Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton , nata Hillary Diane Rodham , è una politica statunitense del Partito Democratico, già senatrice e Segretario di Stato.

Prima di intraprendere l'attività politica, ha esercitato la professione di avvocato e docente di diritto penale, diventando la prima donna a essere ammessa come socio nel «Rose Law Firm», uno degli studi legali più antichi degli Stati Uniti; ha inoltre fatto parte dei consigli d'amministrazione delle multinazionali Walmart e Lafarge.

È sposata con Bill Clinton dal 1975; a seguito dell'elezione del marito alla carica di presidente degli Stati Uniti d'America, è stata first lady dal 1993 al 2001. Successivamente prestò servizio per otto anni come senatrice in rappresentanza dello Stato di New York , venendo eletta per il suo primo mandato mentre era ancora first lady e diventando quindi la prima moglie di un presidente a ricoprire una carica elettiva. Durante la sua permanenza al Congresso, sostenne apertamente l'intervento armato in Afghanistan e in Iraq, ma in un secondo momento criticò la gestione delle operazioni militari da parte dell'amministrazione di George W. Bush.

Nel gennaio del 2007 annunciò la sua candidatura alle elezioni primarie del proprio partito in previsione delle consultazioni presidenziali dell'anno successivo; malgrado i sondaggi della vigilia la vedessero largamente favorita, dopo un aspro confronto fu sconfitta a sorpresa dal senatore Barack Obama, conseguendo tuttavia il maggior numero di suffragi popolari – quasi 18 milioni – nella storia delle primarie statunitensi. La senatrice annunciò in seguito il proprio appoggio nei confronti di Obama, che fu eletto presidente.

Hillary Clinton svolse le funzioni di Segretario di Stato fra il gennaio del 2009 e il febbraio del 2013; rinunciò all'incarico al termine del primo mandato presidenziale di Obama, venendo sostituita da John Kerry.

A seguito dei risultati delle primarie, è la candidata in pectore del Partito Democratico in previsione delle elezioni presidenziali del 2016.

The great story here for anybody willing to find it, write about it and explain it is this vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced for president.

„Keeping our nation safe and honoring the people who do it will be my highest priority.“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: You want a leader who understands we are stronger when we work with our allies around the world and care for our veterans here at home. Keeping our nation safe and honoring the people who do it will be my highest priority.

„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.“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: 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. That’s one reason why I care so much about supporting working parents. It’s one reason why I’m such a strong supporter of comprehensive immigration reform.... It’s also one reason why we’ve got to break down barriers of systemic racism, including under-investment that has held communities of color back for generations. That’s part of building an inclusive economy, too. And it’s why I believe we need to do more to help young people, who are left behind in the wake of the Great Recession, find those strategies and opportunities that will get them moving ahead again. And we’ve got to help older Americans who’ve displaced by automation and outsourcing in our changing economy.

„We can't afford to cede our leadership“

— Hillary Clinton

And America's farmers and rural communities have to be at the heart of this effort. Cedar Rapids Gazette Guest Column (2015 May 28)

„Freedom and equality, justice and opportunity.“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: Freedom and equality, justice and opportunity. We should be so proud that these words are associated with us. I have to tell you, as your Secretary of State, I went to 112 countries, and when people hear those words – they hear America.

„What difference at this point does it make?“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: With all due respect, the fact is, we had four dead Americans—was it because of a protest or because of guys out for a walk one night and decided to go kill some Americans?

„You don’t make America great by getting rid of everything that made America great.“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: I was the first one to call him out. I called him out when he was calling Mexicans rapists.... His demagoguery, his trafficking in prejudice and paranoia has no place in our political system. Especially from somebody running for president who couldn’t decide whether or not to disavow the and David Duke. So people can draw their own conclusions about him. I will just end by saying this. You don’t make America great by getting rid of everything that made America great. I think it’s un-American. I think what he has promoted is not at all in keeping with American values. When asked if Donald Trump is racist.

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.
