We often do the same with royalty, holding them up to an almost unattainable standard and being heartbroken when they tumble from the pedestal that we place them on. But we as a society love our royals, just as we love our First Families in the White House. Watching the Clinton family go through their share of hardships and struggles made them real to me. Now they have emerged stronger than ever, with Hillary Clinton vying for the 2016 Presidential Election and if elected would make her the first female President of the United States and make Bill the First Man of the United States. I love how far our country has come in its diversity and cultural acceptance.
Their daughter Chelsea is an amazing leader in her own right. She is not only a special corespondent for NBC News, but she also works with the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Global Initiative.
Happy Birthday Mr. President and may you have many more to come.
Have a peaceful night!
