(Newser) – Hillary Clinton says she hopes the US will have a female president in her lifetime because it would send "exactly the right historic signal" to women and girls as well as men and boys. And, yes, she used the phrase "hypothetically speaking." The former secretary of state told a women's conference in Toronto last night she will "certainly vote for the right woman to be president." She says it "depends on women stepping up and subjecting themselves to the political process."

NO! NO!! NO!!!!!!! We don't need any president just to check off a bullet item on a list. We need a president willing to serve his constituents, not some lobby, not some special interest group, but serve the citizens of the US.

We should have a president that serve the citizens. It doesn't matter what color of skin they have, or what gender they are. Right now, we have a POS that doesn't serve citizens, but rather illegals and radicals. Hillary is an Obama clone and will not serve American citizens. You had a chance to elect someone who could make our country a better place, but you wanted freebees instead. You must be a rascist.
