NEW YORK (AFP) - New York is known as The City That Never Sleeps, but fans of Hillary Clinton may have taken that quite literally.

Hundreds of people got up before dawn on Tuesday for the chance to see the former US secretary of state as she signed her new book in New York - an event that had the feel of a presidential campaign launch.

"I want to be able to tell my children and grandchildren that I have met the first woman president of the US," said Nicole Kelly, who attended the event with two friends.

"She is a role model for all of us," said retiree Claudia Sine.
