I went to the speech rally thingie (whatever you want to call it) today for Jack Conway, Democrat candidate for U.S. Senate this fall election, at my university (University of Kentucky). The whole thing started about 15 minutes late haha. The student body vice-president gave the welcome and introduction. Then, some important candidates and KY reps talked (I dont know any of their names >.<) I took a picture of each of them as best a s possible. I got a Conway sticker and sign for my sister’s govt. project kekeke! (when is her project due?) I was considered lucky, because I was standing fairly close to the front of the crowd, about 6 or 7 heads behind where the speakers spoke on the podium. There were some taaaall people. It was interesting to hear the democratic side of things, as I lean Republican in general, and the “bashings” on the Republican party weren’t really too bad at all. Btw, Jack Conway looks younger than I thought he would be haha. XD At first, it felt nice standing outside…then the sun came out in the middle of Bill Clinton speaking…X.x I wanted to stay for the whole thing, but I had to get to biology class…I ended up getting to bio about 15 minutes late, but copied notes from the person next to me and got caught up. Of course, by the time class ended, the speeches were done. I thought going to the speech(es) was a good learning experience…I did not know that Bill Clinton was raised by a widow (stuuuupid) I probably should know that…Anyway, here’s some pictures! I’m so short. Waah.
Please note: These pics were taken my ME with a standard digital camera haha 🙂 If you wish to use them, duplicate them, whatever, ask for my permission first. Thank ye!~
OH! IF ANYONE CAN PROVIDE ME WITH THE PROPER NAMES OF EACH OF THESE SPEAKERS…PLEASE TELL ME! I AM SO BAD WITH THESE KINDS OF THINGS X.X
~~~Conway said that if he could sum up what Bill Clinton is in two words, he’d say, “He gives.” (whoot whoot….only quote I remembered verbatim lol)~~~
Ok….that’s the better pics of the batch I took. My photography skills aren’t too great. I was holding the camera with one hand, to make it worse.
