A few key issues have been strategically discussed by Hillary Clinton more recently and this may be establishing her foundational step toward winning votes. The Hill mentioned Hillary’s statement, “that the next election will set the stage for ‘a lot of what can and should be done’.” Agreeably, what can and should be done is parallel to what Clinton has been making an effort to support. She is speaking to women on their empowerment and strength, pointing out that “women are the world’s most untapped resource” and that the media works with a “double standard” when reporting on women versus men. Clinton mentioned, also at the fifth annual Women in the World Summit, that political parties are driving a wedge between our country’s progress and it is causing America to fall further behind. The former Secretary of State left voters wondering of her presidential race intent when she proclaimed, “some of what hasn’t been finished may go on to be finished.” Clinton has also aggressively made clear, after seeing American’s disapproval of the way Obama has handled the situation in Ukraine, that she believes Putin’s actions need to be addressed with stricter consequences. Let’s not forget to mention the super PAC, Ready for Hillary, which has already raised millions of dollars in case Clinton decides to run. Every recent action taken by Hillary has been a strategic set up toward the upcoming presidential run. She has somewhat pulled away from the mainstream media, most of her recent comments have been carefully spoken with a bipartisan view, and Hillary has publicly disagreed with Obama’s foreign policy decisions.
I would be more surprised, at this point, if Hillary Clinton decided against running for president in 2016 than if she announces to pursue the Oval Office.
