Luckily for us, Hillary Clinton has been in the game for a couple of decades now. And even luckier for millennials such as myself, she has been a solid part of the political arena since the time we were born. If you think about it, that means I have never known a world without Hillary Clinton, and hopefully I never will. But despite all these years with the woman, I still have not decided which Hillary identity I truly feel works for me. Am I more of a classic '90s Hillary, a chill '00s version, or a superpowered '10s Hillz? Even if I can't decide which I identify most with, at least I can help you find your true Hill-ter ego.
Each version of the presidential candidate is a different manifestation. In the '90s, she was a cool, confident First Lady — some say this was her best era. Her position was complicated later on in the decade, when Bill's affair with Monica Lewinsky hit the headlines, and suddenly Hillary was in the spotlight, maintaining her composure, more than ever. In the 2000s, she became a politician in her own right, kicking off her first bid for the presidency, even if she didn't win the nomination. And in the post-2010 era — well, who knows what's in store? More good news: I've put together a quiz for you to determine which kind of Clinton girl (or woman) you are.
