Before becoming President and First Lady of the United States of America, Bill and Hillary were just two hopelessly devoted, liberal lovebirds.
After first locking eyes at Yale Law School back in 1971, a young Hillary Rodham, pre-presidential candidate days, approached Bill Clinton outside of their school library with a confidence that has followed her throughout her career.
“I was studying in the library, and Bill was standing out in the hall talking to another student — I noticed that he kept looking over at me. He had been doing a lot of that. So I stood up from the desk, walked over to him and said, ‘If you’re going to keep looking at me, and I’m going to keep looking back, we might as well be introduced. I’m Hillary Rodham.’ That was it,” Hillary stated on her website.
From that moment forward, Hillary and Bill became the powerful duo that they are today!
Who knew that it took Bill three times to ask his, now-wife, Hillary, to marry him before she said ‘yes!’ “I actually turned him down twice when he asked me to marry him. He asked me in England on a trip after law school graduation. I said, you know, I can’t say yes. I feel too badly. And then about a year later he asked me again, and I said no. He said I’m not going to ask you again until you’re ready to say yes,” Hillary remarked about her numerous proposals. Looks like she finally did!
