Met Hillary Clinton this past Wednesday as part of the press pool at her book signing! Had pulled an all-nighter working at the studio and ended up having to scramble over there to make it in time. Looked out of it and felt funky than I think I looked, but had a good time and enjoyed seeing Steph Brusig of The Seattle Lesbian, Kelly O of The Stranger, Marcus Yam of The Seattle Times, Joshua Trujillo of SeattlePI.com, and Barb Kinney, who as a former Clinton White House photographer and old friend of the Clintons was of course there snapping away. Made a few friends, too, and the book store staff was very gracious and accommodating. And I swear Hillary held a baby up for about a full minute with a wide-eyed expression, but I'd already put my camera away. Had enough time to take it out and attempt a shot but the photogenic moment was over. Would've been my first "politician holds a baby" image - a cliche I wouldn't mind adding to the portfolio. Won't make that mistake again!
