Hillary Rodham Clinton is sworn into office as United States Senator in January. In remarks at the swearing-in ceremony, President Bill Clinton thanked Hillary’s supporters for taking a huge load off of his mind. “Because, you know, for 30 years, I’ve been guilt-ridden that I, when Hillary came to Arkansas and married me, that I kept her out of a career in politics that she should have had. So, I don’t have to feel bad about it anymore. . . I have always felt that Hillary had the best combination of mind and heart and passion and strength about the issues that we have always cared about than anyone I ever knew.”

President William Jefferson Clinton delivered his farewell address to the nation from the Oval Office on January 18, 2001.
