At the Eleanor Roosevelt Memorial in Manhattan, Hillary Rodham Clinton and her daughter, Chelsea, look upon a 20th-century giant. “I think she was one of the greatest Americans in our history,” Hillary told “Sunday Morning” host Jane Pauley.
“She is a kind of transcendent figure over generations because of all that she did in her life,” Chelsea said.
Hillary added, “I just find that depiction of her to be as I imagine her – thoughtfully listening, taking it all in.”
And at the New York Historical Society, they handled a racquet from the hands of tennis legend Billie Jean King. And they examined a century-old banner from the Women’s Suffrage Movement. “I have one of these at my home,” Hillary said. “I have it over the fireplace; I look at it every day.”
The mementos breathe life into a collection of stories called “The Book of Gutsy Women,” co-authored by mother and daughter, and published by CBS’ Simon & Schuster.
