Hillary Clinton Returns To NYC To Continue Book Tour
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Hillary Clinton is returning to New York for more stops on her book promo blitz.
The former secretary of state and potential 2016 presidential contender will be making multiple stops in the city on Thursday.
She’ll join the president of the Council on Foreign Relations in the morning for a conversation about her career in government and her new book, “Hard Choices.”
Then she’ll attend the World Resource Institute’s 2014 Courage to Lead luncheon. The event honors leaders tackling global environmental and economic development challenges.

People waited for hours for a chance to shake Clinton’s hand and say hello.
“I told her thank you for being such an incredible woman and being my role model,” said Abby Meeks of Brooklyn, who slept on the sidewalk the night before the event. “She asked me where I was from and how I was liking living in New York. It was amazing.”
Tuesday’s event had all the markings of a campaign stop, complete with a bus and stickers that read “Ready For Hillary,” WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond reported.
