Re-Live the Clinton Years, Hour-by-Hour
As reported by Peter Baker and Karen DeYoung in the Washington Post today, the 11,000 page schedule of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's days and hours as first lady shows a clear change in her portfolio and responsibilities after the Clinton administration's failed attempt to implement universal health care.
"Hillary Rodham Clinton arrived in the White House with a schedule befitting a president, packed with policy sessions, meetings with senators and trips to promote an ambitious political agenda," write Baker and De Young. "But after the collapse of her health-care plan in 1994, she largely retreated to a more traditional first lady's calendar of school visits, hospital tours, photo ops and speeches on a narrower set of issues."
What else can the trove of documents tell us about Sen. Clinton during her White House years? You be the judge. washingtonpost.com has created a fully searchable version of the papers, allowing you to sort through the minutiae.
