Hillary Clinton Outlines Nonprofit Priorities in Chicago Speech

Hillary Rodham Clinton told a Chicago audience Thursday that she would work on early education, economic inequality, and the rights of women and girls as she enters the nonprofit world, writes the Associated Press.

Speaking at a meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative hosted by the recently renamed Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, the former secretary of state offered her most extensive public description of her plans since leaving the Obama administration. She said the foundation would serve as "my home" for pursuing policy initiatives.

Ms. Clinton is considered a possible 2016 presidential contender, but Democrats cautioned against reading an early campaign message into her Chicago speech, saying the agenda she laid out reflected her priorities throughout her public career.
