Hillary Rodham Clinton (b. 1947) is currently the Secretary of State and was the First Lady of the United States from 1993 to 2001. She has served as the junior Senator from New York since 2001. In 2008, she campaigned for the Democratic Party nomination on the US Presidential election ballot.

On January 19th, 1993, as part of Bill Clinton's first Presidental Inauguration festivities, the Disney Channel put together an "Inaugural Celebration for Children" concert at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. The concert was hosted by Markie Post, and included performances by Mr. Rogers, the Adventures in Wonderland cast, and the Muppets.

Kermit, Gonzo and Rizzo appeared in four sketches during the hour-long concert. In the sketches, Kermit introduced Gonzo and Rizzo's "Presidential Information Moments," pre-taped segments of the pair trying to educate children about the Presidents. In one segment, Gonzo reported that Theodore Roosevelt was over 150 feet tall. ("The earth shook with his mighty footsteps! He had to comb his hair with an entire pine tree!") In another, he and Rizzo spent the entire segment complaining about their accommodations.

At the end of the concert, children's musician Raffi played "This Little Light of Mine," inviting all of the performers to join Bill and Hillary Clinton onstage. Steve Whitmire and Dave Goelz came on with Kermit and Gonzo, and Whitmire crouched down behind the Clintons, perching Kermit up on Hillary's shoulder as they sang. The camera held for a minute or so on this scene, and an AP photo of Kermit on Hillary's shoulder appeared on front pages around the nation.

In 1993 Clinton, as First Lady, appeared on Sesame Street in an insert with Rosita and Big Bird for Episode 3136 where she discussed health tips. The segment was filmed on October 14, 1993 at 10 am.[1]

When Clinton appeared on The Rosie O'Donnell Show on February 3, 1997, Oscar the Grouch maneuvered a meeting with the First Lady.[2]

In 2005 Clinton, as a Senator, recorded a public service announcement with Elmo and Rosita as part of the Healthy Habits for Life initiative.
