Like hard white chalk on a blackboard, Hillary went down home to talk to black folk in Selma. You cannot listen to it without squirming in pain. As bad as it was, and it was awful, it seems as if:
Most of crowd outside church leaves before Clinton speaks
Lisa Horn, Montgomery Advertiser
SELMA — Most of the hundreds of people gathered outside of First Baptist Church to hear Sen. Hillary Clinton speak left before she had even begun.
The large gathering of people standing outside the church to hear Clinton, slowly dissipated — many joining the crowd outside Brown Chapel AME Church to hear Barack Obama — as they realized there were no speakers set up so that they would be able to hear the speech she gave inside.
“I just hate that they don’t have (a sound system) set up,” said Dorethia Albert, who had been in front of First Baptist to hear Clinton, but now stood listening to Obama’s speech.
“They should know to do that by now,” said the Atlanta native. “They have this every year.”
A small group of onlookers outside the church did get to watch Clinton’s speech by standing near a small screen by a CNN satellite truck.
