Hillary Clinton proved with this election cycle that any woman can run for president of the United States and become heartbeats away from obtaining the presidency. Even though we didn’t elect the first woman president in this election, there’s no need to worry; there are two women who have a fighting chance of becoming president within the next eight years, should they choose to run.
The first woman who could win the presidency is the Republican South Carolina governor Nikki Haley. She was born to Sikh immigrants in 1972 on January 20th and was the youngest governor in the entire country for a time until this year when Missouri Governor Eric Greitens and New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu both got sworn into office at the age of 42. She is the first Indian-American and the first woman to hold the title of governor in South Carolina. She is also the second Indian-American to become a governor in the US after Louisiana’s former governor Bobby Jindal.
