The story of the first woman in America to serve in a presidential capacity has gone viral.
In a new documentary, “Light Em Up,” the late Mary Ellen O’Donnell tells the story of a former doctor who became a presidential candidate and the challenges of running for office in the United States.
She is a Democrat who lost the election and has become a surrogate for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign.
“This woman was born with the opportunity to be president,” said O’Brien.
“But she decided to be a doctor and she made a mistake.”
O’Donnell served in the Clinton administration in the 1990s and was elected to the Senate in 1994.
Her husband, James, served as a Republican governor from 1994-2002.
In 2014, she resigned from the Senate and was sworn in as the first female president of the United State.
O’Brien is the first black woman to serve as the nation’s chief executive.
The film chronicles her journey as a woman and the fight to become the first ever female president.
“I was going to go into politics to try to get her elected, and that’s why I started the doc, because I wanted to share her story with the American people,” said James O’Keefe, who directed the documentary.
“She is the most significant female president in American history.
It’s her legacy that will live on.”
O”Donnell and O’Hara are both African American women who became elected to office.
O’Nell was born in Mississippi in 1859, but she grew up in Massachusetts, where she graduated from the University of Massachusetts in 1863.
She then became a licensed physician, and she served for six years in the Massachusetts Senate.
O”Nell also served as the state’s attorney general and the secretary of health for Massachusetts.
“In the Senate, she was a fierce champion of women’s rights, and I think she’s also a champion of the rights of all women,” said Charles Rangel, the Democratic chairman of the Massachusetts state Senate.
“That’s what I admire most about her.”
“I am proud to be Mary Ellen and proud to represent my state,” said the president of O’Reilly Associates, a consulting firm.
O”Nella and O”Hara have a history that spans generations.
In 1973, she married James O”Donnell, who became the first African American president.
In 1984, O’Neill became the third female to serve a full four-year term as governor of Massachusetts.
She also served in a number of other government positions, including as a United Nations representative.
In 1992, O”Neill was elected as a state senator from Massachusetts and became the state senator for the 7th District in the state.
O�Neill later served as governor and senator.
“Mary Ellen and I share a special bond,” said Senate President Stanley Rosenberg, who was the first white woman elected to a major political office in Massachusetts.OKeefe, whose documentary is scheduled to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on Friday, said she hopes the documentary will raise awareness about O’Neil and other women who have made political careers.OBrien has been active in politics since she was 17, serving on the Massachusetts House of Representatives and the state Senate for 18 years.
“There’s no way you could have imagined that at 17 years old I would become a senator, a governor, a state legislator, a US senator and now I am a presidential nominee,” said Robert O’Sullivan, who is O’Neal’s nephew.
“My aunt and uncle were very strong advocates for women’s civil rights.
I would have loved to see Mary Ellen’s story told.”OKeefe has also been active on social media, posting pictures of O”Neil with the hashtag #MaryEllenO’Neal.
She said her mother was a nurse, and her sister and brother were doctors.
Orey was elected in 1994, winning the primary.
She later became the Democratic nominee for governor, winning by about 60,000 votes.
She lost to Republican David Paterson in November.
