Hillary to file

From NBC's Elizabeth Wilner
Sen. Hillary Clinton (D) plans to post a statement on her website today announcing her plans to file a presidential exploratory committee for 2008.  The timing of the actual filing is TBD.  Clinton's announcement comes just days after Sen. Barack Obama (D) filed his exploratory committee, making him the first African-American candidate with a real shot at winning the presidency.  New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson (D), who is expected to announce his intentions this month, would become the first serious Latino candidate for the White House.
