We are so proud of Bill Clinton for bringing back Euna Lee and Laura Ling from North Korea. They say there was a lot of legwork done in preparation, but still. Bill rocks! He’s a badass. Yeah, totally! I’ve always thought so, and I haven’t done a very good job at hiding the gigantic crush I have on Bill, either. Honestly, I was a bit hurt when Monicagate/Lewinskygate broke. Why Bill? We coulda had OUR secret moment while you were in AZ, cowboy boots, and all! Eh… ahem, seriously, he’s an awesome person and you’d NEVER see Bushie Boy pulling something like that off… or even caring enough to even bother.
Remember walking down Mill to get to Gammage for the political rally? You had stayed over at my apartment, and we got up as early as we could (like 6? ;-)), but there were already a ton of people. How lucky were we to even get that ticket to pass to the front?! Talk about being in the right place at the right time when that lady turned around to give it away! And thank goodness it was for two people – I can’t even imagine how that woulda gone down. 😉 Yeah, that coulda been ugly! Remember how we were crushed in the crowd just trying for the opportunity to shake his hand? Remember that really big, ugly guy that ended up so close (shoulder to shoulder) with us in our photo? LOL! I always forget him til you remind me. What a creep! I don’t remember if he was Secret Service, or not, but it was like, get your own limelight, big guy! I also recall a Secret Service Agent literally stepping on my foot at the same time he was trying to strongarm me away from my beloved Bill. Wherever you are, watch it, buddy!
The only thing I remember about his speech was Clinton saying how if he won, his Presidency would be “the bridge to the 21st century”, and referring to the bridge-like walkway at Gammage Center. (And me doing the math to see when his second term would be over, and if that would technically be in the new millennium. It was, by 20 days.) Oh yeah, and didn’t Juan Roqué, the Sun Devil football player, introduce him? (‘Cuz that’s the year we went to The Rose Bowl, baby! ;-))
Speaking of the Rose Bowl, remember going to the autograph session with the players and how I got crushed against the tables they were sitting at and had to climb over the top of the table to escape? And, then promptly fell into the lap of one Mr. Juan Roqué? Remember how security came over and wanted to escort me out, but Juan was like, “Um, let go of her…she’s my sister”. You rock, Juan Roqué! Speaking of Mr. Roqué, I saw him doing a TV broadcast for the Cardinals last year. I yelled at my husband, “Hey, my bro’s on TV!”. Yeah, cuz you two look SOOO much alike… 😉 I was down aways trying to get the hot blond kicker’s autograph. And we both missed Jake Plummer cuz he snuck out early, what an ass.
We ❤ Bill!
