'I really do hope that we have a woman president in my lifetime,' Hillary Rodham Clinton said this week. Was that a hint about her own possible candidacy?
She didn’t say she’s going to run for the White House in 2016. But, to many listeners, the latest words of Hillary Rodham Clinton certainly hint that it’s a strong possibility.
“Let me say this, hypothetically speaking,” she said, “I really do hope that we have a woman president in my lifetime.”
Members of the audience, at a women’s lecture series in Toronto, cheered.
To get beyond the “hypothetical," a quick follow-up question: Isn’t it possible that, when voters get the opportunity to see a woman on the presidential ballot as a major contender, the initials of that nominee might be H.R.C.?
Answer: Yes, it looks very possible.
