Clinton at a Canadian speech said that such an election would be important for the country.
According to Politico, in the video of which was posted on YouTube, Clinton said she really did hope that the country has a woman president in her lifetime.
Clinton in Toronto, before a women-centered event on Thursday, said that whether it`s next time or the next time after that, it really depends on women stepping up and subjecting themselves to the political process, which is very difficult, the report said.
