has already thrown her hat ...

The K-M-T will start its presidential candidate nomination process today.

Deputy Legislative Speaker Hung Hsiu-chu has already thrown her hat in the

ring.

But K-M-T Chairman Eric Chu has said he will not be seeking the nomination.

Other K-M-T heavyweights considered possible candidates include Vice

President Wu Dun-yi and Legislative Speaker Wang Jin-ping -- who has said he

will decide whether to seek the nomination before May 16-th.

The K-M-T has said the final candidate will be selected by a combination of

opinion polls and a vote by party members - that vote will be held in June

14-th.

請問上面這段新聞裡面的...has already thrown her hat in the ring.

是什麼意思?

    FYI,

    throw/toss your hat in the ring (American & Australian)to do something that makes it clear you want to compete with other people, especially to compete for a political position She's seriously considering throwing her hat in the ring and declaring herself a candidate for the election.

    請參考:http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/throw-your-hat-...

    19世紀初期,在美國拳擊賽場旁看打鬥的年輕人,若是自己想要進入場內一展身手,就把帽子丟進場內。可能是因為場外人聲沸騰,光靠嘴巴喊叫沒有用 -- 把帽子丟進場內,大家就知道你要加入戰局了:-)

    You need to get a hat. It's status. It's fashion. It's your ticket to get in a fight. Get a red hat, that'll show them you're serious about the fight, and will show no mercy.

    Get a big hat, so if you need to collect money, you are already ahead of the game.

    What if I don't have a hat? Can I throw in my towel? Or may be a napkin?
