Hillary's In, And The World Reacts

It's official
It's official

Hillary Rodham Clinton's Sunday announcement that she's running in the 2016 presidential race, her second bid to become the first female U.S. president, drew news coverage from around the world, with one German newspaper even using the English headline, "The Very First Lady."

Via a short video (watch below) on her campaign website, the former First Lady and ex-Secretary of State made her long-expected candidacy official, seven years after losing the Democratic Party nomination to Barack Obama.

Here's how newspapers in the United States and around the world reacted to the news:
