Who is Hillary Clinton?



 
                                                         Mrs. Hillary Clinton

Yeah, maybe you already know Hillary Clinton as an American female politician, former first lady of the United States, former Secretary of State, former Senator and lots more. Well, you are right on all counts. She is much more than all these. No doubt you also know she is a good house wife, mother and grandmother. She is a thoroughbred American on very many counts as well.

According to Wikipedia, “Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton (born October 26, 1947), is an American politician and the presumptive nominee of the Democratic Party for President of the United States in the 2016 election. She is the first female candidate to gain that status in a major American political party. She served as the 67th United States Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013, the junior United States Senator representing New York from 2001 to 2009, First Lady of the United States during the presidency of Bill Clinton from 1993 to 2001, and First Lady of Arkansas during the governorship of  Bill Clinton from 1979 to 1981 and from 1983 to 1992.

Clinton grew up in Chicago and the neighboring suburb of Park Ridge, Illinois. She attended Wellesley College, graduating in 1969, and earned a J.D. from Yale Law School in 1973. After serving as a congressional legal counsel, she moved to Arkansas, marrying Bill Clinton in 1975. In 1977, she co-founded Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families. She was appointed the first female chair of the Legal Services Corporation in 1978, and, the following year, became the first woman partner at Rose Law Firm. As First Lady of Arkansas (1979–81, 1983–92), she led a task force whose recommendations helped reform Arkansas's public schools, and served on the boards of corporations including Wall-Mart.

As First Lady of the United States, Clinton led the failed effort to enact the Clinton health plan of 1993. In 1997 and 1999, she helped create programs for children's health insurance, adoption, and foster care. The only first lady to have been subpoenaed, she faced a federal grand jury in 1996 regarding the Whitewater controversy; no charges were brought against her related to this or any other controversy in her life. Her marriage endured the Lewinsky scandal of 1998, and overall her role as first lady drew a polarized response from the public.”
