1. Wow! What a life they’ve had since :) It’s hard not to like the Clintons!

  2. omg, elle, heading over right now! thank you!!

  3. Stunning :) I like it!

  4. Great photo. Sometimes, it’s easy to forget that politicians are also people that, at some point in their lives, weren’t scrutinized every moment of every day.

  5. great photo.. bill came into my work one day (i work at an art store). of course, i wasnt in that day. dammit.

    look at that body! you go, hillary! :0

    more importantly, of course, is her brain and accomplishments!!

  7. I’ve had the opportunity to meet and speak in a very small gathering with both Hillary and Bill Clinton and it is amazing the kindness, sincerity and focus they each gave.. both are so charismatic and sincere and wonderful in person.. I feel lucky to have met them. Wonderful photo!!

  8. This is cool! Thanks for sharing!


  9. I love when you post things like this, Joanna! How else would I find it? Such an incredible photo and interesting peak into their history…

  10. I absolutely love this. I read his autobiography a few years ago, and fell in love with both of them. I’ve always thought he was a bit of a looker. :]

  11. I think they knew exactly what was in store for them 15+ years down the road. An incredibly intelligent, confident powerhouse couple-look at their confidence! They knew they were going to do big things.

    I’m reading Living History right now by Hillary. It’s so good! I recommend it.

  13. What a great photo…thanks for sharing

  14. anna, i haven’t seen it, but i’m going to try to find it this weekend, thank you!! you guys are so cute, i love these comments:)

  15. anonymous–i’d actually recommend another platform, like wordpress. i think most people use that. there’s more flexibility with layout, etc. i just chose blogger because it was the only one i knew of at the time! :)

  16. kate, well done on the cute boyfriend, haha :)

  17. megan, you’re so right! they had no idea! :)

  18. Oh to be young again!

    what a great pic of her. Sexy! If only they knew what’s coming their way in 15 yrs or so… wow..just wow :)

  20. I love Hillary’s pose! Awesome. :)

  21. I love that our Secretary of State rocked a crop top!! Take that people who make fun of her power suits!

  22. Oh my goodness, I LOVE this!

  23. Hot damn indeed. It makes me think of those photos where people are looking in a mirror and seeing a different (younger, whatever) self. I wonder where the Clintons are frozen when they look in a mirror. I hope it’s somewhere near here — looks happy. Also, makes me wish just a little tiny bit for the 70s. Thanks!

    Love it! Just normal young folks with high hopes and big dreams… Thanks Joanna!

  25. I love old home photos of famous people. There’s something so down-to-earth and comforting about them.

  26. Love this photo. Did you see the documentary about Clinton that ran recently on PBS? It was fascinating, and it showed just how much his success has depended on her over the years. They’re a really interesting pair.

  27. oh my god.. I love this.. mostly Hillary lounging in her short shorts.. :)

  28. Shut the F up!! I love this!

  29. beautiful. To think of where they are now and where they were then. Inspiring! Sarina @ lowtidehightide.blogspot.com

    Joanna, I have to ask what made you choose blogger over other blogging sites. I’m thinking of starting a blog and would love the advice. Anyone else have any? Thanks!

  31. Amazing – I love photos like this. I wonder if they had any idea what was to come.

    All I can think is that man showed his wife such disrespect by cheating on her…..

  38. I love old photos of these guys. They were such hipsters.

  39. (: This makes me happy! This was probably taken on the campus I’m sitting at right now. Their old house is right down the street from University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. My mom said he came to speak to the college SO much that she nearly got bored just hearing his name. Love Bill, love Hillary- both are incredible humans who inspire me so much. Look at the good thing that came outta Arkansas. You go, Bill! (:

  40. Great find, Joanna. I live in Little Rock, Arkansas, where the Clinton Library is located. It’s such a cool place. I love the park and grounds around the library, too. xo.

  41. You are funny!
    Great find indeed!

  43. My favorite power couple. Bill was kind of hot back in the day, huh? ;]

  44. I like random!

  45. OMG, I love it!

  46. Awesome. I don’t know why this post cracked me up so much, I think it might just be the randomness of it. Great photo. And yes, indeed, hot damn!


  47. Great find! It’s amazing to think where they would’ve been at that moment in time and not knowing what was to become further down the track…
