Today was the first time I have ever voted.
It struck me that this was a profound moment for me. For the first time ever, there was a woman on the ballot for President of the United States.
It gave me goose bumps. I know this is a very hotly contested race, but the fact remains, finally a woman is in the running for the top job.
Love her or hate her...she's has given us all a gift. Hillary Clinton is making it possible for the next qualified woman to run for this high office.
She has broken through a glass ceiling for future generations.
I don't understand why so many women get so angry with her...
Sure shes not perfect, sure she has some baggage, but what she has accomplished is open up the door for the next very perfect female to be elected President, if there is such a thing in the eyes of this country.
I believe that no matter what anyone's political affinity may be, this woman deserves respect for her very hard fought battle.
Just my humble opinion.
