Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton is the Democratic Party nominee for the President of the United States in the 2016 election.

She has been the 67th US secretary of state as well as the country's First Lady from 1993 to 2001.

In the latter capacity, she worked towards improving the national health care system.

As the presidential candidate, Clinton promises paid family and medical leave as well as universal, quality, affordable health care for everyone.

Hillary promises an economy that works for everyone; her election agenda talks about a fair tax system where the 'Wall Street must work for Main Street.'

Along with sticking with old allies of US and building stronger ties with Cuba, Hillary is against Iran's nuclear empowerment.

For Hillary, the issue of climate change has been a real threat, with the potential to jeopardise America's security and economy.

In matters of justice and equality, Hillary promises a pathway to full and equal citizenship through immigration reforms, while working towards protecting the rights of workers, women and LGBT communities.

Her recent uber expensive haircut while adding to her charm has whipped up a lot of media interests.
