1 history

as a little girl, hillary clinton wanted to be an astronaut. she wrote a letter to NASA and they informed her women weren't allowed.

as a little girl, i always pretended to be first lady, never president, because my imagination didn't extend to the impossible.

tonight, i imagined jmills' three-month-old daughter might grow up with a female president. and i was struck by how extraordinary that possibility is.
