NEW YORK – Sir Elton John’s  AIDS foundation gala honoring Hillary Rodham Clinton Tuesday night was a glitzy affair. Sure, the Hollywood stars and Manhattan bigwigs who arrived in black-tie were supporting John and his partner David Furnish and supporting the fight against AIDS. But they also came to see Hillary, of course.

So The Washington Post hit the red carpet outside the grand ballroom at Cipriani Wall Street to ask arriving celebrities what they thought of the prospect of a President Clinton come 2016.
