Hillary Diane Rodhamová Clintonová, nepřechýleně Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton je bývalá ministryně zahraničních věcí Spojených států amerických, povoláním právnička. V dubnu 2015 ohlásila svou druhou kandidaturu na prezidentku USA a od února 2016 se účastní demokratických primárek.

Dříve působila v roli služebně mladší senátorky za stát New York. Byla kandidátkou na nominaci za Demokratickou stranu v prezidentských volbách roku 2008. Je manželkou Billa Clintona, 42. prezidenta USA, a z tohoto důvodu byla v letech 1993–2001 první dámou USA.

Rodačka z předměstí Chicaga poprvé přitáhla širší pozornost v roce 1969 za absolventský projev na Wellesley College, který pronesla jako první tamní studentka. V roce 1973 absolvovala právnickou fakultu Yaleovy univerzity. Po krátkém zaměstnání právní poradkyně v Kongresu se v roce 1974 přestěhovala s Billem Clintonem do Arkansasu a v říjnu 1975 se vzali. Roku 1979 byla jako první žena jmenována partnerem v právnické kanceláři Rose Law Firm; dvakrát byla uvedena v seznamu sta nejvlivnějších amerických právníků. V letech 1979–1981 a opět 1983–1992 byla arkansaskou první dámou a působila v řadě organizací zabývajících se dobročinností pro děti, zasedala ve správní radě Wal-Martu a několika dalších korporací.

Když byla první dámou USA, její hlavní iniciativa, Clintonův plán zdravotní péče, neprošla v roce 1994 Kongresem. V letech 1997 a 1999 Clintonová hrála velkou roli při prosazení státního programu dětského zdravotního pojištění, dále také zákona o adopci a bezpečných rodinách a zákona o nezávislosti pěstounské péče. Stala se jedinou první dámou, která byla předvolána svědčit před federální velkou porotou v důsledku aféry Whitewater roku 1996. Při tomto ani při žádném z několika dalších vyšetřování během prezidentského období Billa Clintona nebyla obviněna z nepřípustného jednání. Stav jejího manželství s Billem Clintonem se stal předmětem podrobné veřejné diskuse po jeho skandálu s praktikantkou jménem Monica Lewinsky v roce 1998.

20. ledna 2009 se stala ministryní zahraničí USA ve vládě nového prezidenta Baracka Obamy, jehož byla největší soupeřkou v primárních volbách Demokratické strany.

Hillary Clintonová byla první první dáma, jež obdržela soudní obsílku pro výslech před velkou porotou, stejně jako první prezidentský kandidát vyšetřovaný FBI. V kauze obcházení bezpečnosti použití soukromého e-mailového serveru a účtu Clintonové, vyšetřované týmem pracovníků FBI, bylo na konci dubna 2016 rozšířeno vyšetřování.

„You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables.“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump's supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. At a fund-raiser in Manhattan, as quoted in [http://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/11/us/politics/hillary-clinton-basket-of-deplorables.html "Hillary Clinton Calls Many Trump Backers ‘Deplorables,’ and G.O.P. Pounces"] by Amy Chozick, The New York Times (10 September 2016)

„I don't think top-down works in America. I think building the middle class, investing in the middle class, making college debt-free so more young people can get their education, helping people refinance their debt from college at a lower rate. Those are the kinds of things that will really boost the economy. Broad-based, inclusive growth is what we need in America, not more advantages for people at the very top.“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: We've looked at your [Trump's] tax proposals. I don't see changes in the corporate tax rates or the kinds of proposals you're referring to that would cause the repatriation, bringing back of money that's stranded overseas. I happen to support that. I happen to support that in a way that will actually work to our benefit. But when I look at what you have proposed, you have what is called now the Trump loophole, because it would so advantage you and the business you do.... Trumped-up trickle-down. Trickle-down did not work. It got us into the mess we were in, in 2008 and 2009. Slashing taxes on the wealthy hasn't worked. And a lot of really smart, wealthy people know that. And they are saying, hey, we need to do more to make the contributions we should be making to rebuild the middle class. I don't think top-down works in America. I think building the middle class, investing in the middle class, making college debt-free so more young people can get their education, helping people refinance their debt from college at a lower rate. Those are the kinds of things that will really boost the economy. Broad-based, inclusive growth is what we need in America, not more advantages for people at the very top.

„America is great – because America is good.“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: We will stand up against mean and divisive rhetoric wherever it comes from. You know, for the past year, many people made the mistake of laughing off Donald Trump's comments – excusing him as an entertainer just putting on a show. They think he couldn't possibly mean all the horrible things he says – like when he called women “pigs.”Or said that an American judge couldn't be fair because of his Mexican heritage. Or when he mocks and mimics a reporter with a disability. Or insults prisoners of war like John McCain –a true hero and patriot who deserves our respect. At first, I admit, I couldn't believe he meant it either. It was just too hard to fathom – that someone who wants to lead our nation could say those things. Could be like that. But here's the sad truth: There is no other Donald Trump.... This is it. And in the end, it comes down to what Donald Trump doesn't get: that America is great – because America is good. "America is great because America is good" can be found in a contribution by Reverend Clarenca Reynolds to the [https://books.google.com/books?id=3sYpAAAAYAAJ&pg=RA3-PT21 September 6, 1922] issue of the Herald and Presbyter. The line is sometime falsely attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville.

„The American character is both idealistic and realistic: why can't our government reflect both?“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: The lost opportunities of the years since September 11 are the stuff of tragedy. Remember the people rallying in sympathy on the streets of Teheran, the famous headline — "we are all Americans now." Five years later much of the world wonders what America is now. As we face this landscape of failure and disorder, nothing is more urgent than for us to begin again to rebuild a bipartisan consensus to ensure our interests, increase our security and advance our values. It could well start with what our founders had in mind when they pledged "a decent respect for the opinions of mankind" in the Declaration of Independence. I think it's fair to say we are now all internationalists and we are all realists. This Administration's choices were false choices. Internationalism versus unilateralism. Realism versus idealism. Is there really any argument that America must remain a preeminent leader for peace and freedom, and yet we must be more willing to work in concert with other nations and international institutions to reach common goals? The American character is both idealistic and realistic: why can't our government reflect both?

„Americans are willing to work – and work hard.“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: Americans are willing to work – and work hard. But right now, an awful lot of people feel there is less and less respect for the work they do. And less respect for them, period. Democrats are the party of working people. But we haven't done a good enough job showing that we get what you're going through, and that we're going to do something about it.

„Good work deserves fair pay, no matter who you are.“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: We’re going to focus on jobs and incomes. I’m going to fight to give more Americans with disabilities the chance to work alongside those without disabilities and do the same jobs for the same pay and benefits. People with disabilities shouldn’t be isolated. They should be given the chance to work with everyone else. And we’re going to eliminate the subminimum wage, which is a vestige from an ugly, ignorant past. Good work deserves fair pay, no matter who you are. Second, we’re going to work with our colleges and universities to make them more accessible to students with disabilities. To have a truly inclusive economy, we need a truly inclusive education system. So let’s raise our standards.... Third, we’re going to partner with businesses and other stakeholders to ensure those living with a disability can get hired and stay hired.... Fourth, let’s build on the success of the Americans with Disabilities Act by finally ratifying the United Nations. It has the strong backing of leaders across the political spectrum, and it’s a chance to show American values and American leadership.

„I will stop any trade deal that kills jobs or holds down wages – including the . I oppose it now, I’ll oppose it after the election, and I’ll oppose it as President.“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: I will stop any trade deal that kills jobs or holds down wages – including the. I oppose it now, I’ll oppose it after the election, and I’ll oppose it as President.... I will stand up to China and anyone else who tries to take advantage of American workers and companies. And I’m going to ramp up enforcement by appointing, for the first time, a chief trade prosecutor, I will triple the number of enforcement officers, and when countries break the rules, we won't hesitate to impose targeted tariffs.

„Women who want to work deserve to work.“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: Women who want to work deserve to work. And whenever they are denied that opportunity, it’s not fair to them – and we all lose out. In a competitive 21st century global economy, we cannot afford to leave talent on the sidelines. When we leave people out or write them off, we not only shortchange them and their dreams, we shortchange our country and our own futures.

„Puerto Ricans are citizen of America. They deserve to be treated as citizens and to be given the opportunity to get back on their feet economically.“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: The Congress must give authority to Puerto Rico to restructure its debts. Just like it has enabled states and cities to restructure their debt. And it’s a grave injustice for the Congress, led by the Republicans to be refusing to enact that opportunity within the bankruptcy law.... Puerto Ricans are citizen of America. They deserve to be treated as citizens and to be given the opportunity to get back on their feet economically.

„When there are no ceilings, the sky's the limit.“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: Tonight, we've reached a milestone in our nation's march toward a more perfect union: the first time that a major party has nominated a woman for President. Standing here as my mother's daughter, and my daughter's mother, I'm so happy this day has come. Happy for grandmothers and little girls and everyone in between. Happy for boys and men, too – because when any barrier falls in America, for anyone, it clears the way for everyone. When there are no ceilings, the sky's the limit. So let's keep going, until every one of the 161 million women and girls across America has the opportunity she deserves. Because even more important than the history we make tonight, is the history we will write together in the years ahead. Let's begin with what we're going to do to help working people in our country get ahead and stay ahead.

„I believe America thrives when the middle class thrives.“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: Here's what I believe. I believe America thrives when the middle class thrives. I believe that our economy isn't working the way it should because our democracy isn't working the way it should. That's why we need to appoint Supreme Court justices who will get money out of politics and expand voting rights, not restrict them. And if necessary we'll pass a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United! I believe American corporations that have gotten so much from our country should be just as patriotic in return. Many of them are. But too many aren't. It's wrong to take tax breaks with one hand and give out pink slips with the other. And I believe Wall Street can never, ever be allowed to wreck Main Street again. I believe in science. I believe that climate change is real and that we can save our planet while creating millions of good-paying clean energy jobs. I believe that when we have millions of hardworking immigrants contributing to our economy, it would be self-defeating and inhumane to try to kick them out. Comprehensive immigration reform will grow our economy and keep families together - and it's the right thing to do.

„Our military is a national treasure.“

— Hillary Clinton
Context: Our military is a national treasure. We entrust our commander-in-chief to make the hardest decisions our nation faces. Decisions about war and peace. Life and death. A president should respect the men and women who risk their lives to serve our country.
