By Eileen Buckley

Buffalo, NY – The woman who wants to be President appeared in Buffalo Monday. US Senator Hillary Clinton attended a democratic fundraiser on her behalf, then helped plant a tree at a City school.

Some City Honors students had a chance to snap a photo with Hillary Clinton. It was a chance to get close to the former First Lady and Presidential hopeful. Clinton appeared outside the school Monday to participate in a tree planting ceremony.

But as soon as Clinton was finished with the event, reporters quickly asked about her presidential campaign. Clinton insists that there is a link between her senate work for New York, and what she would like to accomplish for the entire country.
