US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (L) is welcomed by India's West Bengal state Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee at the Writers' Building, which houses the state secretariat, in Kolkata on May 7, 2012. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said May 7 she hoped the United States would elect a woman as president during her lifetime, but again rejected calls for her to make a new White House run. Clinton said that women still suffered from a 'glass ceiling' in politics, complaining that media write of the 'pastel hues' in women leaders' wardrobes even when they are talking about defence policy.
