She graduated from Wellesley College in 1969 and Yale Law School in 1973, where she met William Jefferson “Bill” Clinton. They married in 1975 and moved to Little Rock, Arkansas. While Bill served a total of five terms as Governor of Arkansas, Clinton, a partner at the Rose Law Firm, began her lifelong mission advocating on behalf of women and children. In addition to co-founding the Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families, she also served on the boards of several other related non-profits.After Bill’s election to the Presidency in 1992, Clinton became First Lady of the United States in January 1993. She spearheaded a failed campaign to reform America’s health care system and endured criticism from opponents for her hair, her pantsuits, and for acting more like a “co-president” than a first lady.In 2000, she became the first sitting First Lady to run for office, and from 2001-2009 she served as the U.S. Senator from New York. After she lost to Barack Obama in a very close race for the Democratic presidential nomination, Obama appointed her to his cabinet as U.S. Secretary of State.Buy a copy to keep reading!CHAPTER OUTLINEEverything You Need to Know About Your Congressman, Hillary Clinton+ Introduction+ Brief biography of Hillary Clinton+ Key Votes by Senator Clinton+ Hillary Clinton’s Political Positions+ ...and much more
