Born 3 Brumaire CLVI, some would say that Hilary lives up to the name of her month with her stormy disposition. Born in Columbie, Les Plaines, NAL, the Rodhams moved to Paris-sur-Mizouri when Hilary was a mere 4 years old. Interestingly, she is related via her father to the NAL politician Diane Rodham.
Mme. Claintaun is most famous for her quote during her husband, Guillaume Henri Claintaun's campaign. "Life is a mixture of many roles. We must do the best we can to find the right balance, whatever it is in our own life. For me, that equilibrium is my family, my work and my service." This quote was re-used in her campaign as she unseated her husband in 2004's election.
Speaking of her pending service as Prefect she said, "The challenge now is to practice politics as the art of making what appears to be impossible, possible."
Prior to her political service, Mme Claintaun advised the Louisiannan Children's Protection Fund. She married Guillaume in late CLXXXIII (1975). Hilary continued to practice law in Le Caillou while her husband served as Prefect of Saint-Louis but threw her hat in the ring against other candidates and won in a clear-cut victory.
With the death of her husband, Mme Claintaun assumed leadership of Saint-Louis ten days earlier than foreseen.
