Dear…Mrs. President?

This morning, Hilary Clinton officially announced her intentions to become a Democratic candidate for the presidency of the United States.


I keep reading that sentence, over and over, and every time I do, that’s what pops into my mind. Wow. I currently have CNN streaming while I type this. It’s interesting to hear different opinions about Clinton as a woman, senator, and possible president.

I think one of the coolest things, is the fact that she would, if elected, become the first female president of the United Sates of America hasn’t even been mentioned. As of this morning, the main discussion points are her timing of this announcement and her war policies.

First step, of course, is for her to be elected as the democratic candidate. The competition certainly isn’t lacking, so this hurdle is to be a high one. Yet as I watch the news coverage she’s being touted as “the Democratic frontrunner.”

Damn, girl, you go on with your bad self.

I’m not an American citizen, but that doesn’t stop my opinions about the subject, nor do I think my thoughts are unworthy. I have such mixed feelings about Clinton in the White house.

Is it going to come down to her being a woman? Is she going to be called a hormonal bitch when she makes unpopular decisions? Is her sex even going to be an issue?

What about the fact that she’s already lived 8 years in said White House? It’s certainly got to be an advantage to know the daily goings on…not to mention where the sliver wear is located. :p Okay, okay, kidding a little there.

But, in all seriousness, I’m super stoked to see where the next two years are going to bring Senator Hilary Clinton.

Dear Mrs. President indeed.
