Five Things You Might Not Know About Madam President

She started out as a Republican. She came from a conservative family and it was while she was at Wesley College she began to question the values of Republican candidates. She actually canvased for Republicans when she was thirteen, namely Richard Nixon. She then volunteered to campaign for Barry Goldwater. She was the only person to graduate Wesley College and be asked to give the commencement address. The address was widely reprinted and put her in Life Magazine and on the Irv Kupcinet show. She then went to Alaska and worked her way across the state dish washing and ended up working in a salmon processing factory.

When she went to Yale for her law degrees she bumped into a tall guy with a really bad accent named Bill Clinton. He had big goals and she wasn't sure she shared them. When he asked her to marry him she turned him down. She had her own political career and she didn't want to be in his shadow. Bill being Bill persisted and Hillary went with " her heart over her head"  and married him. But she kept her name and made it clear she wanted to have her own political career outside of the big dog.

After The Clinton Presidency she became the only First Lady to run for an elected office and win when she became Senator of New York. She she ran against  Barack Obama and won more delegates and primaries than any woman in history. And now she is running to be the First Woman President of the United States, All in a days work.
