Sir Elton John on Hillary Clinton: "I hope she becomes president of the United States. You could use a woman president."
Hillary Clinton was honored by Elton John on Tuesday night in New York City for her work on HIV/AIDS. The former secretary of state was given the first founders award from the Elton John AIDS Foundation. She told the crowd at Cipriani’s restaurant that “we still have so far to go” when it comes to helping those affected by HIV/AIDS.
John said it was a “huge honor just to even honor her” and that Clinton is “the kind of human being that I love.”
White House correspondent Philip Rucker was also in attendance of the event, and he asked multiple celebrity guests, including Elton John, if Clinton should run for president in 2016.
