HILARY CLINTON: BROKE HISTORY & THE GLASS CEILING

At this point and time in history, I don’t care what party you are affiliated with or which candidate you are rooting for the most; the mere fact that we all have now witnessed history and may actually see our first female president is pretty damn awesome.  Like Tupac said in one song “Change” that we aren’t ready to see a black president.  Well, now that we have seen this come to past and true, how many people have stated that they thought a woman president couldn’t or wouldn’t happen?  Barriers are being broken in this political theater, but yet we still have a long way to go before any kind of victory is planted.  I suppose the next best thing for us to see is a black woman nominee for president of the United States, but there is one trend that is bothersome.  The first black or African-American president came from the Democratic Party, and the first woman to be nominated to represent a major party is from the Democratic Party as well.  And, if the trend continues we may possibly see our first African-American woman president from the Democratic Party.  If you are following this trend you have to think to yourself of how does the Republican Party feel about this or how do they respond to such historic waves coming from the other side of the aisle?  Well, I only think time will tell before they can come up with a historic measurement themselves.  I don’t know of any Republican woman that can become what Hilary is becoming or follow in the same footsteps as to become a party nomination for president, but again time will tell.  Sure, the Republican party has had women run for the nomination, but they seem to be out of it before they can even make a dent or a challenge.  All in all we are in a historic moment for our nation and you have to be somewhat excited to know what else is next in the future.
