In 2008, Hillary Clinton attempted the unprecedented feat of becoming the first female president of the United States. During the initial campaign, it was clear the country wasn't ready for a different gender at the helm. Instead, voters decided to award the position to Barack Obama, the nation's first black president. Quietly, Clinton's pursuit was crushed. There would yet be no breaking of that glass ceiling. It was obvious that the party asked that she take her place in line and look to the future.
