Washington (CNN) -- Hillary Clinton did at CNN's town hall meeting on Tuesday what most politicians do: She staked out a position on some issues, catered to her base in others and avoided some questions altogether.

There were comments during her hour-long interview with CNN International Correspondent Christiane Amanpour and a studio audience at the Newseum as well as Tumblr that are sure to make the base happy.

Those included how far Clinton went to attack pro-gun activists and her states-rights approach to marijuana, which was a departure from her earlier position.

Between the answers and dodges, though, Clinton sounded, acted and presented herself very much like a candidate, not solely as a former secretary of state.

She was careful, at times, about not going too far on an issue and when asked about forward looking policy questions, she regularly used the word "we."

Clinton also entertained questions about 2016.

She said she's "not going to be rushed to" decide on whether to run for president and that she was not moving any closer to making a decision.
