NEW YORK (Reuters) – Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton promised on Saturday to fight for a fairer society for ordinary Americans, staking out a place on the left to cut off any budding challenge for the Democratic nomination.
In the first major rally of her campaign for the November 2016 presidential election, Clinton touched on many of the issues that energize liberal Democrats. She highlighted her support for gay marriage, women’s rights, income equality, clean energy and regulating Wall Street.

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton stages the first big rally of her presidential campaign on Saturday, trying to cast herself as a fighter for ordinary Americans and build a clearer case for why she wants to lead the country.

DENVER, Co., – Presiding over a two-day meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative, Bill Clinton, for the most part made only the most fleeting references to his wife’s run for the White House. Still, the former president allowed himself a couple of oblique, comic nods on Wednesday to some of the more unflattering headlines that have greeted Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
DENVER (Reuters) – Bill Clinton said on Wednesday he would no longer give paid speeches if his wife, Hillary Clinton, is elected U.S. president.
Republicans and media commentators have criticized both Clintons for earning millions of dollars from paid speeches, saying the practice raises the possibility of conflicts of interest.
DENVER (Reuters) – Bill Clinton gave one of his lengthiest rebuttals yet on Wednesday of allegations that his wife Hillary Clinton, now running for president, gave favorable treatment to donors to the family’s charities while she was U.S. secretary of state.
The former U.S. president also used the interviews at a conference organized by the Clinton Foundation to speak with emotional candor about their marriage and the role he might play should the couple return to the White House in 2017.
It has become a recurrent moment in Hillary Clinton’s speeches as she campaigns for the presidency: softening her voice to a hush, she says she wants to end the “quiet epidemic” of Americans dying from overdoses of painkillers and other drugs.
NEW YORK, June 7 (Reuters) – It has become a recurrent
moment in Hillary Clinton’s speeches as she campaigns for the
presidency: softening her voice to a hush, she says she wants to
end the “quiet epidemic” of Americans dying from overdoses of
painkillers and other drugs.
Often, she remarks how surprised she is to find herself
discussing the problem, which is now among the leading causes of
injury death in the United States. Prescription painkiller
overdoses alone kill an average of 44 people each day according
to the federal government. Several of her rivals for the
presidency have said they plan to do something about it if
elected in November 2016.
Hillary Clinton will hold her first large rally of her campaign this month on Roosevelt Island, the little slip of land in New York’s East River best known as the site of the former New York City Lunatic Asylum. According to an email from her campaign, the June 13 rally will be held in the Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park, which belatedly opened in 2012, four decades after architect Louis Kahn first began designing the memorial to the former president.
