Bill Clinton to Harding student: ‘Are you one of the three progressives on campus?’
Emily Wood is a junior at Harding University in Searcy, Ark.
She’s also an intern at the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C.
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that Wood, 20, introduced former President Bill Clinton last week at the group’s seventh annual Campus Progress National Conference, a gathering of liberal student activists:
Before her introduction, Woods said she and Clinton had a moment to chat.
“He said, ‘Are you one of the three progressives on campus?’” at Harding, a private Christian college in Searcy she described as conservative.
“He’s been one of my heroes,” Wood said. “It was awesome.”
FeedbackGood to see an article about a progressive. I love when people realize the churches of Christ are not all conservatives; that we are in fact a group of mixed backgrounds.TiaAugust, 19 2011
