New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton said she’s getting into the presidential race "to win." 

The Democrat announced on her Web site Saturday morning that she’s opening a presidential exploratory committee.

It comes just days after Illinois Sen. Barack Obama announced his plans to also form an exploratory committee. 

The former First Lady is considered the front-runner with Obama and 2004 vice presidential nominee John Edwards in what’s shaping up to become a crowded field.

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson intends to announce his plans Sunday.

In a videotaped message, Clinton invites voters to begin a dialogue with her on the major issues — health care, Social Security and Medicare, and the war in Iraq. 

She said she plans to host live online video chats with voters beginning Monday.
