What Julia Fox and Hillary Clinton Wore to Parties Last Week
On Saturday, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama duked it out at the Democratic National Convention. On Sunday, the Republican field dominated the political discussion for three nights in a row.
This is not a new phenomenon. The presidential field has always been fluid. However, there’s been a marked shift in the last couple of presidential elections.

First Lady of the United States (1969-79)
Hillary Rodham Clinton was first lady from January 1969, when she married Bill Clinton in the White House. That same year, she became the first woman to be awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Richard Nixon. With the exception of a brief hiatus in 1970, Clinton would be first lady for twenty years.
