"I have admired Hillary since she was the First Lady and supported her for the nomination eight years ago. While I was glad to see Mr. Obama win the presidency I was a little sad that Hillary did not get to run and I mentioned to my daughter that I didn't think I would live to see a woman president. Now in 2016 I am thrilled to vote for Hillary, and I very much hope that my pessimistic prophecy is proved wrong and I get to see Hillary inaugurated as president of the United States."
