Is Hillary Clinton the right person for office?

Lately in the media there have been numerous critics jumping in on this question. But what is all the fuss about?

Hillary is, by far, more than eligible for candidacy with a strong political background. From the beginning of her career as a successful lawyer to her time as the Secretary of State, Hillary has quite enough experience, perhaps more than any other candidate. With a potential strong, influential, platform on the wage gap, increasing taxes for the mega rich, and enforcing Wall Street accountability, Hillary is heading in the right direction. So why do these critics continue to claim it is not yet Hillary’s turn?

The media try to claim that it is partially due to her being first lady during Bill Clinton’s troubling time in the White House. What the media often fails to remember is that she is still human.

We all get angry, frustrated, sad, upset and any other emotion that could potentially be embarrassing. It is just human nature. How she behaved in her home during a difficult time in her life is no one’s business but her own. Others just cannot bear to see a woman in the White House. As a young female with interests in politics, I find this absolutely absurd.

Whether Hillary Clinton is the right person for the White House is up to the voters to decide. Who is the media to say whether she is or she isn’t the best candidate? I strongly encourage everyone to vote and let their voices be heard, no matter which candidate you choose.
