Hillary Clinton Answers Questions About Madam Secretary But Dodges Other Reporters’ Questions

Hillary Clinton talked with her traveling press pool briefly Thursday and promised them she would do a press avail later in the day.

Clinton told reporters that she is doing fine and then proceeded to talk with one reporter about CBS’s “Madam Sectary,” which is loosely based on Clinton’s experiences as secretary of state.

Clinton, however, would not answer questions from Andrea Mitchell. Mitchell was expressing concern that the presser would happen after the nightly news aired.

Clinton’s Communication Director Jennifer Palmieri dodged Mitchell’s questions about doing the presser live on the networks, possibly trying to avoid a mass audience seeing another Clinton episode.
