Arena Shut Down Before Clinton Speech

Journalists, donors and even a few politicians are locked out of Time Warner Cable Arena, after the fire marshall declared it was filled to capacity.

At the corner of College and Trade avenues, a crowd waited to get in, but it appeared unlikely with the arrival of President Obama, making a surprise appearance to watch former President Bill Clinton speak to the convention.

Some excerpts from Clinton’s speech:

“In Tampa the Republican argument against the President’s re-election was pretty simple: We left him a total mess, he hasn’t finished cleaning it up yet, so fire him and put us back in.

“I like the argument for President Obama’s re-election a lot better. He inherited a deeply damaged economy, put a floor under the crash, began the long hard road to recovery, and laid the foundation for a more modern, more well-balanced economy that will produce millions of good new jobs, vibrant new businesses, and lots of new wealth for the innovators.”
