A woman threw a shoe at Hillary Clinton during a speech in Las Vegas on Thursday,  but as Brianna Keilar reports, the former Senator and Secretary of State took it all in stride.

Hillary Clinton, "What was that a bat? Was that a bat? Is that somebody throwing something at me? Is that part of Circus Soleil?"

Hillary Clinton, cracking jokes just seconds after a woman hurled a shoe at her during a paid speech in Las Vegas, to the institute of scrap recycling industries.

Hillary Clinton, "I didn't know solid waste management was so controversial!"

The hurler, who slipped in without a ticket, was immediately subdued and taken into custody.

It's not the first time objects have been thrown at a politician.

An Iraqi journalist chucked not one, but two shoes, at President Bush during this news conference and protesters in Egypt threw tomatoes at then Secretary of State Clinton's motorcade.

The latest incident no where near as threatening, Hillary Clinton, "Thank goodness she didn't play softball like I did."

Perhaps an item for her new memoir, which her publisher said this week will come out in mid-June.

Until then, expect some more dodging from Clinton, not shoes but questions about her presidential ambitions, Hillary Clinton, "And I am thinking about it."
