Former President and current candidate for First-husband Bill Clinton came to campus last night to campaign for his wife. Signs of how completely connected Mason students are:
1) The students (college democrats) knew before the administration.
2) It only merited a small mention on the website that he was coming, http://gazette.gmu.edu/articles/11490/, and just one note about it today, http://gazette.gmu.edu/articles/11497/ …largely because there was so much going on at the same time!
3) A Mason student (Grant Herring, president of the college Democrats) introduced President Clinton, not a campaign official, local politico, or campus administrator.
Maybe our students just have so much access that they’re not that easily impressed. Check out the article about the class following the primary – including pictures of them with the former first daughter and former mayor or New York/recovering presidential candidate – http://gazette.gmu.edu/articles/11494/
Be seeing you!
