Following in the footsteps on Monday’s awesome DNC fundraiser was the DC for Clark fundraiser starring General Clark himself! We got a bunch of GW for Clark members to work the fundraiser which was held at the Omni Shoreham hotel in northwest DC. Laura, Chad, and I worked the VIP table and got to meet Congressman Charlie Rangel, Congressman Mike Thompson, and Congressman Rahm Emanuel (who loved the hats Laura and I were wearing). Our hats are so sweet…everyone loves them…many thanks to Kevin for providing them. We were standing behind the VIP table when Clark came in and he was totally checking out our hats…probably thinking “What the hell are those girls wearing?”
So anyways, Clark gave an awesome speech, we got to shake his hand, and we all squealed with delight (yes, even the guys…although it was mostly the girls). What a nice guy…I love him!!
Oh yeah, for the second time this week I saw the guy that plays Francisco Duprey (“Look, Francisco Duprey AGAIN!”). So not only is he a Democrat, he is a Clark supporter as well. I’ve learned his real name is Roger Smith, but I’ll just continue to call him Francisco Duprey because, well, why not?
I also took home Mickey Kantor’s name badge…he didn’t show up, so it seemed like a nice souvenir since I spend way too much time on the U.S. Trade Representative’s website (thanks to my Intellectual Property pro-sem). Yeah yeah, I know I’m a poli-sci dork, no need to point that out.
Clark is awesome, love him…love him a lot. What a guy…I would lit drop every house in America for this guy. HOOOOOAH CLARK!
