Fact of the Day: Conservative Clinton

While Hilary Clinton is the wife of Democratic President Bill Clinton and was one of the leading candidates for the Democratic nomination in the 2008 presidential elections, she was originally a Republican. She was raised in a conservative family, and volunteered for Barry Goldwater's presidential campaign in 1964. Her views shifted more liberal after the Civil Rights Movement and the Vietnam War. She left the party for good in 1968 after being appalled by the campaign of Richard Nixon.

As much as I follow politics I had forgotten about this! I remember reading about it in the late nineties. I hope she is our next president.

I go back and forth on wanting to see her get elected in. Right now I am so disgusted with the Democratic party, I might welcome a change to Republican Party.
