Hillary Clinton

Data de nascimento: 26. Outubro 1947

Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton é uma advogada e política norte-americana. Natural do Illinois, graduou-se em ciência política pela Wellesley College em 1969, onde tornou-se a primeira estudante oradora de turma, e, em 1973, recebeu o grau de Juris Doctor pela Faculdade de Direito de Yale. Depois de um período como assessora jurídica do Congresso, mudou-se para o Arkansas e casou-se com Bill Clinton em 1975. Em 1977, co-fundou a associação Advogados em Defesa das Crianças e Famílias do Arkansas, tornou-se a primeira presidente da Corporação de Serviços Jurídicos em 1978, e foi nomeada a primeira sócia do escritório Rose Law Firm em 1979. Enquanto era a primeira-dama do Arkansas, de 1979 a 1981 e de 1983 a 1992, liderou uma força-tarefa que reformou o sistema de ensino do Estado, ao mesmo tempo em que fazia parte do conselho de administração da Walmart, entre outras corporações.

Como primeira-dama dos Estados Unidos, sua maior iniciativa, o Plano de assistência médica de Clinton de 1993, não conseguiu reunir apoio político necessário para ser aprovado. Em 1997 e 1999, desempenhou um papel de liderança na defesa da criação do Programa de Seguro de Saúde para Crianças, da Lei da Adoção e da Segurança Familiar e da Lei dos Adotivos Independentes. Foi a única primeira-dama a ter sido intimada judicialmente, e testemunhou perante um júri federal em 1996 sobre o controverso caso Whitewater, embora nunca tenham sido feitas acusações formais contra ela e seu marido relacionadas a esta ou outras investigações realizadas durante o mandato presidencial de Bill. O seu casamento foi um assunto de muita especulação após o escândalo Lewinsky em 1998, que culminou no impeachment e na posterior absolvição do presidente.

Após mudar-se para Nova Iorque, foi eleita senadora em 2000, tornando-se a primeira senadora nova-iorquina e a primeira primeira-dama a concorrer para um cargo político eletivo. Após os ataques de 11 de setembro, votou a favor e apoiou as ações militares no Afeganistão e no Iraque, mas posteriormente se opôs à conduta do governo de George W. Bush na Guerra do Iraque, bem como também se opôs a maioria das políticas nacionais de Bush. Em 2006, foi reeleita senadora com 67% dos votos. Logo depois, concorreu para a nomeação democrata na eleição presidencial de 2008, e ganhou mais primárias e delegados do que qualquer outra candidata na história do país, mas acabou perdendo a nomeação para Barack Obama.

Como secretária de Estado do governo Obama entre janeiro de 2009 e fevereiro de 2013, esteve na vanguarda da resposta do país à Primavera Árabe e defendeu a intervenção militar na Líbia. Assumiu a responsabilidade por falhas de segurança relacionadas com o ataque à embaixada em Bengazi em 2012, mas defendeu suas ações pessoais em resposta ao incidente. Hillary visitou mais países do que qualquer outro secretário de Estado, incentivou o empoderamento das mulheres em todos os lugares e usou as mídias sociais para transmitir a mensagem dos EUA no exterior. Após deixar o cargo no final do primeiro mandato de Obama, publicou o seu quinto livro e fez várias palestras antes de anunciar que iria novamente tentar conquistar a candidatura democrata para o cargo de presidente na eleição de 2016.

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

—  Hillary Clinton

Remarks to the Senate's Council on Foreign Relations (31 October 2006) http://clinton.senate.gov/news/statements/details.cfm?id=265808&&
Senate years (2001 – January 19, 2007)
Contexto: 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?

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

—  Hillary Clinton

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

„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

Presidential campaign (April 12, 2015 – 2016), First presidential debate (September 26, 2016)
Contexto: 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.

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

—  Hillary Clinton

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

„America is great – because America is good.“

—  Hillary Clinton

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

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

—  Hillary Clinton

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