Campaigning in California, Hillary Clinton was introduced by the popular and charismatic pastor of the Saddleback Church, Rick Warren.
I was curious to see what kind of greeting Hillary Clinton, the leading democratic presidential hopeful in national polls, would receive in conservative and very Republican Orange County.
The crowd gave the former first lady a standing ovation when she began her more than 30-minute speech, and bursts of applause throughout.
There was more cheering when the senator from New York acknowledged the first ladies of Zambia and Rwanda in the audience.
She spoke at length about her faith prior before discussing what some of her priorities would be as President.
At one point, she pledged to eradicate the threat of malaria by "the end of my second term."
Interesting that she's already talking about a second term.
There were more than a few raised eyebrows after that comment.
Clinton concluded by thanking everyone for "living their faith in a visible way," bringing most of them to their feet once again.
