ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Holding a town hall meeting in Derry, New Hampshire, Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton took a wide array of questions from those in the audience largely focused on the theme of the meeting, veterans affairs. But one man who said he worked for Republican opponent Carly Fiorina back when she was CEO of Hewlett-Packard. He he said he was disgusted with the promises Fiorina made to the American people, saying that after he and thousands of others were laid off, Fiorina bought private jets for executives. "She says she's a great CEO. Every time I see her on TV I want to reach through and strangle her," the man, wearing a baseball cap, told Clinton. "I know that doesn't sound very nice," he added. Clinton laughed and made a quick, but direct reply. "I wouldn't mess with you," she joked. Clinton's primary call during the town hall was for an overhaul of the treatment of U.S. veterans, including coordinating the health care system designed for veterans and modernizing benefits. Clinton, a former secretary of state under President Barack Obama, is vying for her party's nomination for the November 2016 election.
