Clinton's First Lady: Hillary

Clip: Season 24 Episode 3 | 2m 26s

First Lady Hillary Clinton was blamed for the poor showing during the 1994 midterm elections. "Voters thought that it was a zero sum game, that for Hillary to be strong Bill would have to be weak, and as a result the perception of Hillary's strength became a perception of Bill's weakness," says Political Consultant Dick Morris.
