Hillary Clinton accepts humanitarian award in NYC

Posted:

NEW YORK (AP) -- Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton touted the efforts of a group combatting malnutrition and blindness during an awards speech in New York City.

Clinton delivered the remarks on Wednesday while being honored with the 2013 Helen Keller Humanitarian Award from Helen Keller International.

Clinton praised ground-tested approaches to fighting the maladies, like distributing Vitamin A supplements and teaching villagers in impoverished countries to grow nutrient-rich food in home gardens.

Earlier this month, former President Bill Clinton said speculating on his wife's political future was a waste of time and that the nation should be more focused on fixing its problems.

He also said the former New York senator was writing a book and "having a little fun being a private citizen for the first time in 20 years."
