A former first lady who ran the White House’s Office of Public Engagement says she wants to stay in a cabin and play in a creek.
Lauren Wood told The Wall St. Journal in an interview published Monday that she would love to live like her predecessor, who lived in the White, D.C., home that her husband and former president, Bill Clinton, and daughter, Chelsea, used for their vacations.
Wood, 55, said she would like to see President Bill Clinton in a “hanging cabin” or in a remote cabin, and she also would like the White house to have a “dancing fountain” on the grounds.
“I think we should be able to have those things because I think there’s a lot of places in the world where people can enjoy themselves,” Wood said.
“If you’re a hippie, you can go camping in Alaska, and if you’re an outdoorsy person, you could go canoeing.”
Wood said that her desire to live out her presidency’s dream of a cave came from her husband, former President Bill and former First Lady Hillary Clinton.
He was in the process of moving out of the White residence in 1993 when his wife, then-First Lady Hillary, visited with them and had dinner there.
Hillary Clinton’s family had an elaborate outdoor lifestyle, including a swimming pool, sauna, tennis courts, tennis nets and horseback riding.
The Clintons spent more than $50,000 in their backyard pool and on a hunting and fishing trip to Lake Tahoe.
