Clinton Makes it Official in New Hampshire

It's official: Hillary will once again be appearing on the ballot in New Hampshire.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton filed for the New Hampshire primary on Monday, surrounded by hundreds of cheering supporters in a scene that's not completely unfamiliar to her.
This was actually Clinton's fourth time doing this ritual in Secretary of State Bill Gardner's office. She came in to file for her husband Bill Clinton's 1992 campaign, for his 1996 re-election campaign, and for her own 2008 campaign. When she arrived with her paperwork, Gardner pointed out a picture of her on the wall at a rally from her last run for the White House.
As each candidate walks through Gardner's office to file for the primary, they write a quick message and sign a "Notice to Voters" sheet. Clinton wrote "Fighting For Our Future" along with her signature.

In addition to several other firsts, New Hampshire in 2008 also made Clinton the first woman to ever win a presidential primary. And if the enthusiastic crowd at her signing was any indication, there might just be another New Hampshire win for her right around the corner.
