Hillary Clinton As The First Woman In The White House
Hillary Clinton would be the first woman to hold the office of U.S. President. Although since the first president of the USA, George Washington, 227 years have passed, no woman has ever managed to reach the highest political office in the US. She has already proven that she is a good politician in the office of Secretary of State. During her tenure, she visited more than 100 countries, and her main goal was to improve relations between Russia and the U.S., but she did not succeed.
