Hillary Clinton could not be in a better position for the November election. Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, who appear to stand in her way, are actually helping her to position herself for victory. Issues and ideology aside Hillary is way ahead of the pack in the the game of political chess and should have no trouble winning in November.
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.
