Today, Bill Clinton is campaigning for Hillary Clinton in Madison, Wisconsin. He’s scheduled to speak at 2:15 CST. I’ll be live blogging.
1:15: Alright, I’m here and I have my press credentials. He’s speaking at the UW Stock Pavilion. It’s probably worth noting that there are animal feces on the floor (not a lot, but enough to make the place smell a bit and certainly enough to mess up one’s shoes, like mine for instance). This is an especially sour point for me because I was forced to throw out my soda before taking my seat in the press area. Apparently, poop is okay, but Coke Zero is just going to create too much of a mess.
1:30: Apparently, President Truman spoke here during his campaign for reelection. I wonder if it was smelly/messy back then.
1:50: They’re still seating people. An inordinate amount of effort appears to be going into the locations of where people stand/stand.
2:12: And the seating continues. As of now, it’s just about halfway filled with some people on the floor in front of the stage. So, I’d say there are about 1100-1300 people right now.
