Bill Clinton in Saratoga

In the pic (sorry, it's the best I could do) there's Congressman Scott Murphy, POTUS Bill Clinton and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand...


G Whillikers! I was up even earlier than usual this morning, with a mission to accomplish! Bill Clinton was coming to town. Actually, to the Hall of Springs in Saratoga, to a last-minute Scott Murphy rally. Longtime readers know I'm a HUGE Clinton fan and follower. I arrived in the Spa City for my assignment around 0530, got checked in and set up my recording equipment. Then it was time for coffee and mingling with the various reporters and journalists on the scene. When I left my Albany home it didn't seem very cold, but up in SS it felt like 30 below! Even though the scheduled events lagged behind schedule, a good time was had by all. And it was great to hear Bill Clinton speak. The power is still there.

Here's one person's take on the Clinton phenom.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
