    5. Woodhull was the first woman to run for president.
    In April 1870, just two months after opening her brokerage firm, Woodhull announced her candidacy for president of the United States. She campaigned on a platform of women’s suffrage, regulation of monopolies, nationalization of railroads, an eight-hour workday, direct taxation, abolition of the death penalty and welfare for the poor, among other things. In addition to promoting herself in her weekly newspaper, Woodhull organized an Equal Rights Party, which nominated her at its May 1872 convention. Famed abolitionist Frederick Douglass was selected as her running mate. He never acknowledged it, however, and in fact campaigned for Republican Ulysses S. Grant. Woodhull was furthermore hurt by embarrassing details about her private life, which came to light during a lawsuit that her mother brought against her second husband. In the end, Woodhull’s name appeared on ballots in at least some states. No one knows how many votes she received because they apparently weren’t counted.

    Rev. Clinton did not say she was the first woman nominated. Her is the quote of what she said:

    "The first time in our nation's history, that a woman will be a major party's nominee for president," Clinton said.

    Note, she said major party. So you source selectively lies at worst or misdirects to attempt to justify their own bias.

    I am not at all happy with either candidate, but come one be honest. Selectively editing can show a person saying anything. Happens with Bible quotes all the time to prove an un-biblical point. She will say enough to give you truthful criticisms. Don't rely on selectively editing. OK?
