Could “Madam President” Be a Reality in 2016?

HIllary Clinton 1With all the chatter around the internet of a possible presidential run for Hillary Clinton in 2016, there has been a lot of talk about teaching our daughters to reach for what they want. Heck, if my daughter wanted to be President I would start paving the way today!

EMILY’s List has just announced its new program “Madam President” with the end goal being electing a woman president in 2016. According to the group’s research,  three-quarters of Americans believe a woman president would be a good thing!

I couldn’t agree more! I personally also think it is time things change! I mean, personally I would be a Hillary supporter, but that is totally beside the point!

As part of the project’s launch, the progressive women’s group produced a video of elementary school girls playing out the 2016 election. I couldn’t have been more happy to see that their effort is aimed at young ladies, as well as us “older” ones.

It goes to show there are so many women in America who truly are rooting for the first Madam President. This is truly something all of our daughters should be watching!

 If Hillary Clinton doesn’t run, is there a woman leader you think should toss her hat in the ring?
