Well, she finally did it! Senator Hilary Clinton announced her candidacy for president of the United States. It wasn’t a surprise by any stretch of the imagination, everyone knew she would. The latest poll showing her way ahead of all of the other candidates in Democrats eyes would also indicate that most Democrats wanted her to do just that. She was at 41%, while her nearest competitor (Obama) was in the teens.
I am so looking forward to the debates and the campaign trail this year. I can’t wait to see this strong and capable woman show the world that not only is the United States ready for a woman in the White House, we have one who has more to bring to the table than just being female. Senator Clinton is a savvy politician, and she knows what it takes to win an election. She won’t be easily intimidated and because of previous campaigns and her high profile life, most of us have already had the chance to see what’s in her closet and put it to rest.
There’s no doubt that I’ll vote for whatever candidate that the Democrats put forward for president. I won’t vote for a republican, and I won’t waste my vote on a candidate that has no chance to win. Now more than ever we need our votes to count, and seeing a Democrat in the White House is a major step toward equality for us. I’ll vote for a Democrat in November, but I sure hope that Democrat will be Clinton. I’m ready to have a woman lead this country. Women have been underrepresented in top political positions for far too long, and it’s about time that we stepped out of the wings and onto the stage.
