The prospect of a Hillary Clinton presidency has UFO enthusiasts excited because of her positions on uncovering and publicly releasing facts about alien life.
Some have even dubbed her the first "E.T. candidate."
"Hillary has embraced this issue with an absolutely unprecedented level of interest in American politics," alien researcher Joseph G. Buchman told The New York Times.
A Times report examines Clinton's statements on aliens and UFOs, including a recent interview during which she corrected late-night host Jimmy Kimmel regarding his use of a term related to alien life.
"You know, there's a new name," Clinton told Kimmel when he specifically asked her about UFOs. "It's unexplained aerial phenomenon. "UAP. That's the latest nomenclature."
The remark apparently came after Clinton was briefed by her presidential campaign chairman John Podesta regarding alien life. Clinton's interest, at least publicly, in aliens has a deep history.
She was photographed holding a book about extraterrestrial life in 1995, and has said on the campaign trail she intends to open up the nation's UFO files and possibly make them public, barring any national security issues.
Podesta, it seems, also has an infatuation with UFOs. He has made several statements about alien life, including a tweet
last year that read, "Finally, my biggest failure of 2014: Once again not securing the #disclosure of the UFO files. #thetruthisstilloutthere."
Podesta also wrote a forward to a 2010 book about UFOs.
At the end of last year, Clinton told the Conway Daily Sun
that in regards to UFOs and alien life, she intends to "get to the bottom of it" if she becomes president.
