Iowa City Travel Guide
Communications Professor Kembrew McLeod writes on his website that he dressed up as a robot and disrupted the speech because he wanted Clinton to apologize for misquoting African-American activist Sister Souljah in 1992 and painting her as a militant. After McLeod tossed hundreds of little slips of paper in the air, Clinton asked him to protest in a more environmentally sound manner, but Professor McLeod didn't apologize.
Even Hillary supporters have to admit she has drawn a certain benefit from having her husband on the stump. Michelle Obama shows us the "stinky" side of Barack, and Elizabeth Edwards' inspiring battle with cancer has touched a chord with millions, but Bill's political career might bring back warm memories of a pre-W age for many Democrats. Still, that history can also be a liability.
If you, too, want to get thrown out of a Clinton appearance while dressed as a robot, Madame Senator will be at the State Theatre in New Brunswick, New Jersey tonight for a fundraiser with New Jersey governor Jon Corzine and singer Tony Bennett. Next up is an event in her hometown at the Hyatt Regency Chicago on December 18.

2008 Candidates Travel / Candidates-Travel-Map / Ron Paul / Barack Obama / Chris Dodd / Mitt Romney / → All Tags
With all the talk about Cuba among the candidates for President, maybe CNN should consider holding a debate at Guantanamo Bay. First Obama talks travel in Miami, then Chris Dodd brought it up. Now almost-a-libertarian candidate Ron Paul, an obstetrician and member of the U.S. House of Representatives from East Texas, has made his pro-friendship Cuba policy the subject of his weekly newsletter.
While Paul is not a front runner--he recently nabbed 5% of the vote and 6th place in a CNN poll of Republican candidates--his campaign has drawn a fair share of attention due to its grassroots Internet efforts and for the $4.2 million he raised in one day last week, breaking Mitt Romney's one-day fundraising record. Paul will be in Cedar Rapids before heading to a college football tailgate in Iowa City, Iowa on Saturday. Next week, he'll take a page from the Democrats and travel Nevada.
