I asked it and found her response very articulate.

That must leave the Swarthmoreans feel… almost dumped in the Delaware River. Anticipation is starting to build palpably in Transaltoonia. In ten days or so, of course, Pennsylvania will be “so last April,” as the wave moves on to Carolina and the real Indiana, but it’s nice to be noticed for the time being.

I didn’t even notice it in E.H.’s account, because it’s the same term we used back in the day, when Eleanor Roosevelt stopped by the campus to campaign for Gore Vidal! (Kidding.)

(Which is getting enthused and even fervent coverage in the small town press out here in the west. The Leahy crowd was clearly nuts to want the primaries to end early a few weeks ago. Even presuming just some modest or even token reconciliation between whoever wins and whoever doesn’t in August, the dividend from firing up so many American hinterlands should be great in November. I don’t think the party pros and the coastal punditocracy quite understand this phenomenon yet).

In any event, a fascinating first-person account, E.H. I imagine the Clintons’ getting swept away by her aides–however disappointing after you and your mom did her a great favor–only illustrates how scripted and scheduled these campaign events have to be. The Big Dog is said by the local paper here to have lingered for 20 minutes shaking every hand he could, even though he was supposed to be in the next town two minutes after his speech ended. But he always was a schedule buster! Only one question: What’s a bi-co student?
