Hillary Rodham Clinton
Although, Hillary Clinton has made statements that she wants a break from the public sector, it may be that the break will be somewhat short based upon what her husband stated:
New York Post - 2 April 2012Former President Bill Clinton said Monday he would be “happy” if his wife Hillary decided to run for the presidency in 2016 but insisted the decision was “entirely up to her.
Fox News - April 2, 2012
Hillary Clinton, who was defeated for the Democratic nomination by President Obama in 2008, has repeatedly said she does not intend to seek office again once she ends her stint as secretary of state — but rumors of a 2016 run are never far from the surface.
“I believe that she’s being absolutely honest with you when she says she doesn’t think she’ll go back into politics. But if she comes home, and we do this foundation stuff for the rest of our lives, I’ll be happy; if she changes her mind and decides to run, I’ll be happy,” Bill Clinton told “Good Morning America,”
Ever since Margaret Thatcher was prime minister of the United Kingdom, I have felt that it is likely that the USA would end up with a female president or at least a highly influential woman in a top level federal government job. And Hillary Clinton has been fulfilling the latter for over three years (as also have female Supreme Court justices, etc.).
She has stated that she plans to step down as US Secretary of State after the November 2012 elections. That would give her a year or two of rest and time to prepare, should she decide to run for US president in 2016.
As far back as 2006 (News of The Churches of God) and 2007 (News of The Churches of God) I also commented about a possible Hillary Clinton presidency, and feel that it remains a possibility–though not a certainty.
Since those of us in groups like the Living Church of God do not vote in these elections, why am I mentioning the possibility of a woman president?
Because I believe that it will partially fulfill a prophecy in Isaiah 3:12:
As for My people, children are their oppressors, And women rule over them. O My people! Those who lead you cause you to err, And destroy the way of your paths…
Of course, women are influential in the English-speaking nations and it is not absolutely required that the USA itself have a woman president, but I do feel that if we do get one, that this would be a partial, but significant, fulfillment of that prophecy.
In terms of voting, the so-called “gender gap” helped Barack Obama win last time (he received a higher percentage of the female vote than did his opponent John McCain). Some suspect that the only way for Barack Obama to win re-election in 2012 is if a higher percentage of women vote for him again. So, in that way, women have also been ruling over the USA.
Both biblical and Roman Catholic prophecies indicate the destruction of the English-speaking peoples and I would not be surprised if a major attack by the European Beast power will occur during a female presidency (though it could well happen before then).
