The Clinton rally was held at the Celebration Barn in Cumming, Iowa. It was packed. We had a mobility-impaired person with us, and had emailed the campaign about that, so we were given reserved seats right up front. While we waited for the candidate to arrive, we got to enjoy the Maple Street Band play a variety of political and patriotic music, including Happy Days are Here Again and God Bless America. This time the stage had a backdrop of people as well as a gigantic American flag.
Hillary and entourage finally arrived. After introductions, she began her very well-received speech. I had a great vantage point to draw, and after the speech, to shake hands. I showed her my drawing of people listening to her and asked her to sign it. (Secret service asked me to put away my pen, she was signing with her own pen). I admired the fact that she wrote her name so as not write over the lines of my drawing (the man's leg and shoe). Also in the drawing are Christie Vilsack (former first lady of Iowa) and Chelsea Clinton. Hillary herself is not in the drawing.
