Not A Huge Surprise

Hillary Clinton will announce her candidacy this weekend.

A source with knowledge of Hillary Clinton’s plans has confirmed that she will officially announce her 2016 presidential bid on Saturday or Sunday. This will be imminently followed by campaign travel.

A spokesperson for Clinton’s campaign team did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Business Insider.

Clinton has long been expected to enter the 2016 race. Polls show her well ahead of all her likely Democratic and Republican rivals.

Okay, now the fun begins.

To be fair, she’s not the only Democrat making her move.  Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley has been testing the waters and just yesterday the former senator and governor from Rhode Island, Lincoln Chaffee, announced he’s forming an exploratory committee.  So it’s not like Ms. Clinton is going to be unchallenged.  But the odds are that she’s the Harlem Globetrotters and they’re the team that is put on the court so they have someone to run circles around.
