HAMILTON, N.Y. (WKTV) - Thousands of people went to Colgate University on Friday night, all to watch and listen as the former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton spoke about issues affecting America. Clinton's speech was part of the "Kerschner Family Series Global Leaders at the University," a speaker series featuring global leaders.
Clinton talked about jobs, the global economy, the American economy, the deficit and debt crisis in the United States as well as the Affordable Care Act. Clinton said, " I think it's important to go back and look at where we came from and where we started... getting back to growing incomes for the hard working middle class Americans who are still worried about their futures," Clinton also said, " We still have this checked debt and a large deficit and the only way to address it is by the kind of hard work of hammering out a by partisan and a non partisan approach."
One question many people had who attended the speech... Will Hillary run in the next Presidential election?
Murray Decock, the Vice President of Institutional Advancement at Colgate said, " I think she's being smart about noticing grounds of young college support like Barack Obama received in the last election. She offered to come speak to 30 colleges and I think that's pointing to a strategy she's trying to engage the grassroots efforts even though she's really coy about the possibility of running in the next election."
Clinton' speech was followed by a question/answer series with Jeffrey Herbst, President of Colgate.
