The First Time I Met Bill Clinton

I’ve already told the story how I met President Clinton in 2000 while driving Presidential Motorcade. Well that was actually the second time I shook Clinton’s hand. Way back in July 1992 while attending The Ohio State University, a friend of mine showed up at my apartment with Special Guest passes to see then candidate Bill Clinton. Always up for a celebrity sighting, I was game.

Clinton and Gore spoke for a while and then ran down and greeted all the people with the Special Guest passes. Rapid fire handshaking down the line. Below is a scan of the pass that provided me access.
