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.

„I have a view that I just have to do the best I can, get the results I can, make a difference in people’s lives, and hope that people see that I’m fighting for them“

—  Hillary Clinton
Context: I am not a natural politician, in case you haven’t noticed, like my husband or President Obama. So I have a view that I just have to do the best I can, get the results I can, make a difference in people’s lives, and hope that people see that I’m fighting for them and that I can improve conditions economically and other ways that will benefit them and their families.

„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.

„You don’t make America great by getting rid of everything that made America great.“

—  Hillary Clinton
Context: I was the first one to call him out. I called him out when he was calling Mexicans rapists.... His demagoguery, his trafficking in prejudice and paranoia has no place in our political system. Especially from somebody running for president who couldn’t decide whether or not to disavow the and David Duke. So people can draw their own conclusions about him. I will just end by saying this. You don’t make America great by getting rid of everything that made America great. I think it’s un-American. I think what he has promoted is not at all in keeping with American values. When asked if Donald Trump is racist.

„The great story here for anybody willing to find it, write about it and explain it is this vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced for president.“

—  Hillary Clinton
Context: From my perspective, this is part of the continuing political campaign against my husband… I mean, look at the very people who are involved in this. They have popped up in other settings. The great story here for anybody willing to find it, write about it and explain it is this vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced for president. Reacting to the truthful reports that her husband, Bill Clinton, had an affair with White House intern, Monica Lewinsky; Interview with Matt Lauer on NBC's Today show (27 January 1998)

„Keeping our nation safe and honoring the people who do it will be my highest priority.“

—  Hillary Clinton
Context: You want a leader who understands we are stronger when we work with our allies around the world and care for our veterans here at home. Keeping our nation safe and honoring the people who do it will be my highest priority.

„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.“

—  Hillary Clinton
Context: 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. That’s one reason why I care so much about supporting working parents. It’s one reason why I’m such a strong supporter of comprehensive immigration reform.... It’s also one reason why we’ve got to break down barriers of systemic racism, including under-investment that has held communities of color back for generations. That’s part of building an inclusive economy, too. And it’s why I believe we need to do more to help young people, who are left behind in the wake of the Great Recession, find those strategies and opportunities that will get them moving ahead again. And we’ve got to help older Americans who’ve displaced by automation and outsourcing in our changing economy.

„It truly is up to us. We have to decide whether we all will work together so we all can rise together.“

—  Hillary Clinton
Context: My friends, we've come to Philadelphia – the birthplace of our nation – because what happened in this city 240 years ago still has something to teach us today. We all know the story. But we usually focus on how it turned out - and not enough on how close that story came to never being written at all. When representatives from 13 unruly colonies met just down the road from here, some wanted to stick with the King. Some wanted to stick it to the king, and go their own way. The revolution hung in the balance. Then somehow they began listening to each other … compromising … finding common purpose. And by the time they left Philadelphia, they had begun to see themselves as one nation. That's what made it possible to stand up to a King. That took courage. They had courage. Our Founders embraced the enduring truth that we are stronger together. America is once again at a moment of reckoning. Powerful forces are threatening to pull us apart. Bonds of trust and respect are fraying. And just as with our founders, there are no guarantees. It truly is up to us. We have to decide whether we all will work together so we all can rise together.

„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.“

—  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.

„For all Americans. Because I believe we are stronger together. It’s a vision for the future rooted in our values and reflected in a rising generation of young people who are the most open, diverse, and connected we’ve ever seen. ... Let’s keep moving forward together. Let’s stand up against prejudice and paranoia. Let’s prove once again, that America is great because is America is good.“

„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? Remarks to the Senate's Council on Foreign Relations (31 October 2006) http://clinton.senate.gov/news/statements/details.cfm?id=265808&&

„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.

„That took courage. They had courage. Our Founders embraced the enduring truth that we are stronger together.“

„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.
