It appears that 2015 is going to be an important year for Hillary Rodham Clinton and her supporters. With a 2016 presidential run announcement expected early in the year, everyone will be watching Clinton’s scheduled speeches in early 2015.
While everyone seems to be looking forward to 2015, 2014 was a very important year for Clinton. She returned to the political spectrum during the 2014 mid-term elections. While the Democrats had a rough year, Clinton was out in the field supporting Democratic candidates and making speeches that sounded more political in nature.
Another major story from 2014 was the release of Clinton’s memoir, Hard Choices. Released in June, the book quickly made the New York Times Bestsellers list. The book picked up where her first memoir, Living History, left off and primarily focused on her years as Secretary of State. Along with the release of Hard Choices, Clinton completed a book tour which included 47 appearances on television and in local bookstores.
The final story of the year was Clinton’s speech blitz. Over the course of 2014, Clinton delivered speeches for church groups, business organizations, colleges, and more from coast to coast, plus in the United States and Canada. This year, she made a total of 102 speeches and appearances (that were open to the public and not counting appearances for Hard Choices), and you can see an outline of the speeches on our 2014 page.
Finally, I want to thank everyone for reading the site and following along as Clinton, possibly, embarks on the next chapter of her political career. This year, Hillary Clinton Speeches recorded over 20,000 views, and the stats continue to grow. Thank you for following the site in 2014, and we will keep reporting into 2015 and beyond!
