In many ways, Hillary Clinton broke the mold about what it meant to be first lady. She was the first first lady in history to hold a post-graduate degree, have a professional career and have an office in the West Wing of the White House. During his 1992 campaign, Bill Clinton said that electing him president meant that voters got "two for the price of one."
In 1993, Bill Clinton appointed Hillary Clinton to head the Task Force on National Health Care Reform, a move that drew criticism from those who believed that the first lady should not have a central role in public policy.
