There are many rules regarding the United States presidential elections that must be followed to successfully elect one of the potential candidates. The proper phrase used for the candidates wishing to enter the presidential election is natural born citizen. “As directed by the Constitution , a presidential candidate must be a natural born citizen of the United States, a resident for 14 years, and 35 years of age or older.” (Requirements for President of the United States, n.d.) When candidates are considering placing their name on the docket they must supply the government with the proper evidence to prove their continuous citizenship and origin of birth. Hillary Clinton ran for president in 2008 and again in 2016, however, she has never won a presidential election to date. Although, she was the 67 th secretary of state from 2009-2013 under her running mate Barack Obama, which she lost the presidential election to. Hillary Clinton was the first female to ever run as a presidential candidate and Hillary Clinton was however born in Chicago, Illinois which is in fact in the United States of America.
