Hillary Clinton is an American politician and Democratic presidential candidate in the 2016 election. She’s a former U.S. First Lady and the 67th United States Secretary of State. Clinton was born Hillary Diane Rodham on October 26, 1947 in Chicago, Illinois. She was raised in the suburb of Park Ridge. Her father, Hugh Ellsworth, owned a fabric store, and her mother, Dorothy Emma, a homemaker. She has two younger brothers, Hugh Jr. and Anthony.

Clinton attended Maine East High School, where she was active in student council and the National Honor Society. She also campaigned for Richard Nixon and Barry Goldwater during her high school years. Clinton continued her education at Wellesley College, earning a BA degree in political science in 1969. She then studied law at Yale Law School, from which she graduated with honors in 1973. In addition to law, she took several courses on children and medicine at Yale Child Study Center (1973-1974).

Clinton worked with U.S. Senator Walter Mondale in 1971 followed by Democratic presidential nominee George McGovern in 1972. She met Bill Clinton while teaching at the University of Arkansas Law School in Fayetteville. The two got married in 1975. Clinton served as First Lady of Arkansas from 1979-1981 and again from 1983-1992. She became First Lady of the United States in 1993 after her husband became president. She became New York’s first female senator in 2001, a position she held until 2009.

Clinton’s first bid for presidency ended with a lost to Democratic nominee Barack Obama in 2008. She was named as the 67th United States Secretary of State in the Obama administration from 2009 through 2013. Clinton faced harsh criticism in 2014 after it was revealed that she used her personal email address to handle official government business during her tenure as secretary of state. Nevertheless, she announced in April 2015 that she was entering the 2016 presidential election. She defeated her closest competitor, Bernie Sanders, to become the first female Democratic presidential nominee. Her running mate is senator Tim Kaine from Virginia.
