On Saturday, Hillary Clinton made a surprise appearance at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York. Clinton took part in a panel discussion with Kathryn Bigelow and Imraan Ismail. The group discussed Bigelow’s film “The Protectors: Walk in the Rangers’ Shoes,” which focuses on the fight save elephants in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Clinton spoke about the world-wide effort to eliminate the demand for ivory, but she said more work needs to be done. “It became clear to everyone that this was not just a terrible crisis when it came to the elephant population, it was a trade, a trafficking that was funding a lot of bad folks, a lot of bad actors. It was being used to take ivory and sell it in order to buy more weapons, and support the kind of terroristic activity that these and other groups were engaged in,” she said. A video from the event will be added if/when available.

With just five days remaining before the Iowa caucuses, Bill Clinton was in Iowa campaigning for Hillary. During an event in Mason City, Bill spoke about Hillary’s experience and how she is the most experienced candidate in the race. He said that there are three questions on which a public figure should be judged: are people better off because of what they’ve done?; have they improved the outlook for future generations?; and have things come together because of their leadership? He said that for Hillary, the answer is “yes” on all three.
He also spoke about her plans for the economy and raising the minimum wage. He called Hillary a problem solver, and urged voters to caucus for her on Monday. He said, “You’ll never have another opportunity to vote for someone who has done so much for so many in and out of public office.” A video from yesterday’s event will be posted when/if available.
