Missing Bill

Posted By on Sat, Oct 1, 2011 at 9:25 PM

Little Rock got a taste of the days when the budget was balanced, the debt was being paid down and the U.S. was widely admired around the world. Those were the days, my friend.

Thanks to Brian Chilson, the eternally working Arkansas Times photographer, for the quintessential campaign-style photos of Bill and Hillary Clinton nourishing the Arkansas roots that carried them through some tough days in the winter of 1992. The crowd at the 20th anniversary of his presidential campaign announcement today was 3,000 to 5,000. Parties continued into the evening at many venues. I can tell you at 9:30 p.m. that, if you dropped by the Capital Hotel bar, you'd see some famous people, though the likes of Sidney Blumethal, Joe Conason, Sean Wilentz and Gene Lyons — to name a few — wouldn't necessarily be instantly recognizable.

Update: Here's a slideshow of photos from the weekend by Brian Chilson.
