ABC News’ Eloise Harper Reports: At an event in Indiana, Sen. Hillary Clinton got a ballsy introduction by the president of the local steelworkers union who said it’s "going to take an individual with testicular fortitude" to deal with solving the nation’s problems.

While Clinton cracked a smile and then burst into laughter behind him, union leader Paul Gibson called for a president who would take a "strong, hard look" at trade and continued,  "I’m tired of these Gucci wearing,  latte-drinking, self-centered egotistical people that have damaged our lifestyle." He backed Clinton saying "I know the entire executive board has not made a move yet to endorse whoever in this primary, Paul Gibson is going to do it right here tonight, she’s standing right behind me.”

Clinton addressed Gibson’s racy comments – glossing over the slightly controversial part saying with a smile "I do think I have fortitude…women can have it as well as men.”

Clinton went on to address high gas prices, her plan for universal healthcare and highlighted trade issues to a very rowdy crowd of over a thousand union members.
