Hillary Rodham Clinton is an informative introduction to the life of this remarkable woman. The former first lady and Yale Law graduate was destined for political life. She brought her intelligence and drive to numerous projects during her husband's presidency in the 1990s. In 2000, she campaigned for the U.S. Senate as a representative from New York. Her win made her the first first woman to be elected to the Senate following her husband's presidency.
