Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was in San Francisco for a speaking engagement and a fundraiser on Saturday. But the big question that came up over and over again was, will she run for president in 2016.

Clinton rushed into the Regency Ballroom on Saturday to speak to a sold out crowd and then to raise money for the Clinton Foundation.

"I'm a big fan of Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton," fundraiser attendee Dale Schroedel said.

Tickets ranged from $150 to $5,000. But, the legion of Clinton supporters wasn't just here. They anxiously waited for her motorcade to pass along Howard Street.

Clinton was the key note speaker at the National Association of Realtors Conference at the Moscone Center.

Though media was not allowed inside, attendees snapped photos and tweeted away. There was even a Q and A segment.

"They asked her if she was going to run and she didn't actually say that she would run. She said that she hasn't decided yet," conference attendee Mindy Sloviter said.

Outside the Moscone Center, a group expressed that they want the former first lady to run for president in 2016.

"People are so fired up, you know, to support Hillary and we're organizing early and we're just excited," Ready for Hillary spokesperson Kate Maeder said.

There were also a lot of people inside Moscone West, who wanted and paid to see Clinton, but couldn't because of capacity issues.

"We got here and they put me in an over flow room with a big screen and said I couldn't go in and see Hillary," Florida resident Mickey Baker said.

"I don't want a video conference, we showed up to see Hillary," one man said.

Clinton supporters call this passion for a woman who is yet to show a sign or even a nod to what's to come.
