Hillary Clinton to be in San Diego Wednesday
SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Former Secretary of State and first lady Hillary Clinton is scheduled to promote her new book in La Jolla Wednesday morning and later present a keynote address at a major biotech convention in San Diego.
She'll appear at a sold-out author's event at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday at Warwick's Books in La Jolla, where she will sign copies of "Hard Choices."
Clinton, who is considering a run for president in two years, will later join Gov. Jerry Brown on stage during a luncheon at the Biotechnology Information Organization conference at the San Diego Convention Center.
She has come under criticism over the past couple weeks for commenting that she and former President Bill Clinton were in debt when they left the White House because of legal bills, without noting pending multimillion-dollar book deals and other prospects that would benefit them financially.
On Monday, Bill Clinton defended his wife's commitment to the poor and said she was not out of touch.
CNN reported that the book tour for her memoir has resembled a political campaign, run by campaign operatives instead of book publicists.
"Hard Choices" includes her views on the attack in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, including three San Diegans. She also discusses her dealings with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
