Hillary Clinton took the stage in Chicago on Wednesday to a crowd of about 1,500, hitting themes of feminism and gay rights and even busting on Vladimir Putin.
Clinton made Chicago Harris Theater the first stop on her tour promoting her new memoir, Hard Choices, where Clinton details her years as Secretary of State — from 2009 to 2013.
“Now there may be world leaders who might not be happy when they read my book. I’m talking to you Vladimir,” she said.
