What’s the 11th item on your bucket list?
I made a post for a bucket list of mine sometime last year. The list isn’t numbered but the eleventh item listed (not technically by importance) is:
- Write a letter to the President of the United States
Okay, so I may have been joking when I put this down, because, seriously, what low-Earth citizen wouldn’t dream of writing (or emailing, Skyping, or livestreaming) a personal message to the most powerful man in the western world? Or you can just be Kid President or any popular YouTuber and meet him (or her).
The next president of the United States is looking more and more like it may be a woman. It is no longer a mere possibility now but a strong one. Hillary Clinton, while she may be pushing seventy, is about the only person in the pool of potential, but unlikely, candidates, that has any legitimate shot at giving the Oath on January 20, 2017. I’m not really that into politics and this post is going to be mostly fluff, but she probably has the most experience in politics out of everyone, especially Donald Trump who is actually deliberately trying to extinguish his chances at becoming the 45th, but still leading the polls somehow. Because Hillary already has the experience of being a First Lady and being beside Bill Clinton, familiarity and public confidence will play a role in her winning this coming November. Never mind that an article I found on RedState basically gives great reasons why she is too old to run, I just want to see the best person win, and a change of gender for a change.
If I were to write a letter to the future president Hillary Rodham Clinton (let’s just assume), the first thing I would ask her is how it feels like to have power than your husband for a change (not that she always has, but it’s more apparent now). I would also ask what sort of changes she will be striving to make (but not with all the strings of false hope attached as with Mr. Obama).
