Senator Hillary Clinton
New York Senator Hillary Clinton shares her husband's global perspective.

"Right now the greatest threat to world peace is intolerance cloaked in religion," Senator Clinton says. "It's people who believe that their religious views are the only right ones, and therefore, any means that is available to them—including flying planes into towers or planting bombs in subways—that somehow they are permitted to do that because they're acting in the name of a religion. That gives them the justification to wreak havoc and violence."

The Senator stresses that we must still continue to have open minds when it comes to our views of people around the world. "Not that we are going to give up what we believe, but in the complex world in which we live, we have to recognize that not everybody will see the world the same way."

Despite the challenges our nation faces today, Senator Clinton believes it is an exciting time to be a woman in America. "But to those to whom much is given, much is expected," she says. "So as American women, I think we have a special obligation to vote. Let your voice be heard. A citizen always wins because you've participated."
