Hillary Clinton's Previous White House Experience: May 1993 to July 1993

When the Clintons first occupied the White House, 2008 Democratic Party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton spent her time in the following way between May 1, 1993 and July 30, 1993:

In the evening of May 7, 1993, Hillary and her husband attended both a reception in honor of Bill Clinton and a Marine Corps evening parade at the Marine Barrack. Two days later, on May 9, 1993, the Clintons then spent the afternoon touring an exhibit of French paintings at the National Gallery of Art.

On May 15, 1993, in the afternoon, Hillary and her husband next attended the U.S. Air Force Thunderbird aerial demonstration at Andrews Air Force Base in Camp Springs, Maryland. Afterwards, the Clintons traveled to New York City for the evening and, late that night, returned to Washington, D.C.

Two weeks later, on May 29, 1993, the Clintons again traveled to Camp David, Maryland for the weekend. Then, on May 31, 1993, Hillary and her husband returned to the White House from Camp David in the morning for a White House breakfast with representatives of veterans groups.

On June 9, 1993, the Clintons next attended their daughter Chelsea’s eighth grade graduation ceremony at the Sidwell Friends private school. Four days later, on June 13, 1993, Hillary and her husband then hosted an evening reception for members of the White House press corps. A few weeks later, on June 30, 1993, the Clintons and their daughter spent the evening attending a performance of “The Phantom Of The Opera” at the JFK Center for the Performing Arts.

The following evening, on July 1, 1993, Hillary and her husband had dinner with then-U.S. Senate Republican leader and 1996 Republican Party presidential candidate Robert Dole and Mrs. Robert Strauss. Then, on July 5, 1993, the Clintons traveled from San Francisco, California to Tokyo, Japan in the afternoon.

Three days later, on the evening of July 8, 1993, Hillary and her husband next attended a dinner at Japan’s Imperial Palace which was hosted by Japanese Emperor Akinito. Then, in the late morning of July 10, 1993, the Clintons traveled from Tokyo to Seoul, South Korea.

The following evening, on July 11, 1993, Hillary and her husband traveled to Honolulu, Hawaii from South Korea, crossed the international dateline going east, and thus arrived in Honolulu on the morning of July 11, 1993. After the Clintons participated in a wreath-laying ceremony at the USS Arizona Memorial, they spent the evening attending a dinner for then-Hawaii Governor John Warhoo.

On July 21, 1993, Hillary’s husband, Bill Clinton, said the following after Deputy White House Counsel Vincent Foster Jr.’s mysterious death:

“Forty-two years ago…I lived with my grandparents in a modest little home around the corner from Vince Foster’s nice, big, white brick house. And our backyards touched.

“When I started my career in Arkansas politics, he was there to help me. When I decided to run for attorney general, he was the first lawyer in Little Rock I talked to about supporting me. When the Rose Law Firm hired Hillary after I moved to Little Rock, Vince Foster and Webb Hubbell became her closest friends.”

Then, on July 23, 1993, the Clintons traveled to Little Rock, Arkansas in the morning to attend the funeral services for their Deputy White House Counsel at St. Andrew’s Cathedral in the morning; and, in the afternoon, Hillary and her husband traveled to Hope, Arkansas where they attended a burial service for Vincent Foster at Memory Garden Cemetery. The following day, on July 24, 1993, the Clintons returned to Washington, D.C. from Little Rock.

The Clintons are now hoping to move back into the White House for another two terms in 2009—despite the 22nd amendment to the U.S. Constitution prohibiting U.S. politicians from occupying the White House for more than two terms as U.S. President.
