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.

„V zemi, která čelí problémům s nezaměstnaností, bohatí neplatí spravedlivě, a to jak v individuální, podnikatelské nebo jakékoliv jiné daňové sféře.“

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

—  Hillary Clinton
Presidential campaign (April 12, 2015 – 2016), 2016 Democratic National Convention (July 28, 2016), 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.

„Freedom and equality, justice and opportunity.“

—  Hillary Clinton
Presidential campaign (April 12, 2015 – 2016), 2016 Democratic National Convention (July 28, 2016), Context: Freedom and equality, justice and opportunity. We should be so proud that these words are associated with us. I have to tell you, as your Secretary of State, I went to 112 countries, and when people hear those words – they hear America.

„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
Presidential campaign (April 12, 2015 – 2016), 2016 Democratic National Convention (July 28, 2016), 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.

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

—  Hillary Clinton
Presidential campaign (April 12, 2015 – 2016), 2016 Democratic National Convention (July 28, 2016), 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.

„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.“

—  Hillary Clinton
Presidential campaign (April 12, 2015 – 2016), Speech in (August 25, 2016), Context: 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.

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

—  Hillary Clinton
Presidential campaign (April 12, 2015 – 2016), Democratic Presidential Debate in Miami (March 9, 2016), 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.

„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
Presidential campaign (April 12, 2015 – 2016), Democratic Presidential Debate in Miami (March 9, 2016), 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.

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

—  Hillary Clinton
Presidential campaign (April 12, 2015 – 2016), 2016 Democratic National Convention (July 28, 2016), 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.

„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
Presidential campaign (April 12, 2015 – 2016), Speech in Orlando, Florida (September 21, 2016), 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.

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

„America is great – because America is good.“

—  Hillary Clinton
Presidential campaign (April 12, 2015 – 2016), 2016 Democratic National Convention (July 28, 2016), 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 September 6, 1922 https://books.google.com/books?id=3sYpAAAAYAAJ&pg=RA3-PT21 issue of the Herald and Presbyter. The line is sometime falsely attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville.

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

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