WASHINGTON (CNN) - Voters ask a lot of the nation’s White House hopefuls, but Democrat Hillary Clinton looked particularly taken aback by a request from one attendee at a Friday campaign event in the Los Angeles area.
"Hillary, marry me, baby," a man yelled at the New York senator as she finished her economic address and prepared to take questions.
The crowd erupted in laughter, and Clinton looked genuinely shocked as she turned to face the questioner.
"That is certainly the kindest offer I've had in a while," Clinton said to loud cheers.
But she added immediately, "I'd probably be arrested."
Clinton visited delegate-rich California - one of the more than two dozen states to vote February 5 - to lay her economic stimulus package.
The shouted proposal was markedly friendlier than an incident in New Hampshire Monday, when a man yelled at her to "Iron my shirt."
"Ah, the remnants of sexism - alive and well," Clinton responded then.
