In 2008, Hillary Clinton lost the Democratic Party nomination to Barack Obama who eventually became president for two terms.  Today, she is making another try and seeking to write history as the first female president of America.

“I’m running for president,” she said during a short video clip announcing her aspiration. “Everyday Americans need a champion. And I want to be that champion. So I’m hitting the road to earn your vote.”

The Filipino community is weighing in:

“I feel that she has been preparing to run from what I can see for a very long time. I feel that she will do well to run for President. I would vote for her. She has a good platform and      she has been an icon representing strong leadership.”

“Lets see what happens who else will run.  With all we hear about her the email scandal and all I just don’t know.”

“I feel as though the American public is ready for a woman president. As compared to other candidates, she has the most experience in regards to delegation, foreign diplomacy and   bi partisanship. I feel as though her nomination as president would speak volumes of how we have progressed as voters.”

“I’m not sure I have heard so much about her and some things are not good so she has to work to convince me to vote for her.”

“When I came home from the Navy, I had a government Trust job on the Arts, when a Republican Congress made a huge 75% cut to the arts including state finding to keeping the arts in our public school systems, I changed my party from Republican to Democrat. Since then, I have supported the Democratic ticket.  I have no problem with Hilary Clinton. In fact, I voted for her over Obama as our Democratic Presidential Candidate. The reason I did was because I liked President Bill Clinton and I believe that having Hilary as our President, it would be like having 2 political minds in office.”

“ Its too early to say if she is the best candidate for the job. I will have to follow the race closely in the coming months to know who will get my support. “
