As the American people become increasingly concerned about the loss of jobs and the continuing erosion of our manufacturing base, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) will make a major address laying out her views on the long overdue changes that must be made in U.S. manufacturing, research, tax and trade policy.
The Center for American Progress is a nonpartisan research and educational institute dedicated to promoting a strong, just and free America that ensures opportunity for all Americans.
Hillary Rodham Clinton was elected United States Senator from New York on November 7, 2000. She is the only First Lady ever elected to the United States Senate. Now midway through her six-year team, Senator Clinton has proven to be a strong advocate for New York, working in a bipartisan way to pass legislation, secure millions in appropriations and draw attention to issues that matter to people throughout New York State. Senator Clinton serves on the Senate Committees for Environment and Public Works; Health, Education, Labor and Pensions; and is the first New York Senator to serve on the Senate Armed Services Committee.
During the 108th Congress, Senator Clinton made homeland security, economic security, and national security her top priorities.
Born in Chicago, Illinois on October 26, 1947, Senator Clinton is the daughter of Dorothy Rodham and the late Hugh Rodham. She grew up in Park Ridge, Illinois and attended public school there. She attended Wellesley College and is a 1973 graduate of Yale Law School. Senator Clinton is married to former President William J. Clinton and they have one daughter, Chelsea.
Senator Clinton’s latest book, Living History, was released in June of 2003. Living History was an immediate best seller, selling more than one million copies in the first month following publication. She is also the author of It Takes a Village: and Other Lessons Children Teach Us, An Invitation to the White House, and Dear Socks, Dear Buddy: Kids Letters to the First Pets.
