It is official. Hillary Clinton will be running on the Democratic ticket for the 2016 Presidential election.
I personally have mixed feelings about Mrs. Clinton.
To hear the words “Madam President” would be a dream realized. The ultimate glass ceiling would be shattered. The work of generations of women would become reality.
If Mrs. Clinton was a newbie to politics, I would happily, heartily and openly announce that she is the candidate that I would be voting for come November 2016.
But the reality is that she has political baggage. Even if we put aside her record as Secretary Of State or as a Senator, there are still questions about her that linger from when her husband was President.
Only time will tell if Mrs. Clinton will be the first woman President Of the United States. But I have a feeling that it will be a long, brutal and bloody battle to the finish.
Until then, we have Saturday Night Live to speak what many cannot or will not say.
