So we see former 1st lady, US Senator, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton clinched enough delegates to win the Democratic nomination. That means she would make history as the first woman nominee for President of the United States by a major party.
So if nothing weird happens at the DNC or the RNC for that matter this summer, the match-up will be between Donald Trump and Clinton. We saw Trump really go after his fellow Republican during this year's primary elections giving each of his opponents their own special nicknames. Now we can hear him direct that to the Demcratic nominee.
With Hillary I understand her constituency among women has helped her out during her political career. She still has her admirers who also include my mother. I'm sure in a contest with "The Donald" she may play to that.
Still as much as I'm not happy with the prospect of a Trump presidency, this election will become a lot more interesting considering who's in it. Trump may have to be smart with Hillary and unfortunately I will have to find out Hillary's strategy with Trump. Of course it's always possible Trump could be his own worst enemy and strangely it hasn't happened this year at all.
In my mind this year, the better man or woman didn't succeed. All I can say is that we're in for a wild ride. Looking forward to seeing how this race develops.
