As Governor's Wife, Clinton Asked: Why Have A Career?

In Focus
Channel 8, KAIT

In 1979, one month into Bill Clinton’s first gubernatorial term, Jonesboro’s “In Focus” TV anchor Jack Hill put the spotlight on 32-year-old Hillary Clinton.

“You're not a native. You've been educated in liberal, Eastern universities. You are less than 40. You don't have any children. You don't use your husband's name. You practice law. Does it concern you that maybe other people feel that you don't fit the image that we have created for the governor's wife in Arkansas?” asked Hill. 

You can watch the full interview below.
