I don't believe in voting a straight Republican or Democratic ticket unless of course, the ones up for election are the most qualified.   I also don't believe in voting strictly race or gender just for voting for them.   We must vote for the best candidate and that includes taking in the good points and most of all the bad points.   We must consider how bad were the mistakes.  Of course we all make mistakes, and those running for office are human and make those mistakes.    True, Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton have spent years in different government offices and have served years doing so.  I can't and won't take that away from them but let's  let the reader have a glimpse of the mistakes that were made and let the voter decide if the good out weighs the bad.   I believe a lot of what is told in the book is sugar coated and to be informed and able to make an objective decision, we, the public need to know all.  It is true she has a proven track record but let's go beyond the surface and what we want to believe.   What we want to believe doesn't help the voter make a good decision.   True, she has done some good for children but let's look at the entire picture.   What lies behind those good deeds? 
This book is definitely from a Democratic point of view and it talks of the Republican party wanting to bring America backwards.  Do you really believe anyone wants to go backwards?    Hillary's vision is that no American should be left behind.   But aren't Americans being left behind every minute of every day?  
Often times, promises are made on both sides of the ticket in order to secure those ever so important votes.  Often times, people don't look further, they just hear what they want to hear. Often times,  people don't stop and think of, where will the money come from to fund all these programs and improvements when we are already so deeply in debt.   I don't believe promises should be made without absolutely being able to back them up.  It's all nice and good to say that everyone will get an equal chance, that fairness will prevail and that race, gender, position in life doesn't matter, but let's get real, IT DOES!!  We don't know what tomorrow will hold, or the day after.   We need to think of the here and now and what will help people who are suffering now!
True, some respect, and most recognize who she is, but not all respect her at this point.  As you can gather by my review, I'm not a democrat, I'm not a Republican.  I believe in voting for whoever is the best qualified for the position and a person's name, recognition, position in life and promises mean very little when seeking change and the best we can get for ourselves, the voters of the United States of America.
Hillary Clinton is a strong woman who hasn't faltered in her decisions and I'm sure her softer side comes forth with her grandchild.   
America is struggling, the working and unemployed people are struggling, the economy is struggling and our security is struggling.   Can Hilary  change these things or will we have to look elsewhere?  
Only you, the voter can decide who is best for the office, the highest office in the United States of America, the commander in chief. You must vote who is best for what the American people want and need, not for promises that can't be kept or because of the well known name or because of being a woman or man or a Democrat or Republican.
Read this and decide for yourself.
