Achieving the American Dream, Hillary Clinton
I remember like it was yesterday. Bill and I in 1992, him being the president and I the first lady of the United States. This honestly feels like a dream. Me as the first woman to be the President of the United States. I am overwhelmed with the celebration, and seeing my daughter Chelsea, and husband Bill with a smile on their faces and filled with happiness over there mother and wife winning the election really brings warmth to my heart.
When I first decided to run for president, I knew it would be a tough race. I believed i had the advantage because I had the closest look at my husband Bill’s presidential race back in 1992. So of course Bill was giving me all types of advice on how to run my campaign. I met all the requirements to be the president. Now it was just if I can build up a strong enough campaign to see if I can win the whole election.
It was the morning of the election, I got out of bed opened my drape, and was ready to start the day. I went down to the kitchen to catch some breakfast before I left. Bill was already at the table, he looked at me and said, “I know how you feel, the nerves are kicking in”, I responded by telling him, “Nervous? I am extremely nervous but eager.” He smiled at me and continued to eat his breakfast. While eating I received a call from my daughter Chelsea. She basically repeated what Bill said but in a louder tone. I tried to calm my nerves by going in the living room and reading for a bit, but that surely did not help. Bill turned the television on, and all you see in the news is, “Who will be the next president?”, and the medi exploiting all of Donald's and my mistakes we made during our campaign. Which made me even more nervous, so I looked away from the TV. Bill noticed and said, “do not worry about the media they will do anything for the money.” So my confidence was going out the window.
It was about 12:37 in the afternoon and the news were displaying how much money each campaign raised including fundraising. I gained a little confidence when they showed the numbers because I was leading when it came to how much money I raised in my campaign. Bill then said, “see do not be so nervous you will be fine.” I was on the way to Washington D.C, from our house in Chappaqua, New York, and you can just hear the roar from the crowd from where people gathered to see who will win the election. We stopped to get lunch at a local deli in D.C. One of the employees handed me my sandwich then noticed it was me. She went on and on about how she appreciates what I am doing for women rights and the middle class which put a smile on my face. She then went on about how she is a part of the Democratic party just like me. So I left the deli with a chip on my shoulder. Our car eventually stopped at this hotel, I bought a suite to watch and see who wins the race. I was on the verge of calming down until I turned the television back on. The news were saying that Donald Trump was in the lead and then they interviewed some Trump supporters to get there opinion on the race. The words they said about me. The nerves quickly rushed back and my anxiety built up. I kept telling myself, “remember what Bill said, no matter what I will be fine.” We invited some friends and family to our suite for a gathering. I was in my room, just focusing on the election. Thinking about what I could have done better. The states I won and lost. All this non-profit fundraising our campaign did. The fact that if I were to be elected that I would be making history, and can be a role model for all women in the world. All of this just felt like I was in a movie.
It was about 8 o’clock at night and it was time. Time to reveal who will be the next President of the United States for the next four years. Everyone gathered in the living room of the suite and surrounded the TV. Everyone kept asking me, “how are you feeling Hillary? What if you lose? What if all of this was for nothing?”. I replied, “we will have to wait and see, but none of this was for nothing, win or lose I believe I made history and a step in the right way for all women.” Bill looked at me, nodded and gave me a smile. My palms were sweaty, body shaking, teeth grinding, the results were in. The announcer gave a speech about how trump and I worked hard to get where we are at now. He finally said, “ the 45th President of the United States will be… Hillary Clinton.”
The fireworks were popped, the room went crazy. Everybody gave me a hug and confessed their happiness for me. All I could do is cry tears of joy. It was truly a dream come true. I became the first woman to be President of the United States! I went over to my husband and my daughter and gave them a hug. While the hug I told them we did it and told them none of this was possible without you two always being here by my side. I was just overwhelmed at the moment. The first woman to be the President of the United States Hillary Clinton it just sounded so good.
From my husband being the president in 1992 to me being elected in 2016. Like I said before this felt like a dream, the range of emotions that ran through my body. The praise I received from my supporters, friends and family. I just kept saying to myself, “you are the President of the United States.” It was just a surreal feeling. My daughter now can brag that her mother was the first woman President. That smile my husband gave me. A smile of accomplishment, as mile saying, “you did it.” I am the 45th president and I am looking to keep my promises. So not just my husband and daughter can smile at me, but the all the people apart of the United States can look at me with the same expression.
