As the 2008 Democratic Presidential Race drew closer and closer between then Senator Hillary Clinton and Senator Barack Obama, former President Bill Clinton stumps for his wife, Senator Hillary Clinton, in throughout Northwest Indiana and made a stop in Schererville, Indiana at Villa Cesare. President Clinton spoke to a crowd of a couple hundred local NW Indiana residents and afterwards shook hands with those he could reach in the front (I was lucky enough to be able to reach out and shake President Clinton’s hand).
All of the major democratic candidates made their way through Northwest Indiana during the 2008 primary season. The first political event that I attended was Hillary Clinton at the Hammond Civic Center which was in March 2008. I also attended the speech of President Obama at Gary Roosevelt HS in Gary the following month as well a speech from President Obama in Wicker Park in Highland, IN on Halloween night months after the Indiana primary and days before the general election.
