The Guest That Would Not Leave

National Review reported yesterday that the Clintons are going on tour (together).

The article reports:

The tour, which is being called “An Evening with the Clintons,” will be promoted by Live Nation, a prestigious live-events company that will help the couple fill massive arenas all over North America with thousands of attendees willing to pay as much as $288.44 to hear from the former president and secretary of state.

“Experience a one-of-a-kind conversation with two individuals who have helped shape our world and had a front seat to some of the most important moments in modern history,” reads Live Nation’s promotional page. “From the American presidency to the halls of the Senate and State Department to one of the United States’ most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections, they provide a unique perspective on the past, and remarkable insight into where we go from here.”

It is interesting to me that the tour will begin on November 18–after the midterm elections. The article also notes that many of the candidates in the midterm elections did not want the endorsement of the Clintons–Hillary is considered a liability because she lost in 2016, and Bill is considered a liability because of the #metoo movement.

I am simply not convinced that the Clintons were as much about building up the Democrat party as they are about building up their own personal influence and fortune. It will be interesting to see what the attendance is on this tour. I suspect it will be a total contrast to the number of people who come out to hear President Trump.
