Clinton engages heckler at University at Buffalo

Amherts, N.Y. (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton has turned the tables on a New York heckler to prove her point about the need to find common ground.

The Democratic former U.S. senator and secretary of state first ignored the man's shouts as she spoke at the University at Buffalo on Wednesday about Buffalo as a model for problem-solving through cooperation. As the shouts grew louder, she drew a sustained standing ovation by saying such cooperation that "doesn't include yelling" is needed on a national level.

About 6,500 people attended Clinton's speech, part of the university's Distinguished Speakers Series.

During an audience question-and-answer session, she deflected the inevitable question about whether she'd run for president by saying she hopes whoever runs can "isolate the extreme voices" and allow the majority of people to be heard.
