Pretty cool

Went to see the Prez at the War College today. Only about 600 people in the room. After his speech, he decided to stay and take questions, but we didn't know that beforehand, so I didn't have anything prepared to ask.

If you've read the news, you'll see there were no surprises, but still pretty cool being there.


Story here.

I don't want this to become P&R fodder about the topic, just thought it was pretty cool to get a spot today.

On my way home tonight I realized that he was already up at Kennebunkport. The helicopters flew overhead on their way back to Pease.

I'm the reverse of you, but your statement still holds true.

I got to meet Clinton (for all of 5 seconds) when he was up at RIT in Rochester about 2 years ago.
