hillary clinton says he is also prepared to answer why. her campaign today rolled out the beginning of her run for president. she was also outside of her campaign headquarters in brooklyn, new york this afternoon. i don't know dickerson will be here in just a moment with analysis but we begin with nancy cordes on the ground in iowa. >> i am getting ready for a long lot of things. >> clinton .. isn't the first to speak in her announcement video or the second the third or the fourth. >> my daughter is about to start kindergarten next year. >> i am getting married this summer. and what i really care about. instead we hear from young parents. a factory worker, a college student, folks with big plans for the future. >> >> clinton makes her first appearance about a minute and a half in. >> i am getting ready to do something too. i am running for president. >> every day americans need a champion and i want to be that champion. >> the video reflects a philosophy laid out in a clinton
campaign mission statement obtained by cbs news. >> we are humble it reads we take nothing for granted. >> i am hitting the road to earn your vote. because it is your time. and i hope you will join me on this journey. >> she will journey first to iowa. >> where she came in a humbling third place in the 2008 caucus despite her front runner status. >> i congratulate senator obama and senator edwards. >> today republicans were ready for hillary too presidential hopefuls immediate i began fund-raising off of her announcement, kentucky senator rand paul's website began selling anti-hillary gear. >> and this new ad starts airing in four early voting states, including iowa tomorrow. >> hillary clinton represents the worse of the washington machine. >> the president will hold a round table event with some community college students here on tuesday and then they will visit a small agricultural business on wednesday. her campaign says he is going to
be in a rampup phase jeff, over the next six to eight weeks and hold her first true rally some time in may. >> glor: nancy in the mean time the idea is to keep these event small? >> reporter: that is correct. an it is clear that her campaign feels that they need to do the best he can project an image that is something other than the inevitable democratic nominee, even though that is most likely what she is. they also believe as republicans do that this election is going to be first and foremost about the middle class and whoever shows that they can connect with the middle class and understand understands their problems is going to have a huge advantage in the general election. >> glor: nancy cordes, thank you very much. for more let's bring in cbs political commentary john dickerson whose title is being adjusted first congratulations okay been named bob schieffer's replacement on face the nation, we are so happy for you. >> thank you very jeff. >> glor: busy political day in more ways than one.
in your estimation what is her biggest challenge. her biggest challenge is the why are you running challenge? which is giving an answer that is a rationale for her campaign that's a challenge for any candidate but for her in particular because all of her opponent and pundits in history have been trying to write that answer in for her. so they will say it is the third term of barack obama or just doing it because she thinks she is the inevitable next choice. and also she has to answer that question because regular voters need to know why they want to connect with her and how they can connect with her. so she has to give them an answer to that question. >> glor: and john, if she is to win the nomination and eventually the presidency you are talking about maintaining some sort of very strong clip of momentum for 18 months. >> that is a big challenge for the campaign and it's a challenge both to not get started too fast. they want it to be kind of a slow rollout, not something that is full of massive crowds and kind of an overwhelming blast at the beginning, so can they modulate that at the outset?
but then once the campaign gets going, how to sustain momentum? how to sustain passion with voters, all the way through that long period of time, because hillary clinton will be facing all kinds of distractions in just trying to keep the campaign on the rails when she is being attacked from so many different quarters would be a a big challenge she will pace more than any other candidate. >> glor: on to the republican side, it is a wide and deep field. different candidate are going to say different things but is there one sort of universal attack point that is has emerged so far we are going to hear more against hillary clinton? >> i think one of the words you will hear and being the, reince priebus said this on "face the nation" today, hillary clinton has this has this air of inevitability about her, what they are trying to hang on hillary clinton is this idea that she thinks it is just hers for the asking. and that is why the entire clinton thrust of this announcement will be to show he is going to work hard for the nomination, she takes nothing for granted, she is going to sweat it out because of how she runs her campaign can be a proxy
for the kind of effort and passion she will put into the presidency. that's what they hope, anyway. >> glor: john dickerson thank you so much and 15 congratulations will. >> thanks so much, jeff. >> glor: republican senator marco rubio is expected to announce in miami tomorrow that he is running for president the 43-year-old freshman senator from florida joined fellow senators ted cruz of texas and rand paul of kentucky as the first republicans officially in this race. >> there has been a another fatal shooting of an unarmed black man by a white police officer, and this case happened in tulsa and don dahler has the video. it is a luger, it is a luger. >> convicted felon courtney harris was the target of an undercover drug and gun sting operation last thursday when he saw police vehicles pull up he ran. >> stop right there stop right there. >> a pursuing officer wearing a body camera chased down and tackled harris.

breath. >> harris was taken to a hospital where he died. bates is not allowed to perform any police activities while an investigation is ongoing. >> the tulsa county sheriff's office blames bates's mistake on a phenomenon calls slips and capture. the police sergeant leading the investigation says that's when a person's behavior slips off the intended course of action because it is captured by a stronger response. jeff prosecutors are now reviewing the case. >> glor: don dahler, thank you very much. >> one student is dead at a kenyan university after an explosion was miss 16 for a mistaken for a terror activity, the university of the student in a university in nairobi heard allowed dawn right before dawn. >> 141 people were injured in the stampede to escape, the student who died reportedly jumped from a fifth floor window, the noise turned out to be an electrical explosion. >> turkey has taken offense to remarks made by pope francis today. speaking at st. peter's basilica the pope called the massacre of
