Has Clinton ever had more then a few thousand People attend one of Her Own Rallies?

Just Curious If any Pics are out there of her giving a speech in front of a big crowd, I cannot find any.

Thanks in advance!

1. So what if she doesn't. She is ahead by about 3 million votes, so something works

 

She also hasn't spent her time holding rallies at college campuses. She knows that crowd won't vote in November. While you are on that subject though, how about WV. Bernie held a rally in a very safe place. HRC went out in to the public to face her critics. A lead doesn't run and hide, they confront their critics face to face.

The votes show what a difference it makes. (For all of Bernie's big and showy spectaculars, they really aren't producing the results he needs ... yet he stubbornly keeps trying the same thing over and over ... with the same lackluster results, over and over.)
