Color placard from Hillary Rodham Clinton's bid for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination. Signed by both Hillary, who went on to become Barack Obama's Secretary of State, and Bill Clinton, 42nd President of the United States and Hillary's husband.
Advertisement signed "Hillary Rodham Clinton" and "Bill Clinton". Color, 21½x13¾, printed on cardstock. Captioned in white: "Hillary/for President/HillaryClinton.com". This advertisement is from the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination, which came down to a slugfest between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Clinton was the favorite to secure the Democratic nomination. She won important states like California, Massachusetts and New York on Super Tuesday (Feb. 5, 2008) and a comeback in March 2008 with wins in Ohio and Texas and in April with Pennsylvania. But Clinton was never able to get a substantial lead over Obama, who finally gained enough delegates to secure the nomination on June 3, 2008 with wins in Montana and South Dakota. Obama made Clinton his Secretary of State after he was elected President on Nov. 4, 2008. HILLARY RODHAM, born in Chicago, Illinois in 1947 and a graduate of Wellesley College and Yale Law School, married William Jefferson "Bill" Clinton in 1975. Their daughter Chelsea was born in 1980. While actively practicing law herself, she spent 12 years as First Lady of Arkansas (1978-1980, 1982-1992). Since 1982, she has preferred to be called by her married name. As First Lady during the Presidency of Bill Clinton (1993-2001): she set several firsts, including: first with a postgraduate degree, first to have practiced law, and, in 2007, the first to be elected to public office on her own. She was elected US Senator from New York in 2000, and re-elected in a landslide in 2006. As First Lady, Hillary Clinton took an active role in public policy, beginning by chairing the National Task Force on Health Care Reform. While the Clinton health care proposals were defeated in Congress, and probably contributed to the Republican take-over of the Congress in 1994, she had more success on other issues, including successful advocacy of the Adoption and Safe Families Act of 1997. In the Senate, Clinton sits on five committees, including Armed Services, and Environment and Public Works. As a Senator, she has worked hard to prove herself a moderate, able to work effectively across party lines, but many public perceptions of her nationally - not in New York - hardened in the 1990s and have proved difficult to change. She was a favorite to win the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008, but lost it in a hard-fought primary campaign with Illinois Junior Senator Obama. She was selected Secretary of State in Obama's presidential cabinet in 2009, a position she holds as of this biography. WILLIAM JEFFERSON CLINTON, born William Jefferson Blythe III in Hope, Arkansas in 1946, was Governor of Arkansas (1979-1981, 1983-1992) and the first Democrat reelected President since Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The only elected U.S. President to be impeached (Andrew Johnson was impeached, but he had not been elected to the office), on February 12, 1999, President Clinton was acquitted on both articles of impeachment brought against him: charges of perjury and obstruction of justice. Clinton's popularity stood at 67% at the end of his trial, however. Obviously, many Americans were willing to overlook his personal failings in an era of peace and prosperity. His accomplishments in office included a waiting period for gun purchases (the Brady Law), the Family and Medical Leave Act, the North American Free Trade Agreement, welfare reform and balancing of the federal budget. Clinton had previously co-written (with Al Gore) Putting People First (1992), and he would publish his successful autobiography, My Life, in 2004. Clinton's wife, former First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, was a Democratic U.S. Senator from New York (2001-2009), and is currently Secretary of State under President Obama. Lightly toned, creased and bowed. Light tear at right edge. Lightly scuffed edges. Otherwise in fine condition.
