9 Celeb Hillary Clinton Supporters Who You Had No Idea Were Fans Of The Potential Future POTUS
Is she or isn't she? (Running for president, that is.) After months of Hillary Clinton not really answering the question on everyone's minds, Americans can finally expect to hear an answer. Reportedly, Hillary Clinton will announce her run for presidency in the 2016 election on Sunday, April 12.
It has been a been a topic of heavy speculation for a long time. In fact, people were talking about the concept of Clinton trying a 2016 run not long after current President Barack Obama was reelected back in 2012. It makes sense, especially since she did try to run for the position back in 2008 and was actually considered by many to be the frontrunner for the Democratic ticket before Obama entered the race.
Of course, Clinton already continues to have a large and loyal following of supporters who are ready for her to take charge of the White House. And her fans come from a variety of walks of life, some being celebrities. And it looks like Clinton has already pulled in a decent amount of nods from Hollywood.
