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.
