WASHINGTON–In the wake of shock jock Don Imus racist and sexist smear of the Rutgers basketball team, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton on Monday will speak at the university’s well known Center for American Women and Politics and the Eagleton Institute of Politics.

Clinton on Wednesday launched a “Respect for Rutgers” drive on her campaign website, handing the team the best position on her front page. A centerpiece of Clinton’s campaign strategy is locking up female votes.

Her Rutgers speech is titled “Because politics matter.””
