Your Favorite Powerful Woman of 2009 Is...

She may not have won the presidency, but Hillary Clinton's leadership as Secretary of State has garnered her your appreciation and the Sugar Award for favorite powerful woman of 2009.

While she spent the better part of 2008 campaigning across the US, this year Hillary campaigned for America's interests around the world. When asked why she's such an inspiration to women, Hillary told Vogue:

"Well, I don't really understand it myself. . . . So many women feel like I'm on their side. I somehow, through my life or their perception of me, give them courage to do things. And I think it's also that, whether I am meant to or not, I challenge assumptions about women. I do make some people uncomfortable, which I'm well aware of, but that's just part of coming to grips with what I believe is still one of the most important pieces of unfinished business in human history — empowering women to be able to stand up for themselves."

I can't wait to see what next year has in store for Hillary!

I love the look of a business suit ( jacket and skirt) with a sexy top under the jacket. I also Love women who dress up jeans. Pull some jeans on (they must fit well so you don't look like a street walker), a hot top, maybe a little jacket and bring on the sexy, classy heels!!! Love the Question, I'll star it.

I loooooooove Hillary Clinton! Love her! She is truly a powerful woman and has done more for feminism than just about anyone else! I sobbed when Obama got the nomination instead of Hillary, but I was profoundly proud that I was able to vote for a woman! She is my idol!

She is an inspiration to me. She's smart and influential. She certainly gets consulted on policy. I wonder what the country would be like right now if she had been elected.

The most problematic thing about this to me is the notion that Clinton is at all powerful. She's a figurehead. I rather thought that President Obama appointed her as Secretary of State to get her out of the way; I don't believe for a second that she gets consulted on policy.

I agree, this is really funny. Even as a Democrat, I have no respect or admiration for Hillary Clinton.
