Hillary Clinton just clinched the Democratic presidential nomination by surpassing the required delegates needed, with this, Clinton has become the first woman ever to clinch a presidential nomination for a major political party.
She will also become the third woman confirmed by a major political party to run in the general election. The other two women are Geraldine Ferraro, who ran as Democratic vice president with Walter Mondale in 1984, and Sarah Palin, who was John McCain’s Republican running mate in 2008.
Victoria Woodhull was the first woman to run for president back in 1872, nearly half a century before women even had the right to vote.
As the presumptive nominee, Clinton is now free to fully pivot to the general election. She will be turning her full attention to Donald Trump, who clinched the Republican nomination last month.
She already began doing this by attacking Trump in speeches, like a fiery one about foreign policy she gave last week.
