Many shades of Hillary Clinton: Ex-Republican, wannabe astronaut to aspiring first female US Prez

New York, Nov 8: So, who is Hillary Clinton?

All we can easily say is that the Democratic Presidential nominee is one of the most multi-faceted political personalities of our times.

Hillary Clinton

The 69-year-old politician wears many hats with ease.

On Twitter, Clinton describes herself as a wife, mom, grandma, women+kids advocate, FLOTUS, Senator, SecState, hair icon, pantsuit aficionado and 2016 presidential candidate.

In fact, as a 14-year-old girl, Clinton wrote a letter to the NASA asking what she needed to do to become an astronaut.

The agency's response was "thank you but we don't take girls".

Thankfully, the space organisation has since changed its policies and become more gender neutral, sending dozens of women into space.

Now, the question is--will American elect Clinton as its first female President?

She started her political journey as a conservative activist for the Republican Party.

Later, Clinton switched her political affiliation and became a Democratic leader.

She did her law at Yale University, where she met her husband and former US President Bill Clinton.

Hillary became the first lady of the US after her husband became the President in 1992. She held the title twice when Bill was re-elected as the President in 1996.

In a few hours from now, if Clinton is elected as the 45th President of the US, history will be created as the nation will get its first female President.
