Not Milford Street but the neighboring town of the same name. This past weekend, we received an invitation to see former U.S. President Bill Clinton speak at a local school in support of his wife’s campaign. I’d heard that he is a very charismatic speaker and despite having been out of office since 2001 and aging a bit, he is still a thoroughly engaging and charismatic speaker. Many charismatic speakers speak using their hands. Just look at the variety of hand gestures that former President Clinton used in this hour-long speech.
This year is a Presidential election year here in the US. While the election is not until November, primary elections and caucuses are now being held in individual states to choose candidates for the November election. Often the states with the first primary elections get to help narrow down the field. New Hampshire is the second state to make their choice and with the primary election on Tuesday, we are inundated with candidates and media. It is a mixed blessing. On the up-side, we can pretty much see any candidate we want. The other night Chris Christie held a town hall forum in a fire station in a nearby town. We went over because he has some interesting things to say. These images show how informal it can be at this point in the process.
The T (Boston’s subway system) has upgraded most of the stations, but I recently discovered that this one at the far end of the Green Line still looks like it has for decades. Kind of a cool look….I’d leave it, but hey that’s me.
