Hillary Clinton Rally

While we're still far from making any final decisions with regard to the 2016 presidential election, the Democratic Party certainly has a solid contender in Hillary Clinton. It's fair to say that Clinton has garnered both massive amounts of support as well as massive amounts of backlash and controversy.
