Hillary Clinton woos the influential Indian community in New York in her push for a Senate berth

As part of her campaign for the Senate polls from New York later this year, Hillary Clinton has targeted the influential Indian community in her constituency.

The first lady hasn't lost an opportunity to strike a rapport with Indians and apart from addressing the Indo-American physicians' association recently, she was the star billing at the International Punjabi Society's annual convention held at the NY Hilton early this month. Even a gaffe by evergreen Bollywood icon Dev Anand, who referred to her husband as "Mr Kennedy", failed to ruffle Hillary, who spoke with the studied ardour of a savvy politician and deftly manoeuvred around the room with confidence and aplomb after her speech.
