Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton declared her desire to build an America “where a father can tell his daughter, ‘Yes, you can be anything you want to be, even president of the United States'” during a speech at the Iowa Democratic Party Hall of Fame Dinner on Friday.
Hillary said, “I’m running to make our country work for you, and for every American. For the struggling, the striving, and the successful. For the factory workers and the food servers who have taken care of us tonight. For the veterans who served our country. For the farmers who feed us, and the small business owners who take a risk. For the nurses who work the night shift, and the truckers who drive for hours. I am running for everyone who’s ever been knocked down, but refused to be knocked out. I’m running for you. We’re going to build an America where we don’t leave anyone out or anyone behind. Where if you work hard, you will do your part and get ahead, and where a father can tell his daughter, ‘Yes, you can be anything you want to be, even president of the United States.'”
