No, Actually, I'm Not Going

It's great that President Clinton is coming to Macon tomorrow. Folks have been calling this afternoon asking about whether I am going. I can't go because have a previous commitment-that's it, nothing more. I'm sure that he will be charming, smart and charismatic as usual. His visit does beg a question. During this cycle, John Edwards has been to Macon and to Americus, and Elizabeth Edwards has been here twice and has also been to Savannah. With February 5th fast approaching, neither Hillary Clinton nor Barack Obama have been to the mid-state.

Reckon they'll come? Now, that's a good question for Bill...

Wonder if it's a nice little help to city revenue wise to have all these big shots stopping by.

As I mentioned before, on my recent overnight trip to Macon, it took a while to find a hotel, and the one we found, that 15 story Ramada (I think), was right out of The Shining. Nothing cool within walking distance with kids in tow from the two state museums.

Anyway, Macon needs to keep this up, and make sure every presidential candidate comes for a vist not just now, but every election year. Do whatever you need to do to make it a tradition.

I've already submitted the first question; "Why did Bill pardon Marc Rich?"

Track, if you were at the Ramada, you were two blocks from where everything happens. Do i have to draw you a map again? :-)

This will be the second time I have heard Bill Clinton speak. The other time was in Macon too, at the city hall. I plan to go to today's meeting with my usual load of camera equipment and will post some shots on the Grapevine, www.gfdw.blogspot.com
It seems to me that Georgia is receiving more candidate visits than it did in the past. Let's just hope that more of them will venture south of I-285.

Tina, please ask Bill why George is using the presidential horserace chaos to sneak a Bill through Congress that Retroactively Pre-Pardons Bush and his administration from War Crime Trials.

Hi, all. Victor, if you want to hear the presidential candidates speak and skip the dinner, tickets for "Peach Speech" at JJ are just $25.00.
