Hillary Clinton Is One Of The Greatest Americans Ever

Yes, You Read That Right.

Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton is an American politician, diplomat, lawyer, writer, and public speaker. She served as First Lady of the United States from 1993 to 2001, as a United States senator from New York from 2001 to 2009, and as the 67th United States secretary of state from 2009 until 2013.
In 1997 and 1999, Clinton played a leading role in advocating the creation of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, the Adoption and Safe Families Act and the Foster Care Independence Act. Her marital relationship came under public scrutiny during the Lewinsky scandal, which led her to issue a statement that reaffirmed her commitment to the marriage.
When Bill Clinton took office as president in January 1993, Hillary Rodham Clinton became the first First Lady to have a postgraduate degree and her own professional career up to the time of entering the White House. She was also the first to have an office in the West Wing of the White House in addition to the usual first lady offices in the East Wing. She was part of the innermost circle vetting appointments to the new administration. Her choices filled at least eleven top-level positions and dozens more lower-level ones.
Women variously admired her strength and poise in private matters that were made public. They sympathized with her as a victim of her husband’s insensitive behavior and criticized her as being an enabler to her husband’s indiscretions. They also accused her of cynically staying in a failed marriage as a way of keeping or even fostering her own political influence. In the wake of the revelations, her public approval ratings shot upward to around 70 percent, the highest they had ever been.
Over a hundred books and scholarly works have been written about Clinton. A 2006 survey by the New York Observer found “a virtual cottage industry” of “anti-Clinton literature” put out by Regnery Publishing and other conservative imprints. Some titles include “Madame Hillary: The Dark Road to the White House,” “Hillary’s Scheme: Inside the Next Clinton’s Ruthless Agenda to Take the White House” and “Can She Be Stopped?: Hillary Clinton Will Be the Next President of the United States Unless …” Books praising Clinton did not sell nearly as well (other than her memoirs and those of her husband).
Upon entering the Senate, Clinton maintained a low public profile and built relationships with senators from both parties. She forged alliances with religiously inclined senators by becoming a regular participant in the Senate Prayer Breakfast. She sat on five Senate committees: Committee on Budget (2001–02), Committee on Armed Services (2003–09), Committee on Environment and Public Works (2001–09), Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (2001–09) and Special Committee on Aging. She was also a member of the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe (2001–09).
By September 2015, with her 2016 presidential campaign underway and beset by continued reports regarding her private email usage at the State Department, her ratings had slumped to some of her lowest levels ever.During 2016 she acknowledged that: “I’m not a natural politician, in case you haven’t noticed.”
