The biggest thing to hit Clarion is rolling into town today and I’m not there to see it! Bill Clinton is giving a speech at Clarion University this afternoon and I’m in Pittsburgh today. I could have had a ticket to the event and everything. Damn. I so wanted to be the girl in the blue dress in the front row….
It all came together quickly, apparently. No one even knew he was thinking of stopping by until yesterday, according to today’s Derrick. I guess when you’re wife wants to win next Tuesday’s Pennsylvania primary, you’ll go just about anywhere to help.
Clarion is heavily republican, so I’m sure there’s a lot of Clinton bashing going on back home. I share very few of the conservative values of my fellow citizens and so I stay out of their inane debates. I’m not wholly a democrat, either, although as I wrote last month, I changed my affiliation from independent to democrat so I could vote in the primary. I’m still not sure who I’m voting for – I’ll probably make that decision in the voting booth – but some Bill Clinton love (no, not exactly Monica kind of love) might have swayed my vote a little. Just a smile would have done the trick. I like Bill Clinton, I can’t lie. (We’re still friends, though, right, Shari?) I’m just not sure I want another eight years of Clintons in the White House. It might even be longer than that. Won’t Chelsea be old enough to run for president in eight years? We could forget we’re living in a democracy and think we’ve adopted a monarchy.
Obama. Clinton. Obama. Clinton. I’m not sure. What do you think I should do? I read the papers. I read the op-eds. I read blogs. Now let me know what you would do if you lived in Pennsylvania and could vote on Tuesday.
