Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton, más conocida como Hillary Clinton, es una política y abogada estadounidense. Fue secretaria de Estado, senadora y primera dama de los Estados Unidos. De 2009 a 2013, fue secretaria de Estado, formando parte de la primera administración del presidente Barack Obama. Representó al estado de Nueva York en el Senado desde 2001 hasta 2009. Como esposa del 42º presidente de los Estados Unidos, Bill Clinton, fue primera dama de 1993 a 2001. Luego de liderar una de las dos candidaturas principales para la nominación presidencial demócrata en las elecciones de 2008, anunció por segunda vez su candidatura para la nominación de su partido en las elecciones presidenciales de Estados Unidos de 2016.

Oriunda de Illinois, Hillary Rodham fue la primera alumna en brindar un discurso de graduación en el Wellesley College en 1969. Tras recibir su título de la Facultad de Derecho de Yale en 1973, comenzó su carrera como abogada. Luego de un periodo como asesora parlamentaria en temas legales, se trasladó a Arkansas en 1974 y se casó con Bill Clinton en 1975. Rodham cofundó Defensores para Niños y Familias de Arkansas en 1977 y se convirtió en la primera mujer en presidir la Legal Services Corporation en 1978. Nombrada como la primera socia mujer en el Rose Law Firm en 1979, apareció dos veces en The National Law Journal como una de los cien abogados más influyentes en Estados Unidos. Como primera dama de Arkansas, de 1979 a 1981 y de 1983 a 1992, dirigió un grupo de trabajo con el fin de reformar el sistema educativo de Arkansas. Fue miembro de la junta directiva de Wal-Mart y de varias otras empresas.

En 1994, como primera dama de los Estados Unidos, su principal iniciativa, el plan de salud Clinton, no obtuvo la aprobación del Congreso de los EE. UU. Sin embargo, en 1997 y 1999, Clinton desempeñó un papel importante en la defensa de la creación del Programa de Seguro Médico Infantil , la Ley de Adopción y Familias Seguras , y la Ley de Independencia de Hogares de Guarda . Sus años como primera dama obtuvieron una respuesta polarizada de la opinión pública estadounidense. Ha sido la única primera dama en ser citada, testificó ante un gran jurado en 1996 debido a la controversia de Whitewater, pero nunca fue acusada de irregularidades ni en esta ni en otras investigaciones llevadas a cabo durante la administración de su marido. El estado de su matrimonio fue objeto de muchas especulaciones tras el escándalo Lewinsky en 1998.

Después de mudarse al estado de Nueva York, Clinton fue elegida senadora en 2000; es la única primera dama estadounidense que ha postulado a un cargo público. Luego de los ataques del 11 de septiembre respaldó las acciones militares en Afganistán y la resolución de la guerra en Irak, pero posteriormente, se opuso a la administración Bush en el manejo de la guerra en Irak y en la mayoría de sus políticas internas. Clinton fue reelegida como senadora con un amplio margen en 2006. En la contienda por la nominación presidencial demócrata de 2008, Clinton ganó más primarias y delegados que ninguna otra candidata mujer en la historia de Estados Unidos, pero perdió por estrecho margen ante el senador de Illinois, Barack Obama.

Como secretaria de Estado de la administración Obama, desde enero de 2009 hasta febrero de 2013, Clinton estuvo al frente de la respuesta norteamericana a la Primavera Árabe y respaldó la intervención militar en Libia. Asumió la responsabilidad por las fallas de seguridad relacionadas con los ataques en Bengasi de 2012, que terminaron en las muertes de personal del consulado estadounidense, pero defendió sus acciones personales en relación al tema. Clinton visitó más países que ningún otro secretario de Estado. Consideró al «poder inteligente» como la estrategia para afirmar el liderazgo y valores de EE. UU. en el mundo, mediante la combinación del poder militar con diplomacia y capacidades estadounidenses en la economía, tecnología y otras áreas. Ha promovido el empoderamiento de las mujeres en todo el mundo y ha defendido el uso de redes sociales para hacer llegar el mensaje de EE. UU. al exterior. Luego de dejar el cargo al final del primer mandato de Obama, publicó su quinto libro y brindó conferencias y discursos, antes de anunciar su segunda postulación a la presidencia en abril de 2015.

„Because even more important than the history we make tonight, is the history we will write together in the years ahead. Let's begin with what we're going to do to help working people in our country get ahead and stay ahead.“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: Tonight, we've reached a milestone in our nation's march toward a more perfect union: the first time that a major party has nominated a woman for President. Standing here as my mother's daughter, and my daughter's mother, I'm so happy this day has come. Happy for grandmothers and little girls and everyone in between. Happy for boys and men, too – because when any barrier falls in America, for anyone, it clears the way for everyone. When there are no ceilings, the sky's the limit. So let's keep going, until every one of the 161 million women and girls across America has the opportunity she deserves. Because even more important than the history we make tonight, is the history we will write together in the years ahead. Let's begin with what we're going to do to help working people in our country get ahead and stay ahead.

„Puerto Ricans are citizen of America. They deserve to be treated as citizens and to be given the opportunity to get back on their feet economically.“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: The Congress must give authority to Puerto Rico to restructure its debts. Just like it has enabled states and cities to restructure their debt. And it’s a grave injustice for the Congress, led by the Republicans to be refusing to enact that opportunity within the bankruptcy law.... Puerto Ricans are citizen of America. They deserve to be treated as citizens and to be given the opportunity to get back on their feet economically.

„America is great – because America is good.“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: We will stand up against mean and divisive rhetoric wherever it comes from. You know, for the past year, many people made the mistake of laughing off Donald Trump's comments – excusing him as an entertainer just putting on a show. They think he couldn't possibly mean all the horrible things he says – like when he called women “pigs.”Or said that an American judge couldn't be fair because of his Mexican heritage. Or when he mocks and mimics a reporter with a disability. Or insults prisoners of war like John McCain –a true hero and patriot who deserves our respect. At first, I admit, I couldn't believe he meant it either. It was just too hard to fathom – that someone who wants to lead our nation could say those things. Could be like that. But here's the sad truth: There is no other Donald Trump.... This is it. And in the end, it comes down to what Donald Trump doesn't get: that America is great – because America is good. "America is great because America is good" can be found in a contribution by Reverend Clarenca Reynolds to the September 6, 1922 https://books.google.com/books?id=3sYpAAAAYAAJ&pg=RA3-PT21 issue of the Herald and Presbyter. The line is sometime falsely attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville.

„I will stop any trade deal that kills jobs or holds down wages – including the . I oppose it now, I’ll oppose it after the election, and I’ll oppose it as President.“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: I will stop any trade deal that kills jobs or holds down wages – including the. I oppose it now, I’ll oppose it after the election, and I’ll oppose it as President.... I will stand up to China and anyone else who tries to take advantage of American workers and companies. And I’m going to ramp up enforcement by appointing, for the first time, a chief trade prosecutor, I will triple the number of enforcement officers, and when countries break the rules, we won't hesitate to impose targeted tariffs.

„The American character is both idealistic and realistic: why can't our government reflect both?“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: The lost opportunities of the years since September 11 are the stuff of tragedy. Remember the people rallying in sympathy on the streets of Teheran, the famous headline — "we are all Americans now." Five years later much of the world wonders what America is now. As we face this landscape of failure and disorder, nothing is more urgent than for us to begin again to rebuild a bipartisan consensus to ensure our interests, increase our security and advance our values. It could well start with what our founders had in mind when they pledged "a decent respect for the opinions of mankind" in the Declaration of Independence. I think it's fair to say we are now all internationalists and we are all realists. This Administration's choices were false choices. Internationalism versus unilateralism. Realism versus idealism. Is there really any argument that America must remain a preeminent leader for peace and freedom, and yet we must be more willing to work in concert with other nations and international institutions to reach common goals? The American character is both idealistic and realistic: why can't our government reflect both?

„Women who want to work deserve to work.“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: Women who want to work deserve to work. And whenever they are denied that opportunity, it’s not fair to them – and we all lose out. In a competitive 21st century global economy, we cannot afford to leave talent on the sidelines. When we leave people out or write them off, we not only shortchange them and their dreams, we shortchange our country and our own futures.

„I don't think top-down works in America. I think building the middle class, investing in the middle class, making college debt-free so more young people can get their education, helping people refinance their debt from college at a lower rate. Those are the kinds of things that will really boost the economy. Broad-based, inclusive growth is what we need in America, not more advantages for people at the very top.“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: We've looked at your [Trump's] tax proposals. I don't see changes in the corporate tax rates or the kinds of proposals you're referring to that would cause the repatriation, bringing back of money that's stranded overseas. I happen to support that. I happen to support that in a way that will actually work to our benefit. But when I look at what you have proposed, you have what is called now the Trump loophole, because it would so advantage you and the business you do.... Trumped-up trickle-down. Trickle-down did not work. It got us into the mess we were in, in 2008 and 2009. Slashing taxes on the wealthy hasn't worked. And a lot of really smart, wealthy people know that. And they are saying, hey, we need to do more to make the contributions we should be making to rebuild the middle class. I don't think top-down works in America. I think building the middle class, investing in the middle class, making college debt-free so more young people can get their education, helping people refinance their debt from college at a lower rate. Those are the kinds of things that will really boost the economy. Broad-based, inclusive growth is what we need in America, not more advantages for people at the very top.

Standing here as my mother's daughter, and my daughter's mother, I'm so happy this day has come. Happy for grandmothers and little girls and everyone in between.

„Americans are willing to work – and work hard.“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: Americans are willing to work – and work hard. But right now, an awful lot of people feel there is less and less respect for the work they do. And less respect for them, period. Democrats are the party of working people. But we haven't done a good enough job showing that we get what you're going through, and that we're going to do something about it.

„Good work deserves fair pay, no matter who you are.“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: We’re going to focus on jobs and incomes. I’m going to fight to give more Americans with disabilities the chance to work alongside those without disabilities and do the same jobs for the same pay and benefits. People with disabilities shouldn’t be isolated. They should be given the chance to work with everyone else. And we’re going to eliminate the subminimum wage, which is a vestige from an ugly, ignorant past. Good work deserves fair pay, no matter who you are. Second, we’re going to work with our colleges and universities to make them more accessible to students with disabilities. To have a truly inclusive economy, we need a truly inclusive education system. So let’s raise our standards.... Third, we’re going to partner with businesses and other stakeholders to ensure those living with a disability can get hired and stay hired.... Fourth, let’s build on the success of the Americans with Disabilities Act by finally ratifying the United Nations. It has the strong backing of leaders across the political spectrum, and it’s a chance to show American values and American leadership.
