From our One Town, Two Different Worlds desk
Former First Lady/U.S. Senator/Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D-Bill’s Not Here) is in town today to pick up a few bucks and drop a few pearls of wisdom.
From the Boston Globe’s Names section:
From the Globe’s (new!) Business section:
So, according to the Globe – twice – the event is sold out. Wouldn’t know it from looking at the Boston Herald, though.
That’s accompanied by this Tom Shattuck piece.
In spirit of holidays, go see poor Hillary Clinton
Ex-first lady needs all the help she can get
It was a speech for the ages. Hillary Clinton’s rousing oratory at Georgetown University yesterday brought the packed house to their feet.
The problem? Their feet were elsewhere.
In fact, it was a humiliating day for Madame Secretary as many, many seats remained empty, a feat which at this moment in time could only have been matched with a cameo by Bill Cosby.
Shattuck goes on to say, “[I]n the spirit of the holiday season, I implore you to attend [today’s event]. In the words of her home state predecessor, Robert F. Kennedy, ‘I dream of things … and ask why not?’ Seriously, why not?”
Uh . . . because it’s sold out? Not to get technical about it.
