Hillary Clinton took to Facebook Monday afternoon to discuss her new book, "Hard Choices," and answer questions from the public. The Q&A lasted about half an hour and produced 20 responses, addressing issues ranging from the Gaza conflict to book-signing requests. The former secretary of state, senator and first lady indicated support for women's contraception, complimented President Barack Obama's handling of recent events and discussed her taste in books ("The Brothers Karamazov" for her, "Goodnight Moon" to read to her soon-to-be-born grandchild). She also carefully avoided the many questions relating to a possible 2016 presidential candidacy — though she answered "hypothetically" on what should be the first priority for 2016's victor.

Clinton conducted the Q&A from Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, California. She then headed to Twitter headquarters in San Francisco for another public Q&A, this time via tweets, kicking off around 8:20 p.m. ET.
