  • FIRSTS: Hillary Clinton greets Ginger Beebe.
Some 150 people were already in line at 7 a.m. this morning for the 11:30 a.m. book signing by Hillary Clinton at the Chenal Walmart Supercenter. About 1,000 were expected to make it through with a book — one per customer. She was greeted warmly during her two-hour signing stint for her "Hard Choices.'

The crowd was warm toward the former secretary of state and first lady, with many saying they wanted to wish her well. A number sayd they were "ready for Hillary," the battle cry of an independent group of old friends and supporters that is raising money and information for a 2016 presidential campaign.

Well-wishers included a successor Arkansas First Lady, Ginger Beebe.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
