On Hillary Clinton's 64th birthday, we pay tribute to the U.S. Secretary of State and honor her years of public service, devotion and courage.
The Secretary of State has left an indelible mark on the history of the United States, starting out her public service as First Lady in 1992. During that time, Mrs. Clinton advocated for massive health care reforms including to increase the number of those insured and published her 1996 award-winning book It Takes A Village: And Other Lessons Children Teach Us.And despite the odds, she ran for - and won - a Senate seat representing New York in 2000, making her the first First Lady ever elected to the Senate and the first woman elected statewide in New York.
