Hillary Clinton launching presidential campaign in New York City?

By Elizabeth Wagmeister
Hollywood Life

It appears Hillary Clinton has launched her 2016 presidential campaign. HollywoodLife.com can exclusively report that Hillary has leased office space on a high-level floor of a corporate New York City office building, overlooking Times Square, for what sources are saying, is her campaign headquarters.

It seems likely that the former First Lady of the United States, 66, will announce her presidential run shortly, since she is expected to fully move into the space, the week of August 11.

Hillary was sighted more than once visiting the unoccupied open plan space with her security detail. An elevator was blocked off for her use.

A source tells HollywoodLife.com that Hillary has signed a two-year lease. If you're not doing the math, that adds up to the year 2016.

Her expansive new space includes nine offices, 14 workstations, one large conference room, and features modern finishes and white walls. It also features floor-to-ceiling glass doors, and windows with sweeping views of Times Square.

Until now, Hillary has remained mum about her decision to throw her hat in the ring. When asked about her plans by Barbara Walters in December 2013, she replied that she would deliberate on her potential campaign plans "next year" - in other words, in 2014.

Hillary has expressed her concern about being able to combine her roles, as a potential President and a grandmother. However, on June 9, she told Diane Sawyer with ABC News, "I'm thrilled about becoming a grandmother in the fall. I have lots of hopes-for what that means-to me and my family. I mean, we have one life to live. This is...this is it. It's not a dress rehearsal."

Just last month, Bill Clinton told CNN that Hillary "really does need some time to think through this" decision to run for President. He said that on July 21, but she must have thought very quickly after that!

Ironically, the building that Hillary is moving into is owned by a Republican supporter, though his brother is a well known Democrat. If she's a good tenant, maybe she'll be able to lobby for his support!

Every leftist, unionist, liberal-progressive, devotee of identity-politics, homosexual, liberal arts university professor, mainline Protestant clergyman, and social parasite will vote for this woman, and that will put her over the top. Unless she goes to prison for her role in Benghazi, as she should!

She must really think that there are a lot of simple minded people out there that would give her a vote.

her only experience she had to become senator was the pitty New Yorkers had on her because her husband got ******** from that little girl (don't care how many times he called her a woman) and as a senator she accomplished very little than wasting the senates time on stupid bills like spending tax payer money to build a memorial for woodstock and as secretary of state which she got in a deal her perverted husband worked out with the idiot we got running the country now and in this job she actually accomplished less unless you count bengazi an accomplishment
