It was announced last Wednesday, Hilary Clinton is running for president in 2016. There has been a lot of response to this announcement, some bad and some good. This is great, the fact that our country has progressed to the point that a woman has gained the courage to run for president. Although this is great there has been a lot of people who have not progressed with the country. People will find anything they can to try and tear down progress, which is what is currently happening. The email scandal that Hilary Clinton is a part of is something that might just ruin her campaign. Hilary Clinton has been on the defensive this week over the revelation that she exclusively used a private email account while serving as secretary of state. The 2016 presidential candidate has tried to put out the flames, but important questions about the controversy remain unaddressed. This is a disaster for her chances at president, as if she didn’t already have enough to worry about, this is something extra being thrown at her. The fact that Hilary is a woman is a huge hurdle for Americans to look past, but now they have an excuse to blatantly oppose and have a good reason to. Hilary has a lo of cleaning up to do in order to clean up her campaign for 2016. She needs to start by telling the truth about what happened to the emails instead of continuing to beat around the bush hoping this will just go away, because it won’t.
