CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton praised Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's decision to veto a bill that would have allowed people with sincerely held religious beliefs to refuse to serve gays.

Speaking Wednesday to thousands of students, faculty and guests at the University of Miami, the former secretary of state and New York senator said Brewer's rejection of "discriminatory legislation" recognized that inclusive leadership is what the 21st century is about.

Clinton's remarks came before an address in which she called for greater civic participation in the country.

Clinton has been traveling the country giving speeches at various trade industry events while considering another presidential campaign. The former first lady expects to make a decision whether to run later this year.
