Hillary Clinton--I don't think so
I am not a Republican or a Democrat but instead, I am kinda in the middle of the road in regards to politics. But after watching the Democratic debate last night, there is no way that I would ever vote for Hillary Clinton. From what I can tell, her best asset is her name and not anything that she has accomplished. When I talk to people about the Presidential race, some say how great she would be as the 1st female president. Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with a woman becoming the President of the United States but my question is this.....why her? What has she done? Let's see....she lied about Benghazi... lied about the emails...and numerous other things that damage any credibility that she could have. That's all bad so now we move on to the good so here it is...... you hear that? It's the sound of crickets as I honestly can't see anything that she has done. Yes, she was a Senator and also served as Secretary of State but what did she accomplish in those positions? During her time as Senator(as well as before and since), she has been an advocate for something along the lines of our present day Obama Care(which has turned out to be a nightmare) and she dropped the ball in regards to Benghazi. She has been setting herself up for a Presidential run for decades now and her chance is finally here. I know that she would be the first woman president if she won the election but is that a good reason to elect someone to one of the most powerful positions in the world? NO!!! There will be better options for this first to occur and this race is too important to make that the deciding factor. Is what I'm writing going to change anyone's mind? I highly doubt it but I just know without a doubt that she will never get my vote.

Just a comment concerning the issue of electing the first female president which seems to be a major selling point for Clinton. Attention liberals: she is not the only woman in the running. Carly Fiorina is a woman. Where is the African American Democratic hopeful? Or the Hispanic Democratic hopeful? Or the Indian American Democratic hopeful? Hilary and 4 old white guys are who the Dems offer. The GOP also offers African American Ben Carson, Indian American Bobby Jindal and Hispanics Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. Who is the true party of diversity? Who is the party offering to make history this election?1

Hilliary Clinton also will not get my vote. If she gets off free with this email scandal, I will really believe in corruption at some high places.

Hillary is about symbolism over substance, as I see it. She reminds me of many others who hold the positions, just to put the titles on a resume, but who cannot effectively give any meat and potatoes to the resume about what they have really accomplished, other than a convoluted and fluffy position description. She is not alone in that.
Heck, we KNOW what Monica Lewinsky accomplished the years that she, Bill and Hillary were in the White House. Perhaps the Democratic party would consider putting her on the ticket? Oh, that's right. Her sexual behavior and poor decision-making would make her unacceptable for such a position. (No, I am not serious about her being POTUS.)
And I digress...

I really hope Hillary will not become the President of the United States, because , seriously this country will be doomed if she wins.

Well, currently it looks like a Clinton / Trump run off. Of course, things can change. What has Trump done and where does he stand on equality and diversity? Please note, I am not a US citizen, so I have no vote in this.
