Hilary Rodham is the current president of the United States of America, belonging to the Democratic Party, the 45th to hold that office, and the second woman to do so, as well as the second consecutive female president. Having been vice-president to Geraldine Ferraro in 2000, she was fully expected to replace her as Ferraro was considered to be terminally ill with multiple myeloma at the time. Ferraro died in 2003, and Rodham became president by default at her death, then won the 2004 US Presidential election and was re-elected in 2008. She is therefore likely to become the longest serving president since Franklin Roosevelt in 1945 and is unusual among American presidents in that she is unmarried, having divorced her husband in the 1990s after his serial affairs. As such, her position is a sign of the decline of the religious right and religion in general in the US.
