Person ; Ryan Lee

Backgrounds of Hillary Clinton

She was born on October 26, 1947. As a child, she was a teacher's favorite, she also participated sports. She graduated her high school in the top five percent of her class of 1965. She was raised in a politically conservative household. She also volunteered to campaign for Republican candidate. Her early political development was made by her high school history teacher and her Methodist youth minister.

During her first year at college, she served as the president of the Wellesley Young Republicans, but in her junior year, she became a supporter of Democrats. Rodham was invited by moderate New York Republican Representative Charles Goodell to help Governor Nelson Rockefeller's late-entry campaign for the Republican nomination. Rodham attended the 1968 Republican National Convention in Miami. However, she was upset by the way Richard Nixon's campaign portrayed Rockefeller and by what she perceived as the convention's "veiled" racist messages, and left the Republican Party for good.

She then entered Yale Law School. Clinton began a year of postgraduate study on children and medicine at the Yale Child Study Center. The committee's work culminated in the resignation of President Richard Nixon in August 1974. Democratic political organizer and consultant Betsey Right had moved from Texas to Washington the previous year to help guide her career, and Wright thought Clinton had the potential to become a future senator or president. She moved to Arkansas and became one of only two female members in the School of Law. She became First Lady of Arkansas in January 1979.

Liberal

She is discussed as a conservative sometimes, but I think she is liberal person. Because she is in Democrats, and also she said although she was brought as a conservative , her heart is for liberals. And also she has strong opinions of several issues same as what liberals think and behave with.

Evidence #1 : Abortion

She supports 100% that it is women's rights to choose. Clinton has made a distinction between being pro-choice and "pro-abortion", saying "Being pro-choice is trusting the individual to make the right decision for herself and her family, and not entrusting that decision to anyone wearing the authority of government in any regard". And also we can see her tweet that advocate abortion at below video.
