WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Hillary Clinton jumped into the fray as a 2008 presidential candidate with the words "I'm in" posted on her Web site.
"And I'm in to win," she added in a statement, announcing she has set up an exploratory committee that can gauge opinions and raise money for a presidential campaign.
Clinton's announcement comes on the same day that the next president will be inaugurated two years down the road: January 20, 2009.

And if she's elected, we'll have either Bushes or Clintons in the White House for 24 years straight. Maybe 28.
Bad enough we only have two political parties with any chance of winning offices. Are we getting to the point that there are only two families that can aspire to be POTUS?
There's something about all of this that's just not right. America was never supposed to be run by dynasties, but that seems to be how everyone is voting, especially with Jeb Bush talking about long-term plans for a run in 2016.
Makes me wonder if the US really is going the way of the Roman Empire. Everyone has a say, but what they're all saying is that they no longer want to have a say.
