Bill and Hillary Clinton are one of the most influential couples in America and their love story is somewhat extraordinary. They have been together for nearly 46 years and went through thick and thin in order to keep their marriage going strong.
Bill has always been interested in politics, even as a teenager. Being extremely bright and an outstanding student, he got the chance to enrol some of the most prestigious schools in the country. Following high school, Bill attended Georgetown University. Then, in 1986, he won a Rhodes Scholarship to attend Oxford University, and later on earned his law degree at Yale University.
Those who knew him well were aware of his political aspirations. Bill’s love for politics grew even stronger after a very special meeting with then-President John F Kennedy during a visit of the White House Rose Garden as a delegate to Boys Nation.
The photo of young Bill shaking the President’s hand gained a lot of attention and many dub it legendary.
“I was about the third or fourth person in, and…I sort of muscled my way up (to the front),” Bill once recalled of the meeting which left huge impression on him.
Many of his friends recalled how Bill wouldn’t stop talking about JFK that day and was so fascinated and impressed with him that he told a friend, future Minnesota Congressman Jim Ramstad, that he would have that job one day.
As we all know, young Bill kept that promise and served as the 42nd President of the United States of America. During his successful presidency, he got involved in an affair with intern Monica Lewinsky, which overshadowed a considerable chunk of his legacy in the White House.
