Hillary Clinton Visits Yale

Hillary Rodham Clinton was in Connecticut this weekend to accept an award from her alma mater, Yale Law School. It was part of the school’s Alumni Weekend.

Clinton spoke to a crowd at Woolsey Hall in New Haven. She talked about the importance of her experience at Yale, a time when her eyes were opened to issues of child abuse and poverty.

Just before she spoke, Bill Clinton slipped into Woolsey Hall and sat next to Yale’s new president Peter Salovey. Salovey is to be formally inaugurated as Yale’s 23rd president next weekend. The event will include symposia, receptions, music and a celebratory block party.
