business leaders and entrepreneurs Biography - Information

Hillary Clinton is most famous for being the wife of the 42nd President of the United States of America, Bill Clinton. She has also pursued her own career in politics more recently by becoming a Senator for New York. Senator Clinton is also running to be nominated for the presidential election in 2008 for the Democratic party.

She was born as Hillary Diane Rodham in Chicago, Illinois on the 26th of October, 1947. Her parents were the homemaker Dorothy Rodham and the small businessman Hugh Rodham. Hillary also has two brothers: Hugh Ellsworth Rodham, Jr. and Tony Rodham.

Hillary graduated from the Wellesley College and Yale Law School. She was interested in politics from an early age, with a leaning towards Republican views at sixteen years of age. It was during her studies at the Wellesley College in Massachusetts that she began to think more liberally, and became a member of the Democratic Party. She graduated with a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree from the Yale Law School in 1973 after writing her thesis on the rights of children.

Hillary also met the long haired Bill Clinton while studying at the Yale Law School. The couple married in 1975 and relocated to Little Rock, Arkansas. Hillary Clinton continued to pursue her own career after marriage. Some of her achievements included becoming the first woman to be a full partner in the prestigious Rose Law Firm, becoming chair at the United States Legal Services Corporation in 1977, heading the American Bar Association Committee on Women in the Profession, and being Chair of the Board of the Children’s Defense Fund from 1986 through to 1991.

"I never thought I would end up being the Senator from New York. I never thought that the long haired, bearded guy I married in law school would end up being President". Hillary Rodham Clinton

From 1978 through to 1980 she became the First Lady of Arkansas when her husband Bill Clinton became the Governor of Arkansas. She lost the position for two years after her husband failed to be reelected. They were back in the statehouse in 1982 after her husband regained his position as the Governor of Arkansas.

When her husband became the American President in 1992, Hillary Rodham Clinton took on the title of the "First Lady of the United States". She was not the usual First Lady that simply smiled and looked good for the cameras. No First Lady of the United States before her had held a post graduate degree and very few have had as successful a career as Hillary had. hillary clinton campaign banner

As First Lady she continued to live an active life, using her power to bring attention to causes that she was passionate about, including the rights of women and children worldwide. Her high profile led to negative remarks from the media and political critics, like "Billary" and "Co-Presidents".

The marriage of Hillary and Bill Clinton became strained in 1998 after a brief affair that Bill Clinton had with the Whitehouse intern Monica Lewinsky. The media attention was intense and relentless, but the couple have remained together and continue to have a strong relationship.

Hillary Rodham Clinton continued in politics after her husband's presidency. She served time as a Senator in the state of New York for the Democratic Party from 2001 through to 2009.
