Former First Lady, Secretary of State and Presidential candidate herself, Hillary Clinton attended the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden on 20th January 2020.
Clinton congratulated Vice President-elect, Kamala Harris, in a tweet that read, “It delights me to think that what feels historical and amazing to us today — a woman sworn in to the vice presidency — will seem normal, obvious “of course” to Kamala’s grand-nieces as they grow up. And they will be right.”

This historical moment comes with Kamala Harris being the first woman Vice President. Till date, the U.S. has not witnessed a female President or Vice President. Hillary Clinton stood against Trump and put up a tough fight to become President but failed in her attempt in 2016.
Clinton also strived for the presidency in 2008 when Barack Obama was elected instead. Her long political standing comes from her husband, Bill Clinton’s beginning in Politics as Governor of Arkansas. She went onto become First Lady from 1993 to 2001 and succeeded as New York State Senator from 2001 to 2009. During the reign of Obama, she was made Secretary of State as she was highly respected by the President then.
As a Democrat-nominee painting close relations to the Obama and Biden families, Hillary Clinton attended the star-studded, primarily virtual inauguration. Her husband, Bill Clinton and former American President George W. Bush were also present.
This inauguration was highly celebrated and welcomed as America grew weary of Trump more after the 6th January 2021 Capitol attacks. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have brought back the house of Democrats while also creating history.
