Hillary Clinton takes the stage at UConn forum

In her opening remarks, tailor-made for a college crowd, former Secretary of State, Senator, first lady and possible Democratic candidate for president Hillary Clinton urged University of Connecticut students to participate in their democracy — and spoke of the need of the country to ensure everyone has the right to participate.
