomination for POTUS come next year. Mrs. Clinton revealed the news today through a video message on social media, where she outlines the central themes of her second bid for the White House and clearly states that she intends to aggressively fight for the White House.

Clinton is expected to travel to early-voting states including Iowa and New Hampshire in the coming weeks, where she will start making her case to voters---the girl power-advocate has also set up new campaign headquarters in Brooklyn, New York.

Watch her full announcement video below.
