It was supposed to go like this: At the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City, standing under a glass ceiling, Hillary Clinton was going to claim her victory as the first woman president.
That didn’t happen.
She lost, in a shocking upset, and at a day-after event Clinton took a much smaller stage at the New Yorker Hotel in New York City, conceding the election to Donald Trump — the Republican nominee who not only trailed her in the polls, but was less favorable in the electoral map, running a campaign on divisive, fearmongering tactics.
Showing her resilience once again, Secretary Clinton announced that she would be running for the Presidency in 2016. This time she won the Democratic party’s nomination – becoming the first woman to be nominated as a major party candidate. Unfortunately, things went downhill from there. The race that was projected to be an easy Clinton win quickly turned into an incredibly tight race. She eventually conceded, though she won the popular vote. The outcome was a huge blow to the Democrats looking to not only bring a third term of liberalism to the White House but make history with the first female president.
Clinton didn’t specifically say that she would never run again in her concession speech but she virtually conceded her life in American politics by saying the following words,” I know we have still not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling, but someday someone will — and hopefully sooner than we might think right now”.
Clinton, 69,with her two failed bids at the presidency, is unlikely to be on the front lines of politics again. Her husband, Bill Clinton, 70, a former president who was widely expected to be the first husband to accompany his wife to the White House, likely will return to philanthropic efforts at his family’s foundation.
Nevertheless, Bill and Hillary Clinton, a husband-and-wife duo unmatched in U.S. history, shaped the United States by holding some of the highest offices in the land and their names will go down in the annals of US History.
