'Inclusive leadership is really what the 21st century is all about'

Hillary Clinton lauds Arizona veto in speech (WSBT)

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton didn't wait long to applaud the veto of an Arizona law that would have allowed businesses  that asserted their religious beliefs the right to deny service to gay and lesbian customers.

In the first minutes of a speech at the University  of Miami Wednesday night, Clinton lauded the fact that Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer -- a Republican -- vetoed the legislation.

"Thankfully the governor of Arizona has vetoed the discriminatory legislation that was passed, recognizing that inclusive leadership is really what the 21st century is all about," Clinton said to the 6,000 people who assembled at the south Florida institution.
