PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton found a warmly receptive audience in Philadelphia, last night, when she gave the keynote address to the Greenbuild Expo. The focus was on the benefits of sustainable building but speculation about her political future inevitably came up.
Clinton is a long-time friend of expo sponsor, the Green Building Council, from “greening” the White House as First Lady to requiring LEED certification for all embassies and consulates overseas as secretary of state so Council president Rick Fedrizzi was not lobbing hardballs during a q and a after her talk, when he asked about gridlock in Washington.
“How do we get rid of this current mind set and get back to this really beautiful art of governing?”
From the crowd came the answer the question seemed to be begging: Hillary in 2016.
“Well, there are some hecklers I would never… say anything bad about.”
Clinton is officially undeclared for the next presidential election.
