HUNTINGTON - Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was in Huntington Wednesday night to sign copies of her book, “Hard Choices.”

About 1,100 people crowded inside and around the block at Book Revue on New York Avenue in an effort to meet the woman who many say could be the Democratic nominee for president of the United States in 2016.

Her appearance also drew some opposition. About 50 flag-waving protestors stood across the street from the Book Revue, criticizing Clinton's response to the attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, Libya. Four Americans were killed in the attack, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens.

Clinton did not make any comments at the Book Revue about the protestors or a possible run for the White House.
