She became Secretary of State instead.

Clinton revealed that she was "sort of a tomboy" when she was a young girl. "I did love to play sports and played with a lot of the boys in my neighborhood," she said. She said the experience instilled a thirst for competition that served her well later.


"I wanted to be a baseball player," she told an amused audience. "I wanted to be a journalist. I know you’ll never believe that."


Clinton the story about her aspirations to be an astronaut, one of her earliest encounters with the glass ceiling.
"I think I was thirteen or so, and so I wrote to NASA to ask how I could become an astronaut. And I got a response back which was, ‘We’re not interested in women astronauts,’" she said.


She spoke of the obstacles she faced in pursuing her professional and academic goals.


"When we were growing up, there were just so many overt and implied obstacles to what young women could aspire to. There were certainly schools you couldn’t go to, scholarships you couldn’t apply for – jobs that were not available to you," Clinton said.


"You really have to prepare. And you have to get knocked down, and you have to pick yourself up, and you have to keep going," she added later.

She is definitely someone that proves that in a male dominated world women can be just as successful and powerful as a guy if they work hard, break down walls, and set high goals in spite of the bad stuff that might be said or thought about them.

Deep Cleavage and Long Legs don't hurt either ... I have neither, so I'll have to do things the old fashioned way.

Reminds me a good quote for the movie "A few Good Men"

There is nothing on this earth sexier, believe me, gentlemen, than a woman you have to salute in the morning. Promote 'em all, I say, because this is true - if you haven't gotten a blow-job from a superior officer, well, you're just letting the best in life pass you by. 'Course, my problem is, I'm a colonel, so I guess I'll just have to keep taking cold showers until they elect some gal president.

Sorry ... I couldn't help it ... one of my favorite Sexiest Quotes :grin:
