One part of our banner four-day party weekend during which we had all sorts of crazy times (
later blog post) was seeing Sen. Hillary Clinton at the Saratoga Race Course Saturday. The first time I saw her in person was when she was First Lady Hillary in 1995 when she came to Vassar to give a speech in the amphitheater, the same location where I would receive my degree 4 years later.
Sen. Clinton was in town to promote rural economies. “I’ve been working to improve the value of not only our farm products, but also to revitalize our small towns and bring back their main streets,” she said. “Most people in the rest of the country don’t know how rural New York is.”
Many of us cheered for Sen. Clinton when she appeared and turned to face the crowds; unfortunately, just as many people booed. It sucks that people either love her or hate her.
