Cosmopolitan just published a list of women they think could eventually become President – significantly the first female President.
Their list included some well known Senators and prominent figures like Sheryl Sandberg and Oprah.
The presidential election was nearly eight months ago now, but Cosmo’s still not over the fact that Hillary lost. So they’re trying to process it in their own special way.
Rebecca Nelson writes:
When Hillary Clinton won the election on Nov. 8, 2016 — and it was certain she was going to win — she would take the stage at New York City’s Javits Center, a building made entirely of glass. As she and women across the country celebrated her shattering the highest glass ceiling, confetti designed to look like shards of glass would rain down from the literal glass ceiling.
The confetti never fell, of course. Her supporters — especially women — were crushed that she lost. America would not have a woman president yet.
Cosmo offers a list of women they believe could make the historic achievement:
And those seven women are — drumroll, please — Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Tammy Duckworth, Sheryl Sandberg, and Oprah. Because of course Oprah.
But we can’t seem to shake this feeling that there are still some women missing from that list.
Users on Twitter quickly pointed out that the list excluded Republican women:
I don't see any republican women.

No Republican women on here. So much for diversity.

So, there are no qualified conservative women, then?
