5th Annual Hillary Rodham Clinton Year in Review: Installment IV April 2013

As the Spring bulbs were shooting up, Hillary also began, slowly, to emerge and find her way back into the spotlight.  Her first public appearance was at Vital Voices, where she speaks every year.  This time she appeared with Vice President Biden raising a flurry of comments about 2016.

On the 4th she joined Bill and Chelsea for a SeriousFun Children’s Network event honoring Liz Robbins at Chelsea Piers.   The next evening, she spoke at the Women in the World Conference.

Also on the the she accepted membership on the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition’s National Advisory Board.

On the 8th came the news that what had formerly been the William J. Clinton Foundation had been renamed for all three Clintons.

Speaking engagements were being announced and supporters and fans anticipated public appearances near their hometowns.

Margaret Thatcher passed away, and although invited, the Clintons did not attend.
She appeared at the Global Fund for Women Gala on the 18th and offered remarks on the bombing at the Boston Marathon.


On the 22rd Hillary and Bill Clinton were at Lincoln Center in New York to see longtime friend and supporter, Barbra Streisand receive an award.


In Dallas at her first paid speaking engagement, she dodged "that question."

The next day she shared the stage with the other living FLOTUSes and POTUSes for the dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Center.

As April waned rallies were being held outside venues where Hillary, in one case even Bill, was appearing and a biopic was being planned.

No longer having access to an official public schedule, I began keeping track of her public appearances on my own.  Assuredly, I did not catch every single one, but here is the calendar I kept for April.
