Even more details on the whereabouts of then-First Lady Hillary Clinton while her husband made history, from Brian Ross and Marcus Baram:

"Last week, Clinton insisted she played a key role in the Northern Ireland peace talks, saying ‘I wasn’t sitting at the negotiating table but the role I played was instrumental.’

"But, according to her White House schedule, while Catholic and Protestant leaders were locked into final negotiations on the terms of their power-sharing agreement in Belfast, Clinton was at the National Press Club in Washington at a ‘Hats On For Bella’ party in honor of late Congresswoman Bella Abzug on April 9, 1998.

"And while President Clinton was making last-minute phone calls to the major players in the peace talks that afernoon, she was meeting with Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel and the Park Service Foundation.

"On the day the agreement was signed, April 10, 1998, she had a private meeting with Philippine first lady Amelita Ramos in the White House’s Yellow Oval room."
