    Would be cool to load up the audience similar to the Dems during the kavanaugh hearings. Every 5 minutes start hitting up any one of the many scandals following these 2.

    Gold would be if there is a Q&A open forum at some point.

    I'll Chip for some else to go. will call it 50/50, we could give a few, 200% of ticket price and you get to keep 100% to handle your pain and suffering.

    I dont suppose this is like one of those carnival games where you get to sit in the front row and put sticks of bb's into the air guns and shoot at the ding bats on stage instead of the targets?

    Hmmm. It would be horrific, but I might consider suffering through their babbling if they pay me $500. It's still a bit low though... Raise to 1000, bring wife, and we earn a cool 2000.

    this could make a good escape room. With your tickets to the event comes a piece of incriminating evidence against Billery. Your job is to survive the night without shooting yourself in the back of the head a few times.

    Enthusiastic stain collectors will have their stains signed, they will not destroy them! Some days, if in perfect condition, they can have them apprised on PBS.

    Waste of money, CNN will report crowds standing on streets outside of the venue anyway.
    Bernie in the front row would be a better idea. You know what I mean:

    Heh, I was wondering when someone was going to bring this up. It’s truly hard to believe these criminals are getting paid for this! :eek:

    We have idiots who would pay even if these 2 would not show up. She gave one presentation for $500K to Putin without ever showing up in Moscow.

    Pssst.....That is still a secret for 50% of our citizens. They still think she was just dumping source of radiation in the name of Green New Deal. Our future is in wind and solar!!!!

    A good dry cleaner will always go through your pockets looking for some scratch before throwing it in the hopper.

    Feedback on hasbeens:
    Spin tour for the Clintons
    Other presidents have moved discreetly, gracefully, even gratefully, into their post White house years. George Bush, George H. W. Bush, Jimmy Carter. Clearly former president Clinton and his almost president wife Hillary, also a former US senator and former US secretary of state, have not, and I was left wondering Tuesday: What’s the point of all these performances? It can’t just be about money, can it? Or a bottomless need for the ovation they received — everybody standing — when they took to the stage a half hour late? Meantime a big screen ran photos of the couple at Yale Law School, cuddling in a hammock, at various political conventions and bill signings and inaugurations, with their daughter Chelsea, and their two grandchildren.

    Bill Clinton led the audience on a nostalgic, best-shine-on-it tour through his presidency’s long-ago foreign involvements in Bosnia, Yemen, Israel, and Palestine. Hillary Clinton recalled the first hopeful moments of the Arab Spring, when she was Obama’s secretary of state.

    It was oddly backward looking. The name “Trump” was never mentioned. There were no insights on the 2016 race or strategic advice for nervous Democrats heading into 2020. There was no solace offered to long-time loyalists now fearing an America sliding toward the abyss. The only personal revelations outside the marriage: how much they enjoy the grandkids. The only newsy subjects: internal bickering at the NRA, gun laws, and a breaking report about Robert Mueller complaining that Attorney General William Barr inaccurately spun the Russia probe.

    All this did not seem to bother fans who nearly filled all but the priciest seats — $375 a ticket — in the Opera House, with a capacity of 2,677. Several told me they hope Hillary will run yet again. Sarabeth Guptill, 51, of Framingham, showed up with a six-inch Hillary Clinton action figure, dressed in a blue pantsuit, which she purchased online for $19.95. And no one, despite the #MeToo movement, expressed outrage at Bill Clinton save a handful of protesters repeating, “Go see Bill the Rapist” outside on Washington Street.

    I guess I’d hoped for more from political legends with successes like no one before them. That, after a half-century on the make, they might finally drop the shtick, risk some honesty and authenticity, and give us some wisdom, reflecting on their own and other Democrats’ failings. Maybe an apology from him. Maybe from her an admission that she completely missed the roiling, countrywide despair that gave us Donald Trump. Instead, it was the Clintons, again, spinning the Clintons, again.
    ------------------------
    This is precious, though!:
    “We’re still here chugging along,” Bill said when asked about his 44-year-marriage that, dramas notwithstanding, survived. “We weathered all kinds of challenges,” said Hillary, “many of which are known to you.” Then Bill again, “I try to loosen her up. She tries to tighten me up.”
