Does Hillary Clinton have What it Takes?

As the 2016 Presidential election approaches, candidates from all over the US are making themselves known to the public, Jeb Bush, Rand Paul, and even Ted Cruz. Campaigns are being created to highlight their individual goals and intentions for the country, what should be changed and why it needs to be changed. Many will choose a candidate based on their political parties, though with the changes current President Barak Obama has made during his presidency, some may not be as loyal to their parties as they once were. As Americans, we have the right to choose who we think will be the best qualified for our next Commander and Chief, the problem is, who do we think is actually right for the job?

Taking a look at the female Democratic candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton, we see a fireball ready to take charge and take a stand for the average American.

Clinton was raised in a middle class family in Chicago, Illinois. Her father, Hugh, a Navy vet of WWII was a small business owner where he designed, printed and sold draperies. Life was tricky as it is for any small business owner, but it was rewarding as hard work was learned at a young age for Clinton. To get what you want, you have to work for it. After graduating from Wellesley College, Clinton then went on to Yale Law School, where she fell in love with future husband and former President, Bill Clinton.

Later, Clinton served as a lawyer for the Congressional Committee that investigated President Nixon, giving her a little taste of the world of politics. She eventually moved to Arkansas where she became a law professor, running legal offices that represented the lower class.

According to her website, “It’s this commitment to public service and fighting for others—especially children and families—that she’s carried all her life.

Bill Clinton was first elected President in 1992 and was then re-elected four years later for the 1994 elections. As the First Lady, Clinton was deeply involved with health care, on a mission to ensure that families would have coverage at a reasonable price. In 1995, against advisories by her officials, Clinton led the US delegation to Beijing for the UN Fourth World Conference on Women. Her speech was not only a radical influence for women, but opened doors for women’s rights.

With this in mind, Clinton kicked open her own door and became the first female to be elected into the US Senate after she became senator of New York. She ran her first Presidential campaign in 2008 against current President, Barak Obama. After losing the election, Obama appointed her the high seat of Madam Secretary, which she effectively upheld until 2013. Now in 2015, she fights a second time for the office of the President.

Opinions are skewed about Clinton, as some adore her and others prosecute her. Scandal has already broken out against her name before she announced her candidacy. During her time as Secretary of State, she used her personal email account about state matters which could have put national security at risk, should she have been hacked.

According to Business Insider, the Republican Party has been poking fun at Clinton by sending out her hard drive files. “A little reminder from the RNC that Hillary Clinton still hasn’t answered legitimate questions or handed over her secret server to an independent party,” the drive’s note reads. “Here’s a courtesy thumb drive — make sure to save any emails from the Clinton campaign before she wipes another server clean.”

Senator Rand Paul, the Republican candidate is selling copies of her hard drive along with other humorous merchandise to defeat Clinton in the public’s eye. He has released several Tweets via Twitter publically criticizing her.

The big question on everyone’s mind is whether or not Clinton has what it takes to sit in the high chair as leader of the free world. Running against Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and Jeb Bush, Clinton will face the fight of a lifetime.
