[Photo/IC]Hillary Clinton has officially announced her decision to run in the 2016 presidential election, which has aroused heated discussions not just in the United States but around the world. Comments:A strong female politician, Clinton has gained fame and position with her political ability and she is considered the most experienced and best prepared candidate so far for the 2016 US election. However, US citizens might still consider her gender and her age before deciding whether to vote for her. Will they accept a 68-year-old female president in the White House? The idea of a middle-aged male president is still deeply rooted in many US citizens minds; is it easy to change?

Yu Wanli, a senior expert on China-US relations, April 13
Watch the video of Clinton and you will see her strong personal style: she is good at grand narratives and delivering official speeches, which she has learned from her political experiences. However, she needs to learn to chat with the voters and let them know she is hearing them and she cares for them. That way of talking might be hard for her, but she needs it because upon it hangs her political future.
