Bill and Hillary Clinton: The Golden Years


Bill and Hillary Clinton have reached the golden years of their lives and have decided to use them to launch another presidential campaign. The Clinton’s have been in public service since 1976 when Bill was elected as the Arkansas Attorney General. When Bill was the young age of 32, he was elected governor of Arkansas and Hillary became the state’s first lady. Due to Bill’s youth, he was often referred to as “Boy Governor.”

The Clinton name became became known world-wide when Bill was elected as president in 1992. Hillary served as first lady where she pushed for health care reform that became known as “Hillarycare.” She failed in her push for health care reform but that didn’t prevent her from advocating other pieces of her husband’s agenda.

In 1998, Bill Clinton became the second president ever to face impeachment over the Monica Lewinsky scandal. The scandal took a toll on the Clintons and the Democrat party. A few years later, then Texas Governor George W. Bush beat Vice-President Al Gore in the presidential election. Although the scandal didn’t seem to have the same effect on Hillary. She was became a New York senator.

After eight years in the senate, Hillary followed her husband’s footsteps and ran for president. Her 2008 campaign was unsuccessful as she conceded defeat to then Senator Barack Obama. But Hillary was still able to serve in the executive branch as she was nominated to be Secretary of State. Hillary served for four years as Secretary of State until she decided to take a small break from public service.

In April 2015, Hillary announced she would launch another presidential campaign.

Bill is currently 69 years old, and Hillary is currently 68 years old.
