“I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfill my profession which I entered before my husband was in public life.” – Hillary Clinton


Everyone has read about history’s most important people and events in dense textbooks and classrooms, but words can only say so much. In Charles River Editors’ Interactive Biography series, history comes to life in video and audio, allowing people to experience history through the eyes and ears of the people who were there.


During the presidential campaign in 1992, Democratic challenger Bill Clinton announced that by voting for him, Americans would get two presidents “for the price of one.” The reference to his wife Hillary signified that she would be no ordinary First Lady, and indeed she was employed frequently by her husband in the White House to try to push legislation through Congress, most notably universal healthcare. While that proved to be one of the Clinton Administration’s greatest failures, Hillary and her staff continued to act as a political surrogate for the president during his two terms.


Of course, describing Hillary Clinton as just a First Lady belittles all of her accomplishments. After losing the 2008 primary, she was appointed Secretary of State, and Hillary worked so seamlessly with her former rival Barack Obama that her popularity has easily eclipsed his. In addition to the stirring Democratic primaries of 2008, Hillary was a U.S. Senator from New York for nearly 8 years. Recognized as one of the sharpest minds in Washington and a complete policy wonk, Hillary was been one of the few bright spots in Obama’s Cabinet during his first term.


An Interactive Biography of Hillary Clinton looks at the life and career of one of America’s most influential First Ladies, but it also humanizes the woman who has overcome personal and political hurdles along the way. Along with videos and pictures of important people, places, and events in her life, you will learn about Hillary Clinton like never before.
