Rousing Support For Hillary

Looks like a rally to encourage Hillary Clinton to run for President in 2008 hit a little bit of a snag. The rally, designed to show that a liberal could woo Southern States was expected to draw around 200 people. It looks like the Southern States are not ready to accept her because only 20 people showed up for the rally

A Hillary Clinton rally drew critics of President Bush, nonpartisan voters looking for a strong leader, and people who want to elect a female president.

About 20 people attended the Tuesday event, the national kickoff for Hillarynow.com, a grass-roots group pushing to draft the New York senator and former first lady to run for president in 2008.

“I’ve been fired up about her for a long time,” said Mary Sneed, 64, of Pegram. “I think she can get things done. I admire what she’s done in upstate New York. If she can win over New Yorkers, she can win over anybody.”

Organizers hoped to have 200 people at the event in Nashville, a city selected to show that Democrats can win in Southern states.

They were disappointed but said they are not focused on numbers.
