FUTURE PRESIDENT SLEPT HERE: Or maybe two. Bill and Hillary Clinton moved to this house on Midland after he lost a race for governor in 1980.
  • FUTURE PRESIDENT SLEPT HERE: Or maybe two. Bill and Hillary Clinton moved to this house on Midland after he lost a race for governor in 1980.
Amy Chozick, the Hillary beat writer for the New York Times, explores today Hillary Clinton's role as bread winner for the family, particularly after Bill Clinton's gubernatorial defeat in 1980.

The article includes a sidebar rundown of Clinton home real estate over the years, an upward trend.

Familiar stuff — commodity futures, Rose Law Firm, Whitewater, speaking fees. Much attention is devoted to a house on Midland where the family moved after leaving the Governor's Mansion. Friends describe Bill Clinton as someone disinterested in money, with Hillary Clinton more practical with concerns about providing for college for Chelsea and other needs in the boom-and-bust of politics.
