LIA's Fall Luncheon Featuring Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton spoke with more than 1,100 Long Island business and political leaders during an informative discussion with LIA President and CEO Kevin Law on Friday, October 4th at the LIA's Annual Fall Luncheon at the Crest Hollow Country Club.  During the luncheon, Clinton discussed the federal government shutdown, foreign affairs, Benghazi, her personal recount of the events of September 11th and the killing of Osama bin Laden, and the question that was on everyone's mind – will she run in 2016.  "I am not going to begin thinking seriously about it until sometime next year," Clinton said.  "I will think about it because it's something on a lot of people's mind.  And it's on my mind as well."

Hillary Rodham Clinton served as the 67th U.S. Secretary of State from 2009 until 2013, after nearly four decades in public service. Her "smart power" approach to foreign policy repositioned American diplomacy and development for the 21st century.  Clinton played a central role in restoring America's standing in the world, reasserting the United States as a Pacific power, imposing crippling sanctions on Iran and North Korea, responding to the Arab Awakening and negotiating a ceasefire in the Middle East.  Earlier, as First Lady and Senator from New York, she traveled to more than 80 countries as a champion of human rights, democracy, and opportunities for women and girls. Clinton also worked to provide health care to millions of children, create jobs and opportunity, and support first responders who risked their lives at Ground Zero.  In her historic campaign for President, Clinton won 18 million votes.
