Early Life:

Hillary Clinton is an American politician and 2016 Democratic Party’s nominee for President of the United States. She’s a former U.S. First Lady and the 67th United States Secretary of State. Clinton was born Hillary Diane Rodham on October 26, 1947, in Chicago, Illinois. She was raised in the suburb of Park Ridge. Her father, Hugh Ellsworth, owned a fabric store, and her mother, Dorothy Emma, a homemaker. She has two younger brothers, Hugh Jr. and Anthony.

Clinton attended Maine East High School, where she was active in student council and the National Honor Society. She also campaigned for Richard Nixon and Barry Goldwater during her high school years. Clinton continued her education at Wellesley College, earning a BA degree in political science in 1969. She then studied law at Yale Law School, from which she graduated with honors in 1973. In addition to law, she took several courses on children and medicine at Yale Child Study Center (1973-1974).


BUDDY – Buddy was picked up by Bill Clinton at three months old in December 1997 and was named after Bill’s great-uncle who was a major influence in his life. He became First Dog of the United States, replacing Socks the Cat as the official White House pet. Socks was well-known for not getting along with the friendly Buddy and the Clinton’s had to keep them in separate quarters.

Sadly at four years old in 2002, Buddy was killed by a car as he chased a contractor at the home across the street. While not able to help, secret service agents were at the home at the time and the Clinton’s were not. The agents rushed Buddy to an animal hospital where he was pronounced dead. This has led to conspiracy theories that his death was planned in order to garner sympathy for the Clintons at the time.

SOCKS CLINTON – The most famous of the Clinton family’s pets, Socks was born around 1989 and passed away in 2009. He served as First Cat of the United States from 1993-2001 and the First Cat of Arkansas from 1991-1992. He was adopted by the Clintons in 1991 when he jumped into the arms of daughter Chelsea Clinton as she was leaving her piano teacher’s house.

As First Cat, he often visited schools and hospitals in support of children. He was eventually forced to step down as First Cat when the Clinton’s got Buddy the Labrador retriever, who took over as First Dog. Both Clinton’s have said Socks couldn’t stand Buddy, with Bill being quoted as saying “I did better with… the Palestinians and the Israelis than I’ve done with Socks and Buddy”. He spent his later years under the care of Bill’s secretary Betty Currie and due to failing health, he was euthanized in 2009.

SEAMUS – After the tragic death of Buddy, Hillary got a 4-month old chocolate Labrador as a Father’s Day surprise for Bill in 2002. Born in February 2002 and great nephew of Buddy, he passed away in 2016 of old age.

TALLY – Hillary Clinton wanted an energetic dog to keep their aging labrador Seamus active and Tally the toy poodle mix was the result. Presidential Pets believes she is the small black-and-white dog often seen with Hillary, looks like a shih Tzu/toy poodle mix

MAISIE – Maisie is a curly-haired white mutt that looks to be a poodle-mix and was taken in by the Clinton family around 2013.


Clinton worked with U.S. Senator Walter Mondale in 1971 followed by Democratic presidential nominee George McGovern in 1972. She met Bill Clinton while teaching at the University of Arkansas Law School in Fayetteville. The two got married in 1975. Clinton served as First Lady of Arkansas from 1979-1981 and again from 1983-1992. She became First Lady of the United States in 1993 after her husband became president. She became New York’s first female senator in 2001, a position she held until 2009.

Clinton’s first bid for presidency ended with a loss to Democratic nominee Barack Obama in 2008. She was named as the 67th United States Secretary of State in the Obama administration from 2009 through 2013. Clinton faced harsh criticism in 2014 after it was revealed that she used her personal email address to handle official government business during her tenure as secretary of state.
