Want to chat with the Clintons? It will cost you and you likely won’t be able to

Bill and Hillary Clinton are going on a 13 city joint tour of the US and Canada titled “An Evening with President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton” where they will supposedly engage with the audience in a conversation.

Each event promises to “feature joint on stage conversations with the two leaders sharing stories and inspiring anecdotes that shaped their historic careers in public service, while also discussing issues of the day and looking towards the future,” Live Nation said in a statement.

Tickets for the ‘conversations’ vary from venue to venue with the cheapest being around $75 and the most expensive for VIPs running to around $750.

So clearly the Clintons only want to have ‘conversations’ (if you can give that label to an event where they basically talk all the time) with each other and with the affluent, not with the great unwashed masses whose votes they once sought so eagerly. That sounds about right, given their constant hustling for money.

Haven’t we had our fill of Clintonia? I am curious about what kind of person would find that such a good way to spend an evening that they would shell out so much money for it. Frankly, I would not go to such an event even if you paid me.

    No thank you.

    I am however going to spend a night seeing Roy Zimmerman (https://www.royzimmerman.com/) which will cost me $20.00 or whatever I can afford to pay at the door. Far more worth it. I’ll get an evening of song, laughter, tears and the opportunity to hang out with some of my fellow Americans (or USAians, however you like to label it) that will be uplifting and entertaining.

    Not real interested in incredibly rich people who have done very little for me. Happy trails to them, though. And “whatever”.

    Why, that’s almost as outrageous as someone charging ~$45,000 (tuition at Case Western) to hear them lecture at you!


    In all seriousness, I don’t really care if the poorer among us are unable to hear the Clintons gab about what’s on their mind. Of all the obstacles facing the poorest 25% of Americans, not being able to listen to the Clintons doesn’t crack my top thousand.

    The Clintons are already crazy wealthy. What do they plan to do with the money? Hire another ghost-writer for a book about how awesome Hillary is? Tax shelter it like Trump, only more competently? Spend it to make sure that the Democratic party is secure against political reform?

    Worst case scenario: She’s running again, in which case you’ll very much get a guaranteed 4 more years of Trump.
    I think Marcus is most likely right, they are probably raising money to keep the Democrats from reforming in any meaningful way.
    Bashing liberals ain’t free.

    Well, would you look at that! No stops planned in either Ohio or Wisconsin!

    I guess no lessons were learned in 2016.

    “An Evening with President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton”
    Why is Bill billed as President, but Hillary as former Secretary of State? Last I checked, the presidency was not a lifetime appointment.

    I believe there’s a convention where ex-Presidents continue to be referred to as “President.” I don’t know why this is.

    kestrel @#2: We just had Roy at our house Tuesday night! It was fantastic. I’ll take that over an evening with the Clintons any day. Or night.
