5 Candid Photos of Hillary Clinton During Wellesley College

Back in the late 1960s, Hillary Clinton was a confident (and somewhat cocky) political science student at all-girls Wellesley College in the Boston area. Clinton was such a force then that she was tapped to provide the commencement speech for her class in 1969.

That year, Life magazine took candid photos of a select group of prominent female graduation speakers, including Hillary back in Illinois. But the pics weren’t released until recently.

Enjoy these 5 pics from a time when Clinton was a “a mind conservative and a heart liberal.”  She was clearly ready to take on the world then.

And if Hillary isn’t your preference on the Democratic ticket during tomorrow’s New Hampshire primaries, take a look at a young Bernie Sanders instead!
