1969: College Graduation

Hillary was chosen by her fellow students to give the first student commencement speech at her own graduation on May 31, 1969. She publicly rebuked a Republican Senator on the platform, and earned a seven-minute standing ovation for her impassioned words. "For too long, those who lead us have viewed politics as the art of the possible," she said. "The challenge that faces them and us — now — is to practice politics as the art of making possible what appears to be impossible."

1971: Meeting Bill

Hillary met Bill Clinton while they were students at Yale Law School in New Haven, Connecticut, in January 1972. Later, both worked on George McGovern's presidential campaign. "I was studying in the library, and Bill was standing out in the hall talking to another student," she . "I noticed that he kept looking over at me. He had been doing a lot of that. So I stood up from the desk, walked over to him and said, 'If you're going to keep looking at me, and I'm going to keep looking back, we might as well be introduced. I'm Hillary Rodham.' That was it."

1975: Saying "I Do"

"I actually turned him down twice when he asked me to marry him," she of Bill. "He asked me in England on a trip after law school graduation. I said, you know, I can't say yes. I feel too badly. And then about a year later he asked me again, and I said no. He said I'm not asking you again until you're ready to say yes."

They finally married on October 11, 1975, in the living room of their brick cottage in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The night before their wedding, Hillary's mother found out she didn't have a dress, so she drove her to the Dillard's department store in the Fayetteville Mall, where she purchased a $53 Jessica McClintock Victorian lace gown, one of the first that she saw.

Clinton has spent nearly two years tiptoeing around the decision to run for president, one that much of the political world assumed was a done deal.

"She was challenging, she was emotionally supportive, but she also was clear in setting expectations. Like, 'I think you can do that' or 'Why are you worried you can't do that?' or 'I thought you did really well, you tried hard.'"
