Hillary Clinton is about to make history. The former Secretary of State officially announced her second presidential bid Sunday, making her the runaway favorite to land the Democratic nomination when the race gets underway next year. Assuming she does win, Clinton will become the first woman ever to capture a major party’s nomination.

The announcement comes on the heels of last night's laugh-out-loud SNL sketch, which saw Kate McKinnon as Clinton pretty much spelling out next year's election for us. "Citizens! You will elect me! I will be your leader!" she said before welcoming Darrell Hammond, who reprised his legendary Bill Clinton impersonation. And with Clinton's campaign set to be one of the most expensive ever — with over $2.5 billion expected to be raised — McKinnon and Hammond should have more than enough material to last them well into 2016.
