More than 2,000 people came to the Long Center for a conversation with Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Clinton made Austin her 10th stop on her book tour promoting "Hard Choices," an autobiography covering a series of political events and crises Clinton faced during her four years as Secretary of State.
The keynote address was full of lessons and accomplishments from Clinton's term. It mentioned her failures as well.
"Our political system has to be fixed so we start working together again," Clinton told the crowd. "We have to start acting like Americans. We're all on the same team."
The former First Lady and U.S. Senator remained coy about her intentions to pursue the Democratic nomination for president in two years.
In response to a question about the agenda of the next president, Hillary Clinton replied “this is speaking hypothetically, whoever this person might be. I have a very simple vision, and that is to restore the American dream for the American people and to do it in a way that renews our trust in each other.”
