Hillary Clinton was at Common Good Books in St. Paul on Sunday, promoting her new memoir, "Hard Choices." (Pioneer Press: Ginger Pinson), via twincities.com.
I regret that I was unable to attend Hillary Clinton’s book signing in St. Paul yesterday. But it was heartwarming to see photos showing the line of Hillary's supporters stretched out for blocks – I mean, the woman signed 1,100 copies of her book “Hard Choices.”
In the meantime, a handful of protestors (it's not clear what they were protesting) were kept across the street. And according to the Pioneer Press article cited below, “Protesters couldn't be heard in the store, where events manager David Enyeart was happy everything was going smoothly and Clinton was having a good time..”
Mary Ann Grossman reports:
Hillary Rodham Clinton drew waves of cheers Sunday afternoon when she entered Common Good Books, where she signed copies of her book "Hard Choices," a memoir of her four years as secretary of state.
Clinton acknowledged the love with a wave. Then she deftly organized a photo of the first people to move up to the signing table -- Autumn Paulson of Bloomington, who uses a wheelchair, and her mom, Catherine Kane. "Did you get us all," Clinton asked the photographer as she leaned into the shot.
Admirers of the former first lady and U.S. senator snapped up 1,100 tickets to see the woman they hope will be the Democrats' 2016 nominee for president. She had a smile, handshake and brief comment for each person who was ushered to the table where she signed books.
Clinton was greeted privately by Gov. Mark Dayton, Sen. Al Franken and St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman. The governor escorted Clinton to the signing table. Holding up her book he promised with a smile, "I'll read it after the election," presumably referring to his bid for re-election.
