Kirsten Gillibrand Running For President?

Could One of These Girls Become President One Day?

New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand has joined Hillary Clinton on the list of women who could one day become president. This week, political observers speculated that Gillibrand, who replaced Hillary Clinton in the Senate when she became secretary of state, is setting herself up nicely for a presidential run. And while Gillibrand probably wouldn't run against Hillary, she has solid fundraising skills, moderate credibility, and strong political will. She's definitely someone to keep an eye on. Whoever ends up being America's first female president, the girls in this new ad from EMILY's List hope to follow in her footsteps. The group, which gives financial backing to pro-choice and Democratic female candidates, has started a new campaign called Madam President.

In the spot released today, well-spoken and admittedly adorable young girls take the presidential podium. "My mom told me I could be anything I wanted," says one of the mini commanders in chief. Another asks incredulously, "Can you imagine? No woman president? They were all boys!" EMILY's List President Stephanie Schriock hopes the campaign will keep momentum going and lead to a woman topping the 2016 ticket. She said: "We do not know if Hillary is going to run, but we are hopeful that she may. And if she chooses not to, our options are far from exhausted." Watch now. The cute kids won't disappoint.
