I was only mistaken as a member of the Press Corps twice. I was given lots of smiles, and room to shoot. I stood, I listened, I shot and I cheered. I even had a banner clutched somewhere on my person that I wanted to wave around (but nooo, I had two cameras attached to my person as well). I had tears in my eyes when Bill Clinton was introduced. (No, I don't know why..)
Yes, I was there, at UNM, for Bill Clinton's speech.
It was the most incredible experience I've ever been a part of. I wasn't old enough to vote for Bill the first time around, so it was amazing to see this man, today, less than 100 feet from me.
I guess you just had to be there.
