She is an American politician who served as the 67th US secretary of state.


The wife of the 42nd US President William Jefferson “Bill” Clinton, she was first lady of the US. She served as a US Senator from New York from 2001 to 2009.


She is now the presumptive presidential nominee of the Democratic party in the 2016 election.


She is Hillary Rodham Clinton, and here are her top 10 rules for success.



1. Be resilient.

She attended Wellesley College, graduating in 1969, and earned a J.D. (Juris Doctor) from Yale Law School in 1973.

After serving as a congressional legal counsel, she moved to Arkansas, marrying Bill Clinton in 1975.

She served on the boards of corporations including Wal-Mart.



6. Compromise

In 1997 and 1999, she helped create programs for children's health insurance, adoption and foster care.




7. Be true to yourself.

She was elected in 2000 as the first female senator from New York—the only first lady ever to have sought elective office.



8. Keep going.

Running for president in 2008, she won far more delegates than any previous female candidate.



9. Be kind.

Leaving office after Obama's first term, she authored her fifth book and undertook speaking engagements.
