"First Ladies and Impeachment Postscript"

Central Arkansas, discussed his research on First Ladies, focusing
particularly on Hillary Rodham Clinton. Dr. Wekkin has a distinguished
record as a teacher and scholar. He has published articles on the
role of the first lady, on Southern politics, on elections and voting,
and on one-party systems. He used the Health Care Task Force documents
in the Clinton Presidential Materials Project for his research on
Hillary Clinton as first lady and also interviewed several members
of her White House staff.

the floor speeches by Rep. Henry Hyde, Chairman of the House Judiciary
Committee and leader of the House impeachment managers, and by former
