Hillary Clinton opens cross-country book tour

WASHINGTON — Hillary Rodham Clinton embarked on a 10-day cross-country book tour Tuesday designed to kick off a potential run for the White House.

Clinton is promoting Hard Choices, a 635-page memoir of her years as secretary of state. She is being trailed by a red, white and blue bus that has "Join the Movement" painted on the side and that was organized by Ready for Hillary, the political action committee that hopes to lay the groundwork for her second presidential run.

Clinton said she will decide whether to run for president by the end of the year at the earliest. But the former first lady, U.S. senator from New York and top American diplomat is already the presumed front-runner for her party's nomination in 2016.

As the book tour began at the flagship Barnes & Noble in New York, she waved and thanked the crowd of more than 1,000 people, the New York Times reported.
