I can see it now.
November 8, 2016, Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton will be elected as the 45th president of the United States.
We have to realize that we are not only voting for our next Commander in Chief, but also the direction of the future of America. Other than Hillary Clinton, there is no other candidate qualified for the job.
To uphold the legacy of Obama, new ideas and trends, we need a person with pizzazz, strength, finesse and most importantly, experience that we can only get from someone like Mrs. Clinton.
Her resume includes serving as former secretary of state, U.S. senator, first lady and knowing a thing or two about foreign policy since she has traveled to 112 countries, according to CNN.
Hillary’s Facebook bio includes wife, mother, grandmother, dog lover and a lifetime advocate for human issues, especially women and families.
Mrs. Clinton plans to put a handle on gun violence, secure an economy so that middle class Americans can get ahead and maintain sustainability, and to generate renewable energy for every home in the U.S. within 10 years for her term, according to hillaryclinton.com.
What I found exciting was her College Compact, which would ensure students the ability to attend a four-year college without taking loans for tuition, as well as attend community college tuition-free.
That would be a relief for us all.
Currently, we are all still recovering from the Great Recession of 2007-2009, trying to build our economy up and get steady pay employment for all.
More than ever, we need stability from our government, and I believe Hillary Clinton has been alongside our president to ensure just that. I do not think the other candidates can offer this.
Senator Bernie Sanders is a nice guy and does make valid points; I just do not think he is prepared to lead the country.
To me he is selling dreams, comes off as too much of a liberal and does not have the backing and support from the right people needed to run in office effectively.
I think of him as a good dream or a wish; Hillary can actually make it happen.
As far as the conservatives go, let’s face it, this country runs a lot smoother when a Democrat is in charge
Our country cannot afford another Republican in office, and most definitely not Trump. He appeals to some, but is a hindrance to most of us.
Remember, he wants to build a wall, and I just cannot see how that will better the beauty of the melting pot we live in.
What Clinton offers is every little girl’s dream: You can be whoever you want to be when you grow up, even the president of the United States. She’s authentic in my eyes, and a human being.
Not to dwell on her past and the controversy of her marriage to former President Bill Clinton, but she endured a lot—she stood by her husband, which shows me that she is committed and unshakable.
That my friends, is just the glimpse of the strength of a woman and why we should all vote for her.
I feel comforted in knowing that with Clinton as our leader, our future will be a little brighter.
