Will Canada Ever Have its Own Hillary Clinton?

Hillary Clinton announced her candidacy for president Sunday. If successful, she will become the very first woman president of the United States of America and her party's best chance to defeat the Republicans in 2016. Could a Canadian woman, with the same stature, gift and substance as the former first lady, attain the same milestone in Canada? Are we closer to having the first elected woman prime minister in Canada? In the 2015 federal election, it is shaping up to be a race between three white males -- Stephen Harper, Justin Trudeau and Thomas Mulcair. Yet our politics should reflect our population and perspectives.
