Dorothy and Hugh Rodham's first child was Hillary Diane Rodham.  She was born on October 26, 1947, and has two brothers.  Hillary’s race is Caucasian.  She was raised in a small town in Illinois.  Hillary loved sports while in school and was also a Honors Student.  She is a Yale Law School graduate, the wife of former President William Jefferson Clinton, and they were married in 1975.

After serving as First Lady for two terms she successfully ran for a seat in the Senate.  Her passion has always been in public service.  She is a liberal Democrat and believes our country should have equal rights for all people.  She supports the African American community, as well as all other minorities.  She carried the vote of the Hispanics during her run for the Presidential nomination.  She has struggled for many years to advance health care for all Americans and especially for those of the minority races.

"Her grasp of domestic issues, particularly those related to health care, civil rights, and child welfare, has been derived from a background of working with such issues from her days as a law student at Yale. These interests continue to absorb her."
