Hillary Clinton

You don't change Presidents in the middle of a war, or so the old saying goes. In the next Presidential election, we won't have any choice, assuming the war doesn't end before that time. There are no signs suggesting this might happen.

Over the weekend, Hillary Clinton threw her hat into the ring. And I've been asking myself all weekend, is America ready for a female President? Recently, we saw Nancy Pelosi become the first female Speaker of the House of Representatives. But with a war going on, it is really hard to tell if the American public would be receptive to a female Commander in Chief. Recent polls are showing America is tired of the war, and that Iraq is the single issue with the highest importance. Therefore, if she has any hope of winning, she will need to have an outstanding plan for Iraq.
