An appearance by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Defense Secretary Robert Gates at George Washington University last night provided students there with a rare opportunity.
It's not often that two Cabinet secretaries make joint public appearances, so for students, like G. W. freshman Kara Dunford, it was a evening well worth the effort. "At some places people camp out for concert tickets and here it's like, 'we're going to see the two secretaries,'" says Dunford. "It definitely speaks to how politically active the campus is."
Some students waited in line overnight to obtain one of the coveted tickets, which were distributed in less than five minutes.
