About 1,000 Clinton supporters lined up in front of the bookstore for the sold out event, some as early as 5 a.m.

"I've been all over for Hillary. We went to get out the vote in Ohio for Hillary, went to Nevada, in '08 we were down in Texas, Pennsylvania, Iowa," said Clinton supporter Simone Dubois of Concord.

Eric Aguilar of San Francisco said, "She's not only an inspiration to little girls and women, but also to us as men. Women are the future."

According to the book tour website, Clinton continues her tour with an appearance at the University of California, Davis on October 9th.

Editor's Note: "What Happened" is published by Simon & Schuster, a division of CBS.
