WASHINGTON – On Tuesday, November the 8th, Americans will for the first time be able to cast a ballot with a woman at the top of the ticket for a major political party.

For some women, the prospect of a female president is momentous, but for others, it’s unremarkable.

“I take it for granted. It’s no big deal for me; it’s the way it should be” said a 100-year-old Alyse Laemmle.

However, Kiana Wonga sees it as inspiration.

“It’s really inspiring because it shows you that you can be whatever you want when you grow up, like a lawyer or the president or congress person.”

Pat Ramos agrees, “Oh, it’s incredible, yeah. I think for our daughters, especially, and young girls growing up, just like President Obama, what he did for four young black men in America. I think has the same significance.”

For many it’s a historic moment.

“I think it would be cool. I mean, I don’t really think it matters the gender as long as it’s a good president” said Lori Hindle.
Marla Mcgaw says, “Oh, yeah, I think it’s historic that this will be the first time. I’m hoping that she’ll win actually. I think it’s fantastic that we’re going to have the first woman president, I’m hoping.”

“I feel like it’s significant but it’s not significant because she’s a woman. Like, I want the first woman president to earn it. I don’t want her to just get it because she’s a woman” Said Teegan Kempe.

The Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton expressed gratitude to her supporters.

“Thanks to you we have reached a milestone. The first time in our nation’s history that a woman will be major party nominees for President of the United States.”

On the eve of Clinton becoming the first woman to be nominated for the presidency by a major US party, first lady Michelle Obama said her own daughters could be encouraged by Clinton’s path.
