The crowd erupted when President Bill Clinton finally took the stage. He was about an hour late but the crowd didn't seem to mind.
Folks lined up around 10 this morning patiently waiting to see and hear what the former president had to say.
It was quite a range of people in attendance...from high school students to senior citizens. Those we talked with said they were excited to see the former president himself but also interested in what he had to say about his wife and her campaign.
Johnny Franklin isn't even old enough to vote yet (he'll be 18 next year) but he says it is important for him to be here. "I'm going to have to spend three years with either a good president or a bad one so I want to know what they think about the issues even if I can't vote."
President Clinton addressed issues from the economy to health care to gas prices. There were also several veterans in attendance and he addressed veterans issue as well saying Hillary is a champion for them and has been for many years.

    What a waste of fuel. The Democratic hopefuls ALWAYS come to KY prior to elections with their promises of more social progrmas for the poor and disadvantaged. They have been at this for the last 50 years. Don't be Republican. Billary will win the Primary here hands down, but she won't get the National nod because that is going to Obama. So who are you guys going to vote for then? When Billary loses out it will be the end of the Clintons....they will be tossed aside like trash. Her days in the Senate and our back pockets are numbered.

    Sen Hillary CLinton wants to make health insurance madatory for everyone includign the min wage worker. that means the price goes up same as when they made everyone get car insurance. She also voted yes on teh war in Iraq. Pres Clinton even tryed to bash Obama and may have stained his own career in teh process. Read what these people dont dont vote for just a name thats how Bush got in office 50% of people didnt know they were voting for Bush Jr the 1st time around.
