If she decides to seek the Democratic nomination for president, Hillary Clinton all but has the nomination locked up. But convincing Americans to support her pro-abortion bid may be another question.
Today, Clinton is expected to give a speech at Georgetown University, an oration at a Catholic institution at a time when Catholics are soured on the pro-abortion policies of President Barack Obama. But the reception for Clinton was less than stellar — with even mainstream media reporters noting the lack of attendance and a half empty lecture hall.
As Dana Milbank of the Washington Post tweeted:
Clinton event supposed to have started. There are 700 seats in G’town Gaston Hall, including balcony. About half are still empty.

Pictures from Milbank and another reporter tell the tale, along with a video below. They could spell trouble for Clinton, who says she admires Planned Parenthood abortion business founder Margaret Sanger.
