​Former US Secretary of State was nearly hit by a shoe during a speech in Las Vegas Thursday, dodging the object at the last second as an usher escorted a young woman from the audience.

Clinton had only been on the stage at an Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries meeting near the Mandalay Bay hotel and casino for moments when an object flew toward her from the crowd. Clinton, also a former New York State senator and First Lady, stepped out of its path and joked, “good thing she didn’t play softball like I did,” as quoted by the Associated Press.

The young woman was not identified, although security personnel at Mandalay Bay told reporters the police had been called and she would likely be arrested.

Considered likely to run as the Democratic candidate for president in 2016, Clinton is touring the country and delivering a series of speeches while at work on a book about her time in the State Department, a term that stretched across the first four years of the Obama administration. She appeared at the Las Vegas conference alongside Steve Wozniak, an Apple co-founder.

during the presidential debates clinton and bush1 did not mention iran contra once, a raging investigation at the time.
vp bush1 ran the cia shortly before and his grandfather founded the oss, the precursor of the cia after ww2
gb1 was allowed to escape with one term as bill clinton was gifted the presidency for his involvement in iran contra, the importation of cocaine by oliver north and barry seal to arkansas, to sell on the streets of america to raise cash for the cia. these facts are born out later in the bcci banking scandal when he cia laundered the ill gotten gains.

Hilary Clinton is a total hypocrite and her useless endless globe trotting has left a giant footprint. So much for recycling Hilary. Why isn't the subject of Israel allowed to be debated in USA Universities and colleges since it cost the USA Billions of dollars each year to keep the place going and since it is illegally occupying Palestinian and Syrian land isn't this against the USAs own constitution? Snowden is a hero for revealing the evil of the NSAs PRISM which spies on each and everyone of us. What about giving the Island of Diego Garcia back to the Islanders who were kicked out of their homes by USA military?.
