That seems to be Secretary Clinton's thesis after having had her selection confirmed as the Democrat nominee for the Presidency.
As reasons go, I think it's slightly worse than "Vote for me, I have no filter and I have made a lot of money."* Maybe a lot worse, since she's asking voters to vote so she can make a record, like being the first woman to climb Everest or trek to the sources of the Nile. Valentine Tereshkova and Sally Ride were inevitable; however, the inevitability was not theirs but their role. Likewise, some day the U. S. will have a woman as President. She does not necessarily have to be Hillary Clinton.
* "Vote for me, I'm good on trade and I have been a Governor," is looking better and better, if you ask me.
