The notebook: Clinton observations
People in Charlotte haven't stopped talking about Bill Clinton's speech last night.
If you listened very, very carefully, there were a couple points of interest to Illinoisans - besides that whole nominate a resident for president thing.
Let us know if you noticed others, but here's my favorite.
Clinton praised President Barack Obama's appointing of a few Republicans to his cabinet. One of them us Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood, a longtime congressman from Peoria.
Guess who presided over the Clinton impeachment hearings in the U.S. House.
Why, that'd be then U.S. Rep. Ray LaHood.
What a difference a decade makes.
