Historic event on Monday draws ticket seekers today to Covelli Centre


Bonnie Leaming of Austintown was first in line at the Covelli Centre to get a free ticket to see and hear President Barack Obama and former President Bill Clinton at a rally here Monday afternoon.

An Obama supporter, Leaming, 57, arriving at 7:30 a.m., was among a growing crowd of about 500 by 11 a.m. who gathered in a line winding around the building. She said she likes the president’s truthfulness and his record: “I feel he is somebody we can trust.”

The crowd, a mix of black and white, young and old and ages in between, lined up to get tickets for what many see as a historic event and a rare chance to be in the presence of a sitting president and former president at one time.

About 5,000 to 6,000 tickets will be available for the rally, the first time President Obama and Clinton have campaigned together since the Democratic National Convention, at the Covelli Centre, 229 E. Front St.

The snap by Bonnie Learning can be used in the dictionary for the listing of "lemmings."

It gets so old hearing about how unhappy people are just because their guy isn't in the White House. If you'd al like we could raise taxes back up to where they were under Bush and let insurance companies reject you for pre-existing conditions but I can't believe anyone really wants that.

That's right RK, no democrats are Doctors, Lawyers, Bankers etc., they're all unemployed lazy non-working bums according to your post. No one works shifts other than day turn. DwightK is truely correct in his statement about how unhappy and childish some act just because their guy isn't in the White House. I guess you think it's great for insurance companies to reject people with pre-existing conditions and drop clients after they become ill. I guess you love seeing the banks deregulated so they can play the derivatives game and foreclose on peoples homes. I guess you think GM would be better off CLOSED. I guess you think we would be better off if BIN LADEN were still ALIVE. I guess it must be AWFUL to be as MISERABLE as you are.

How many times did Bill Clinton come to Youngstown when he was President? When they find it necessary to come to Youngstown a week before the election, they must see something in the numbers they don't like.

Yeah, Atown and Knight, Titled Sheeple and lemmings just like the brainwaves about to vote for Romney even after he said he doesn't care about them. Welcome to the 47%. Anyone who had anything to do with the defeat of Senate Bill 5 last year should think real carefully about voting for Romney, who has made it clear that he wants a national right to work law passed. Mitter the Flipper will flip again if he wins the election. If you think he will hold to the nonsense he is spewing at the moment, you will be in for a rude awakening if he gets elected.

IslandMike. I love how the only legs you have to stand on with Obama is how Bin Laden is dead and GM is alive. Give it a break already. Maybe Clinton could bring Monica with him. I love how Biden stays in the background. The Dems are afraid of what he might say.

Screwing the working guy over is what the GOP has ALWAYS been about. Lowering the minimum wage, right to work states, union busting, so you should be happy that they're BOTH sticking it to you guys. CONGRATULATIONS!! Now can you please quit crying? You're embarrassing.

Isn't it ironic that the two liars speaking at a facility because of the efforts of a true democrat Jim T.. His speech from the floor was approved by every Republican congressman.

Liar No1- Clinton is the same Clinton that cancelled Youngstown 6,000 federal jobs coming in 1993- He lied, said he would never forget the valley

Liar No2- Obama lied to Catholic Cardinal Dolan, Obama lied to the President of Notre Dame, Obama also lied to Gary Stupak a Democrat from Michigan who had 20 votes against Obamacare---Obama's entire life is one of lies.

Let hope UAW president King gets a chance to congratulate Clinton for his signing of NAFTA--moving 400,000plus union jobs to Mexico.

Forward Comrades, China is not that far away
