(WOMENSENEWS)–When the story of our time is written, 2008 will go down in history as the Year of Hillary.

Hillary Rodham Clinton didn’t win the White House, but she became the nation’s first truly viable female candidate to stake out a front-runner’s position in the run for the presidency.

Her entry alone made the race noteworthy and signified a turning point for all women: Win or lose, after the Year of Hillary has ended, American women will no longer face questions of "if" but only the certainty of "when."

Women’s eNews also kept an eye on lower-ticket races involving women and the women’s political agenda during a decisive–and historic–election year.
