On the other hand, she’s strong on issues such as health care and women’s rights.  She’s probably tough enough to stand up to the Republicans.  Moreover, she almost won the nomination in 2008, and now it’s her turn; America deserves a female president, and she’d be a strong candidate.  Many women strongly support her.
