You can almost hear Fleetwood Mac’s “Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow” in the background as the former First Couple prepares to mark the 20th anniversary of Bill Clinton’s announcement of his presidential candidacy.
Or is it Springsteen’s “Glory Days” we’re hearing?
The Clinton/Gore ’92 campaign reunion will include events ranging from a screening of “The War Room,” a documentary about the 1992 campaign and dedication of a Clinton Presidential Park bridge, to a Clinton White House staff reunion Saturday
A highlight of the two-day Clinton fest at the Clinton Presidential Center in the Arkansan state capital will be Friday’s panel discussion entitled, “Reimagining the Progressive Tradition: The Clinton/Gore campaign and the Emergence of a Democratic Agenda for the 21st Century.”
Panelists will include James Carville, Vernon Jordan, Al From – the founder of the Democratic Leadership Council whom President Clinton credits with making his election possible – and Lottie Shackelford.
Clinton is not listed as leading the discussion, but it’s hard to imagine the former president and now man-about-globe remaining too far in the background.
