Did she tell Toronto her plans for 2016?

Hillary Clinton gave no indication of which way she is leaning as she mulls a possible US presidential bid while in Toronto on Monday.

The former first lady is in the city to discuss her new memoir, ``Hard Choices.''

Many observers were hoping she might drop a few hints on whether she plans to run in the next U.S. presidential election, but she would only say she hopes to one day see a woman in the White House. She spoke at a function over the lunch hour in Toronto and also met with hundreds of fans at a book signing. Fans lined up down the street and some waited for hours to get a few moments with Clinton. Some told her they hope she runs for President in 2016.

Clinton has insisted she hasn't decided on a second bid for the presidency but over the course of her book tour so far she has made it clear she is giving it serious consideration.

Clinton has said she finds the prospect of running compelling simply because it offers the chance to help Americans find economic opportunities that elude them.

The former first lady spoke in glowing terms about the US relationship with Canada, but said Washington's long-awaited decision to approve or reject the Keystone XL pipeline should not become a symbol of the two countries.

Speaking before a business crowd of roughly 1,800 in Toronto, Clinton said the controversial project designed to move Alberta crude oil to the Gulf Coast has become ``a proxy for everything'' as proponents and critics lock horns over its fate.

``However this Keystone decision is finally made, some people are going to be very happy, relieved and think it was the right decision and some people are going to be distraught and even angry and upset, thinking it was a terrible decision,'' she said.

``I do not see it, though, nor should it be a proxy for the relationship. It is, after all, one pipeline. We already have a lot of pipelines that cross our border.''

American approval of the pipeline has been stalled in the U.S. while the Obama administration drops hints that Canada must do more on the environment.

    If Clinton wants to help Americans find economic opportunities, perhaps she could find the 6 BILLION dollars that disappeared under her watch as Secretary of State. She claims they went into the White House broke, and left broke...even though the President earns 360,000 USD per year. I'm broke...I live on less than 12,000 on ODSP. She can't handle money, it seems, so who would want her as President?
