Hillary Clinton Campaigns for Barry Goldwater
Hillary Clinton Barry Goldwater
In this Oct. 15, 1996 photo, First Lady Hillary Clinton visited former Republican Senator Barry Goldwater at his home in Arizona where he was recovering from a stroke and suffering from early stages of Alzheimer's. Goldwater was the first presidential candidate Clinton volunteered for in 1964. In high school at the time, Clinton was a Young Republican and even attended the 1968 Republican convention. Working for Goldwater earned Hillary the nickname "Goldwater Girl." However, by 1972, she had found her place with the Democrats, working for George McGovern during his campaign against President Richard Nixon.
