Hillary Clinton Must Be Afraid To Speak Publicly to HRC

Clinton Speaks to Gay Group, Privately
Hillary just gave a speech to a luncheon of the gay rights group Human Rights Campaign, before an audience of about 400, HRC spokesman Brad Luna confirms.
It was a pretty closely held secret, this speech: Not on the public schedule, and Human Rights Campaign hasn't been responding to calls or e-mails about it over the last couple of days.
Clinton, for her part, is on pretty solid ground with the gay political establishment but faces some pressure from Obama, who has said he opposed the Defense of Marriage Act back in 1996 and who talks about gays in public speeches, unprompted.
Who insisted on privacy? Clinton or HRC?
