In 2000 the Democratic Convention was held at the Pepsi Arena in Albany, New York. It was there that Hillary Clinton accepted the nomination for US senate. Mrs. Clinton was the first of the Presidents' wives to run for the office of US Sentae and win. She attended the convention with her husband, Bill Clinton, who was the president of the United States.. "History in the making" was the slogan for her campaign as she took on the challenge of the US Senate after being first lady of the United Sates for eight years. This had never been done before by a woman, and opened the door for more women to pursue political aspirations.
