PHOTOS: Hillary Clinton at the Free Library

Hillary Clinton drew a large crowd to the Free Library of Philadelphia today for the signing of her new book, Hard Choices. The people I talked to after they got their book signed were broadly smiling, one lady telling me it was, “a once-in-a-lifetime experience to meet the next president of the United States.

A few notables stopped by to say hi, including Mayor Michael Nutter, who Hillary stopped the signing to get up, greet and hug, Council President Darrell Clarke, Senator Vincent Hughes, and Marjorie Margolies, the mother of Hillary’s son-in-law.

First in line was Dylan Hewitt who arrived at 5:30 a.m. He told me he was proud that Madame Secretary Hillary Clinton was a fellow New Yorker, and she was his inspiration to follow in her political footsteps. He attends University of Pennsylvania the Fels Institute of Government, where he studies political science. Margolies is one of his professors. Check out some photos of the afternoon below.
