Hillary Clinton Says She Hasn't Driven a Car Since 1996, So We're Taking a Look Back at That Year

Driving? She don't got time for that!

Hillary Clinton recently spoke at the New Orleans meeting of the National Automobile Dealers Association, where she revealed that it's been a long time since she actually got behind the wheel.

"I have to confess that one of the regrets I have about my public life is that I can't drive anymore. My husband thinks that's a blessing, but he's the one who should talk!" she joked. "The last time I actually drove a car myself was 1996 and I remember it very well and unfortunately so does the Secret Service, which is why I haven't driven since then."
