#19 Hillary R. Clinton – 169 IQ
Starting off our list is presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton! She has served as a US Senator and Secretary of State under President Barack Obama (Slide 8). She attended college at Wellesley College in Massachusetts and law school at Yale University and is currently aiming to win the presidential election this fall. Her IQ of 169 will certainly be a benefit if she takes the White House!
