Via the BBC: First lady in Argentina poll bid

Argentina’s first lady, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, has launched her campaign to become the country’s first elected woman president.

Mrs Kirchner promised change but also pledged to continue what she called the re-founding of the nation.

She announced her candidacy in July after President Nestor Kirchner said he would not be standing for re-election.

[…]

Mrs Kirchner does not like to be called “first lady”, preferring instead “first citizen”, the BBC’s Latin American affairs analyst Martin Murphy says.

She is a senator for the province of Buenos Aires and has her own political clout.

It is sort of the accelerated Clinton plan, I guess.
