SOUNDBITE: (English) Hillary Clinton, Former Secretary of State"Let me say this, hypothetically speaking, I really do hope that we have a woman president in my lifetime. And whether it's next time or the next time after that, it really depends on women stepping and subjecting themselves to the political process, which is very difficult. You know, one of my great predecessors, Eleanor Roosevelt, said as far back as the 1920s, women want to be in politics, they need to grow skin as thick as a Rhinoceros, and I think there is still truth to that, so you have to step up, you have to dare to compete, you have to get into the process and then the country, our country, has to take that leap of faith. We did have a historic election with the election of President Obama, which was incredibly important for all the obvious reasons given our past. And I hope that we will see a woman elected because I think it would send exactly the right historic signal to girls, women as well as boys and men. And I will certainly vote for the right woman to be president (cheers, HRC smiles)."
