- She first came to moderate fame in California, as the strong, somewhat domineering wife of millionaire and Republican candidate for Senate Michael Huffington.
1995 - Her conservative newspaper column was syndicated, but with minimal success. Readers and editors were perplexed when, instead of being utterly predictable in her views, Huffington's columns began inching bit-by-bit to the left. By the turn of the millennium, she had reinvented herself as a liberal columnist.
1998-2002 - She appeared in the films The Siege, Ed TV, Running Mates and John Q.
2003 - Huffington ran for Governor of California, finishing far in the distance behind Arnold Schwarzenegger. She now describes herself as an independent, unaligned with either party.

2006 - Released her book, "On Being Fearless...in Love, Work and Life".
