Copy of An Invitation to the White House: At Home With History by Hillary Rodham Clinton. Hardcover with color dustcover. ©2000 White House Historical Association, published by Simon & Shuster. This book was written while Hillary Rodham Clinton was still First Lady. HILLARY RODHAM, 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 (born in 1947) 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. On January 20, 2007, she launched an exploratory committee for her own Presidential bid, declaring: "I'm in, and I'm in to win." If elected, she would begin her term in office eight years after her husband left the White House. (This biography was written before the Democratic Party named its 2008 presidential nominee) WILLIAM JEFFERSON "BILL" CLINTON (born in 1946) is the former Governor of Arkansas (1979-1981, 1983-1992) and the first Democrat reelected President since FDR. 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, is currently a Democratic U.S. Senator from New York, and she announced her candidacy for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2007. Dustcover is lightly scuffed and creased. Otherwise in fine condition.
