Hillary spoke at the U.S. Green Building Council tonight at Temple University.  There was a live feed provided, but Silverlight only provided video for me.  I could not get the audio for some reason, but there are some remarks fed by the audience over Twitter.  Thank God for Twitter!

From the reactions on Twitter,  it appears she was a huge hit, but that does not come as a surprise to any of us! Once again, she strolled the stage and spoke without looking at teleprompters.  She cited stats from memory and blew her audience away. WTG Mme. Secretary!

“The work has proven itself. It’s time to create new partnerships for the future.”

“There’s no doubt that green buildings are the best investment you can make.”

“We not only can do better, we must do better.”

“A small group of committed people can change the world.”

needs to be a key goal & priority for America”

“Let’s make sustainability the rule, rather than the exception”

“Through the day of service, you’re getting private sector companies involved in this work.”

” The future belongs to those looking over the horizon! “It’s time for us to not only do the right things, but the smart things”

“Our debates have been taken over by a small minority that doesn’t believe in compromise.

“It’s important -for everyone – to not vote for anyone who says they will never compromise.”

“We are not a theocracy, we are not a dictatorship. We bring people together and we work it out.”

“We need to get back to the way that brings us together – not tear us apart.”

“Corporations that have women on their boards tend to be more sustainable”

At Greenbuild, audience member yells 2016. ‘There are some hecklers that i would never say anything bad about,” HRC says.

Here are a few twitpics and a new thing.  Screenshots I got from the livefeed.  I could not hear any audio, but I did get to take my own pictures, so it was not a complete loss.
