Before They Were Stars: Hillary Clinton is Interviewed in 1979

Last week, I posted a clip of a Donald Trump interview from 1980 in which he expressed zero desire to run for President of the United States. Well, here’s an interview clip from a year earlier of Trump’s biggest opponent in this year’s election, Hillary Clinton, back when she was the First Lady of Arkansas and her husband was the Governor. You’ll notice that she’s still known as Hillary Rodham here because she initially didn’t take her husband’s name after they got married. However, she eventually started going by Hillary Clinton because apparently, one of the reasons Bill lost his first re-election for Arkansas Governor was because the state’s voters were bothered by the fact that his wife wasn’t using his last name. No, I’m not kidding!
