    [CHI] Hillary Clinton Speaks to Chicago Crowd
    Clinton receives a standing ovation when the question of a presidential run came up but won't say one way or the other if she'll run for president. MaryAnn Ahern reports.

    Clinton, a potential Democratic candidate for president in 2016, was last in Chicago in September for a fundraiser benefiting Chicago House, a non-profit organization that assists people living with HIV and AIDS.

    Monday's event, at the Sheraton Chicago, at 301 E. North Water Street, is the premier annual event for the JUF, one of the city's largest social service agencies.

    Co-chairs of the event are CEO Michael Sacks, of Grosvenor Capital Management, and Leslie Bluhm, the co-founder of Chicago Cares.

    Also in Chicago on Monday were Senators Dick Durbin and John McCain. At a breakfast for the City Club of Chicago, both said they believe Clinton is the Democratic favorite for the 2016 presidential race.
