Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton may become the first female president of the United States. But that’s not the only first she will achieve. She is also the first woman in US history to have ever won the presidential nomination of a major party along with being the only American first lady to ever win a public office seat. Her major political career began with her work on Jimmy Carter’s presidential campaign. Then came her marriage to former president Bill Clinton and title of first lady from 1993 to 2001. Hillary then became a Democratic US senator in 2001, holding the position until 2009. Barack Obama appointed her Secretary of State in 2009. [Photo: Getty]
