The international trouser-suit movement will get a high-profile push tonight as Hillary Clinton announces her bid to become President of the United States.
Perfect time so for Paddy to remind you of the odds for the 2016 contest.
At 11/10 Hillary Clinton (67), rates as a 48% chance to become the next President, with the nearest challenger, Jeb Bush, priced at 4/1.

Clinton is unsurprisingly odds-on to secure the Democrat nomination but the Republican nomination is a much more open contest. Jeb Bush is the 2/1 favourite here, with Scott Walker at 7/2 and Marco Rubio at 9/2 heading the chasing pack.
Barack Obama has already rowed in behind Hillary saying ‘she’d be an excellent president’. If she does win the White House next year, it’d mark 25 years since her husband declared his intention to run for president, back in 1991.
Hillary Clinton would become not just the first women to capture a major party’s nomination, but of course also the first female president.
