BBC News with Julie Candler.

Hillary Clinton is to launch her bid to become the first female President of the United States on Sunday. The former Secretary of State is expected to use a video posted on the Internet to announce that she's seeking the Democratic Party's nomination for next year's election. Nick Bryant reports from Washington.“Ordinarily, presidential candidates launch their campaigns in front of adoring crowds in a blaze of red, white and blue. But Hillary Clinton will offer a less rather montage, a video posted online and promoted on social media. Then it's believed she'll head to Iowa and New Hampshire to meet individual voters in fairly intimate settings, rather than the usual rallies. It's a deliberately low-key, even humble start, choreographed to avoid the sense of entitlements that bedaubed her campaign in 2008.”

周日,希拉里·克林顿开启了成为美国历史上第一位女性总统的竞选序幕。这位前美国国务卿通过从网上上传的一段视频,希望能在明年的选举中得到民主党的提名。尼克·布莱恩特华盛顿为您报道。“通常而言,总统竞选者应该在身披美国国旗支持自己的民众前发表竞选演讲。但是希拉里·克林顿仅仅通过剪辑一段视频传到网上,来引起社会媒体的广泛关注。与集会不同的是,她将前往爱荷华州和新罕布什尔与少数选民近距离接触。这一低调甚至谦卑的开始,是出于精心安排,以避免重蹈她在2008年大选时高调竞选失败的覆辙。
