Hillary Clinton Biography and Net Worth
One of our writers did a post on Donald Trump biography and net worth and as the race for the White House intensifies in recent weeks, we have thought it wise to also do a post on Hillary Clinton Biography and net worth.
Born originally as Hillary Diane Rudham on October 26, 1947 at Edgewater Hospital in Chicago, USA, Hillary Clinton, 68, was raised in suburban Park Ridge, Illinois. During her formative years, She attended Wellesley College and later graduated Yale law School.
In 1975, Hillary married Bill Clinton, former President of the United States and their marriage is blessed with a daughter, Chelsea, born in 1980, when they lived in Arkansas.
Even though there were very public cheating scandals when Bill Clinton served as President of the United States, the Clinton’s marriage survived and continues to be scrutinized by the public.
Hillary is also now a proud grandmother to Chelsea’s two children, Charlotte and Aidan.
Hillary Clinton Net Worth
Hillary Clinton’s Net Worth is estimated to be between $30.0 million to $45.0 million, this is largely due to her time as a senator, secretary of state, speeches, and her many book deals. Her husband Bill Clinton has an estimated net worth of $80.0 million, which is a product of the hard work he put into his lengthy political career.
As a senator, Hillary Clinton made $145,000 per annum between 2001 and 2009. When she was secretary of state, she made $186,000 annually between 2009 and 2013.
Hillary’s lucrative book deals have also been helpful to her net worth. She received $8.0 million for her memoir as First Lady, Living History. It was later followed by her book, Hard Choices , which covered her work during the Obama administration, which reportedly came with a $14.0 million advance!
Despite being broke when she and Bill left the White House, they managed to build themselves up again, while getting out of debt.
