Adventures in headline writing: national media agrees on Clinton's trip to Arkansas

CLINTON: As we diversify our economy, we must also diversify our headline mad libs.
  • CLINTON: As we diversify our economy, we must also diversify our headline mad libs.

Bill Clinton is in town
, which means swarms of national journos who trail the Clintons like squarely dressed Deadheads following a band are descending on the Natural State. You'll know them by their world-weary pre-written ledes and their #clintonworld Tweetdecks. 

You'd almost think that we could just have one single Clinton beat reporter for every newspaper everywhere, since everyone is going to write almost exactly the same headline. 

What say you, Politico?

"Bill Clinton tries to save Arkansas from GOP" 

USA Today

"Bill Clinton tries to rescue Arkansas for Democrats"

CNN: 

"Bill Clinton plays savior for Arkansas Democrats"

And you, Time

"Bill Clinton Tries to Save Democrats in Arkansas"

Should be fun to play this game with Hillary speculation in the coming months. 

Here's the crowd gathered to see Clinton in Conway:
