Activists Are Ready For Hillary... To Say Something About Keystone XL

Clinton says her opinion on Keystone will come "soon." But that's not soon enough for those looking to stop the controversial pipeline.

Anti-Keystone XL protesters are getting very anxious for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to weigh in on the proposed pipeline.

Though Clinton was secretary of state when the Obama administration began considering whether to grant a permit for the massive pipeline from Canada to Texas, she has been tight-lipped about it on the campaign trail. Clinton has said she's waiting for President Barack Obama's decision to render her judgment, telling a voter in July that she doesn't want to "second-guess" the president.

But at an event in New Hampshire on Thursday night, Clinton said she "can't wait too much longer" for a decision on Keystone. "I'm putting the White House on notice. I'm going to tell you what I think soon, because I can't wait," she said.

Anti-Keystone activists can't wait, either -- as this photo from Clinton's campaign stop at the University of New Hampshire on Friday shows.

In the photo, Clinton poses with Griffin Sinclair-Wingate, a 20-year-old student at the college and a volunteer for the group 350 Action, which has led the campaign against Keystone. The group made the sign that Sinclair-Wingate is holding, many of which have been popping up at Clinton campaign events.
