Waiting for a Woman President

I was 21 years old and proud to cast my first presidential ballot for Shirley Chisholm in 1972.  

Then in 1984 I was 36 years old and seven months pregnant, standing on a street corner waving a sign for Geraldine Ferraro and Walter Mondale on election day.

When John McCain chose Sarah Palin as his running mate in 2008, I was happy.  That meant that either my favored candidate, Barack Obama, would win or I'd get to watch a woman be vice president of the USA.

Now I am 67 years old and happy to see Hillary Clinton run for the Democratic party's nomination.

No way would I vote for anyone but Hillary in 2016.  It's about time.
