There's been a lot of talk about whether or not Hillary Clinton will run again for president in 2016.

She's not saying just yet, but Clinton is in town this week and will attend a fundraiser tonight that's expected to raise thousands of dollars for a super PAC that's pushing her to run. Several of the city's top politicians are slated to speak, including Los Angeles City Councilwoman Nury Martinez and former city Controller Wendy Greuel.

Both Greuel and Martinez were here at KPCC last night as part of a panel about why there are so few women in politics in this town.

KPCC political reporter Alice Walton, who moderated the event, joins the show to talk about the event.
