I just returned from Little Rock where I, along with several other legislators, had the privilege to meet with Senator Hillary Clinton. She did field questions and gave her thoughts on No Child Left Behind, Iraq, health care, alternative fuels and several other queries from the group. We had roughly an hour with the Senator and then she was off to a private fundraiser in LR. Earlier at the Capitol, she recieved a public endorsement from Governor Beebe, and he provided opening remarks to us citing his support and belief in her ability to handle the job. I enjoyed the opportunity to meet and talk with the probable Democratic nominee. If any of the other candidate's invite me to a meeting, I will be happy to attend.
