A lot of people said that they wanted Hillary to win, because they wanted to see a female POTUS. They so wanted to see someone break that "glass ceiling." I have no doubt that one day, there will be a woman elected President of the United States.
It's hard for anyone to get elected President. It's outrageously hard just to get the nomination.
IMHO there are a couple of things about Hillary Clinton and her campaign that caused her defeat, and it wasn't her new wardrobe. Actually, I think the colors were brilliantly patriotic and photogenic, and jacket-styling was a great improvement over her usual masculine-tailored suits. Also her wig and make-up were perfection.
Hillary lost for one big reason. Call it character.
- The constant corruption charges, including talk that her charity, the Clinton Foundation paid for her daughter's wedding made it harder for ordinary Americans to trust her.
- Her nastiness, going for the negative, culminating in her notorious "deplorable" comments about Trump supporters kept them away instead of charming them to her side.
