Born: Oct. 26, 1947 in Chicago, Illinois
Hillary Clinton is an American politician who served as a United States Senator for New York (2001-09) and 67th Secretary of State under President Barack Obama (2009-13) but is best known as the wife of Bill Clinton. (The couple are often referred to as “Billary.”)
Clinton began her career as an attorney and served on the board of directors of Wal-Mart and several other corporations. People struck by the similarities between presidents George W. Bush and Obama often notice a similar similarity between Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her predecessor, Condoleeza Rice. Like Rice, Clinton proved herself a warhawk, advocating for the military invasion of Libya and turning a blind eye to children killed by U.S. drones. A video of Clinton joking and laughing over the news of Gaddafi’s murder is particularly shocking.
