Hillary Clinton is in San Francisco for the start of a whirlwind tour that looks a lot like a political campaign. Over the next few days, Clinton will barnstorm through five cities and earning as much as a million dollars in speaking fees. She is talking about her political future.

Clinton, the keynote speaker at a conference sponsored by marketing software company Marketo was, spoke to a full house on Tuesday.

The former secretary of state was invited to talk about the things that matter in San Francisco and the Silicon Valley -- the issue of granting more H1B visas led the discussion.

"Companies that need workers right now with certain skills have a change to get them, but they also do what, I'm beginning to see what college campuses are doing, they begin to fund programs that will train more people that are already here," Clinton said.

Clinton has many admirers, especially among women. Tuesday she stressed the need to make the workplace a more supportive environment.

"We need more supportive environments to help people particularly younger people and especially young women find their way through all of that," Clinton said.

She was finally asked about her possible run for the White House. Clinton has the name recognition and the connections and ability to raise a lot of money for a possible campaign.

"I am thinking about it, but I am going to continue to think about it for a while," she said.

Clinton has pointed out any decision will certainly come after the midterm election.

Clinton is scheduled to deliver another speech Thursday evening at San Jose State University. Tickets for that event are still available.
