When Hillary Clinton announced that she'd be running for president in 2016, we were so excited to finally see a woman campaigning to become the Commander In Chief. However we couldn't help but ask ourselves, if we could nominate any woman for president, would Hillary still be our number one choice?
So, we posed the question to you, our faithful readers, and got some interesting answers. Many of you suggested successful female politicians, and some of our favorite entertainers, were also thrown into the mix. Above all though, the answers showed one thing: America is ready for a female president and we've got plenty of qualified candidates to choose from.
Now without further ado, here are all of the woman you think deserve a term or two inside the Oval Office.
Condoleezza Rice certainly has the experience needed for presidency and already knows her way around the White House. Rice served as the 66th Secretary of State under President George W. Bush and held the title of National Security Adviser as well.
Nominated by: Brynna L. and Darlene P.

One of our favorite funny ladies got a fare share of nominations from our Facebook followers. Fey already played a politician on TV, why not have her play the part in real life?

The former governor of Alaska was very close to making it to the White House last election, maybe the second time will be the charm for this maverick momma?

Nominated by: Blaine P., Viki G., Drango G. and Michael B.
Although Jolie is primarily known as an actress and mother to a very large and very adorable broad of children, she's also an accomplished humanitarian whose work has positively impacted many people's lives. She's been a UNHRC Goodwill Ambassador for over a decade and in 2012 was appointed a special envoy. Plus we'd be extremely interested to see President Jolie's foreign policy.

We have a feeling that this pretty woman's gorgeous smile would look great in a presidential portrait.

As a US Senator for Massachusetts, Warren already knows her way around Capitol Hill, so it's not too much of a stretch to imagine her as commander in chief. The former Harvard Law School professor, is known as an avid consumer protection advocate and for her progressive politics.

It seems that Hillary, after all, is still the favored female candidate for presidential office for many people. Which is good news, considering she's the only one for sure running in 2016.
