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. Today she is the most powerful woman in the world and one of the most recognizable, working so seamlessly with her former rival Barack Obama that her popularity has easily eclipsed his within a year of his victory over her in the Democratic primaries. In addition to the stirring Democratic primaries of 2008, Hillary was a US Senator from New York for nearly eight years before becoming Obama’s Secretary of State. Recognized as one of the sharpest minds in Washington and a complete policy wonk, Hillary has been one of the few bright spots in Obama’s Cabinet during his first term.
History for Kids: An Illustrated Biography of Hillary Clinton for Children 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. Your kids will learn about Hillary Clinton like never before.
