8. Hillary Clinton. She’s one of the most powerful people in America. She holds the fourth highest position in the US government. She was the first woman to launch an almost successful Presidential campaign. She is married to one of my favorite politicians of all time, President Bill Clinton.
Some people think she’s a bit of an ice queen, but I think to be a high ranking woman within the US Government requires a stiff upper lip that us mere mortals simply do not process. She’s absolutely brilliant and willing to take a lot of crap in the press. She’s also a mother. I love that about her. I love that I’ve met her twice and she was gracious both times. She stands for something; for the idea that a woman can do what a man can do…and sometimes better.
