Hillary Clinton BIO

Hillary Diane Rodham was born on October 26, 1947, the first child of Dorothy and Hugh Rodham. Hillary and her brothers, Hugh and Tony, grew up in Park Ridge, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago.
After graduating from Wellesley College in 1969, Hillary entered Yale Law School where she met Bill Clinton. In 1974, at the height of the Watergate scandal, Hillary worked on the staff assisting the House Judiciary Committee with its investigation of the Nixon administration. She later joined Bill Clinton in Arkansas, where he was about to embark on a remarkable political career.
Bill and Hillary were married in 1975. Hillary served on the faculty of the University of Arkansas Law School before joining the Rose Law firm in 1976. Bill and Hillary became parents with the birth of their daughter, Chelsea, in 1980. In the meantime, her husband was elected Attorney General and then governor of Arkansas. During her 12 years as First Lady of Arkansas, Hillary Clinton remained a strong advocate for the welfare of children and higher educational standards.
When Hillary became the nation's First Lady, she continued to play an active role. In 1993, she chaired the Task Force on Health Care Reform. Although her involvement in shaping public policies drew criticism, she remained a determined advocate for the rights and welfare of children and women throughout the world.
In 2000, Hillary Clinton was elected Senator from the state of New York. She was the first First Lady to be elected to the United States Senate. Hillary won re-election as New York Senator in 2006. In 2007, Hillary began her campaign for President of the United States. When Barack Obama won the nomination, Hillary supported the Obama/Biden ticket, and they went on to win the presidency. She was nominated by President-elect Obama to the position of Secretary of State, and was sworn in as the 67th Secretary of State of the United States on January 21, 2009. She served for four years.
In 2015, Hillary Clinton announced her second campaign for President of the United States. She ran with Virginia senator and former governor Tim Kaine as her Vice Presidential candidate. At the 2016 Democratic National Convention she became the first woman to accept a major party's nomination for President. While Hillary won the popular vote of the 2016 election, she failed to win the Electoral College and conceded the race to President Donald J. Trump.
