Cover of Hard Choices by Hillary Rodham Clinton

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton launched her book tour today at the Barnes and Noble in Manhattan. Hundreds of people lined up around the block for a chance to meet Secretary Clinton and have their book autographed. The book, Hard Choices, covers her four years as Secretary of State and delves into a number of policy issues.

The events was supposed to last two hours, but Hillary stayed another hour to sign books and greet fans. The press was pretty grumpy when the Barnes and Noble rep told them they could only stay 20 minutes and then they had to leave. Reporters tweeted their displeasure, but Barnes and Noble was adamant that this was about selling and signing books, not about answering questions about whether Hillary will run for president in 2016. She wore a bright pink pantsuit and spoke briefly before getting down to the business of signing books. Take a look:
