Hillary was and still remains to be a very active and involved politician of our time, being the First Lady of the United States during the two terms that Bill was president, being Senator of New York for eight years, and now currently being our 67th Secretary of State. As a very motivated Lady of State, and later First Lady, she made many valiant efforts to create solutions for the issues that had arisen during the time which she was in position. Her passion to get involved, her wise decision making, and her charismatic ways have definitely made her a politician that won’t be forgotten.

Is Ambition the key to power?The classic Shakespearean play "Macbeth" resonates many themes and concepts that relate to modern times. Today, readers will be able to relate concepts, such as 'Ambition' which is still represented in some of today's most famous and important people. One of these people is Mrs. Hillary Rodham Clinton, wife of former President of the United States, Bill Clinton. Evidence has revealed that the senator for New York shows close similarities to the character Lady Macbeth from William Shakespeare's Macbeth, a strong ambitious woman that accomplishes many tasks purely for her own needs. Is Hilary blinded by her own ambition for the presidency? Will she exceed her own

” (Clinton, 2008, para. 3). I presume her purpose was to set aside her and all her followers’ emotions of losing to Barack and to try and unit her and Barack’s supporters together. She showed full support for Barack Obama and wanted her supporters to do the same. I felt this was accomplished by expressing to everyone that now the campaigning is over it all boils down to backing the Democratic Party as a whole, and not just as a Hilary Clinton supporter. Americans did feel that even given the surroundings and her so recent lose to Barack; Hilary was very thoughtful and well-spoken for the Democratic Party.

Final- Comparative study on Agrippina the Younger and Hilary ClintonAgrippina the Younger, daughter to the favoured Germanicus and Agrippina the Elder, and Hilary Rodham Clinton, former First Lady of the United States, shared similar backgrounds and exerted a similar degree of influence over the political decisions employed by the men in their lives. Both were also equally instrumental in breaking traditional ideals of women and emerged as powerful figures in their own right. Born in 15AD, Agrippina led an early life of turbulence and misfortune. It was during this time that she witnessed the deaths of many of her family members and was also subjected to malevolence from her brother

At the core of one of the most powerful countries in the world rests a simple dream. Although this dream is almost 300 years old since its birth in the Declaration of Independence of 1776, it still puts a hunger in the eyes of the American people. This American dream was realized by Hillary Clinton, a woman who was able to take a lifetime and achieve spiritual, moral and materialistic happiness.Hillary Clinton arrived at this materialistic happiness when she broke the invisible barriers of a political career predominantly run by men and become the first women ever to be elected as the First Lady in the United States of America.

Currently, contests are closely divided in the hunt for the 2,025 delegates needed for the nomination with so far: 1,262 for Obama and 1,213 for Clinton.

Family and Medical Leave Act was passed in 1993 as a official law saying that an employees must have up to 12 weeks per year of unpaid medical leave to take care their sick family members. Clinton's goal was to have a substantial National Heath Plan, which was being drafted by a committee led by Hilary Clinton, Bill's wife. Again, Clinton worked very hard for his dream of universal heath care, but because of high opposition of the Congress, finally Clinton had to give up his fight. Although, he did not achieve a nation wide heath plan but he was

Throughout time, women have acted radically and drastically in order to be heard, have a voice, and be recognized. Influential, assertive women have not only been seen throughout history, but in literature as well. For example, Susan B. Anthony fought and pushed for women to have the right to vote. Hilary Clinton took an active role as First Lady during a time when the First Lady stereotypically acted as a hostess who played second fiddle to the president. She made health care her cause and received criticism from the public as being too political and taking on too large an issue for a First Lady. She did so to be recognized around the nation as more than just a doting wife

Schaffer approved an unusual stock sale to help save the troubled Madison, despite federal complaints about McDougal's business practices. Federal investigators looked into those actions, which are central to the allegation that the Clintons helped keep Madison open long after it was broke, as a favor to McDougal.

Women, on the other hand, are difficult to classify as a good leaders because in order to be a leader, we often need to sacrifice our femininity. This belief is actually blocking many women from becoming successful leaders. Therefore, even though there are increasing numbers of successful female leaders in the world, such as Hilary Clinton, Condoleezza Rice, and Ursula Burns female leaders are still a minority.

Feminism: Belief in the social, political, and economic equality of the sexes. As we look back in history women and men were never thought of as equal. When put up next to the strong, dominant male, females were often thought of as lower and not nearly as important. Even now though, as we enter into the twenty-first century, with all kinds of women’s rights and the thought that Hilary Clinton might just become the first women’s president, I have to say that I am probably one of the few women that are actually not in favor of it. During the 1950’s women did not work nor did they in any way contribute to the success of the United States. Men preformed all the dirty work and because of them

leaders. We recently read in our history books how male figures have controlled the government in voting and congress. Although there are powerful women in the government today, such as Sandra Day O'Connor, Hilary Clinton, and Olympia Snowe, it is still a field ruled by men. Have you ever seen a woman president or vice-president? Especially in the early days, women were not considered adequate to be a part of the government. Many great leaders have prospered over time through government, but to no surprise, they have consisted mostly of men.Women have had mighty advancement in today's society. The success that they have shown has truly been an impact in society. Women may not be as successful as men in some aspects, however, the way women have advanced in today's world has shown us that women are an important part. Women's status has risen over time, but throughout sports, religion, and government, the male figure has still ruled the world.

, but they aren't ready for gay marriage yet. The best examples of "neo"-liberals are Senator Hilary Clinton and John Edwards. The way the two political parties are separated currently, only 2 branches from each party exist. The "Neo"-Conservatives are the majority in the Republican party and the Classic Liberals dominate the Democrat party. The Classic Conservatives are a dying breed, since the members of that branch are usually from the North East. In the north east, the majority of children are being brought up as "neo"-liberals. There is a much closer gap between classic and "neo" liberals than there is between the two conservative parties. The way the political spectrum currently is, the two major branches of each party are the farthest apart. This is why the two sides often clash over the simplest things. If one of those two main branches would change, then Congress and the Senate would agree on much more things. Until that day, we are going to have to deal with the two polar opposite branches butting heads.

If a person decides they are ready for a child and makes a life commitment to raising one why would you so no to them? Every child deserves to live in a good stable loving home. If two women or men wanted to add an addition to their family then they should be able to. Now being raised by two homosexuals will not corrupt the youth. Homosexuality is not a disease; you cannot just pass it on to another person it cannot be caught or cured (Clinton, Hilary).

The ancient African proverb “It takes a village to raise a child”, seems to be one of the most political and controversial issues in our modern world. In reading the article “It takes a village” by Hilary Rodham Clinton, I have fathomed how significant a prosperous society plays in well rounding the lives of our children. And also how intimate this topic occurs to be for others. In this essay I will provide evidence to coincide with my credence.
After much research on this topic I have learned there are numerous people who disagree with this aphorism. Many protest that attributing villages to aiding in raising children are credulous, when in fact children are raised by their own families

. Women, however, struggle to reach such heights in their careers. And even when they do so, they are bombarded with ridiculous stereotypes and struggles that seem foreign to me. The resilience of gender inequality may be in part due to stereotypes that portray women and men as innately different (Fitzgibbons Shaffer, Malhotra 2011). Prevailing stereotypes are reinforced by the media’s coverage of women’s issues, women running for elected office, female celebrities, etc. For example, when Hilary Clinton ran for office during the 2008 presidential election, she was criticized for not being “soft” enough, while her male counterparts faced no such criticism. She was lambasted for her wardrobe

I believe that without such a modernistic movement in the 1920's, civil movements in the 1960's would never have been possible. Women, artists, and ethnicities made their first progressive leap to a better future during the 1920's. Those willing to attempt the impossible took a chance and succeeded. Without their inspiration, leaders such as Martin Luther King, Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and Hilary Clinton might have never been able to achieve such greatness as they have.

Also, when speaking of her in articles they use negative words to describe how she speaks, instead of using said or stated they will use complained or yelled. Or when Clinton speaks all cable news shows hear is a woman “nagging” not speaking which automatically degrades her. Now Sarah Palin’s issue is slightly opposite. Sarah Palin is an “overly feminine” politician. Men see her as very attractive which automatically makes her an idiot and unfit to run a country. This creates a double standard.

In essence, the subjection of women through an education system producing conventional “womanly” characters favorable to men is inapplicable today. The “womanly” character no longer exists in today’s context as women are actively entering the same higher education and labor force as men and improving it.
