Clinton House Museum has many reasons to celebrate jazz in April! Bill Clinton is widely known as a jazz lover and musician himself, so quite naturally we think we should honor that legacy during  Jazz Appreciation Month. This year we're especially thrilled to have Jim Greeson, award-winning composer and musician, perform on solo acoustic guitar at the Museum.

Northwest Arkansas Jazz Society members can get tickets for $20. All others are $25.00. Buy tickets online HERE or pay at the door! 

Greeson was a professor of music at the UA for 36 years where he taught music composition, music theory, guitar and directed the jazz ensemble. As a composer Greeson’s compositions have been heard in New York’s Carnegie Hall and published by publishers in New York, Colorado, and the United Kingdom.

Hillary Clinton received a thunderous applause and a downpour of balloons on Thursday, July 28, 2016, as she accepted the Democratic nomination for President of the United States of America. The first woman to be nominated for President by a major political party, this marks a major historic milestone in American history.
 
“And so it is with humility … determination … and boundless confidence in America’s promise … that I accept your nomination for President of the United States!” Hillary stated.
 
Her speech recounted memories of growing up and working hard for opportunities. There is no doubt that she and Bill Clinton were setting the stage for history during their time in Fayetteville, Arkansas in the 1970’s though they may not have thought so at the time. Hillary mentioned her start with Bill and how it paved the way for where she is today - “And Bill, that conversation we started in the law library 45 years ago is still going strong.”

Hillary Clinton formally nominated for President of the United States by the Democratic Party
Former President Bill Clinton recounts their time together in Northwest Arkansas

On the night in which delegates at the Democratic National Convention officially nominated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as the party's candidate for president of the United States, former President Bill Clinton recalled the couple's early days, including their first house where they eventually married -- now the Clinton House Museum. 

 
By formally securing the nomination, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton becomes the first woman in the United States to lead a major party's ticket for the White House. 
 
As the keynote speaker Tuesday, Bill Clinton shared stories about their life together in Arkansas, first recounting their time in Fayetteville. Both Clintons taught at the University of Arkansas School of Law and Secretary Clinton founded the first legal aid clinic in Northwest Arkansas before Bill became attorney general. They then would go on to serve as the state's governor and first lady. 
 
In the speech President Clinton said:
“[O]ne day I was driving her to the airport to fly back to Chicago when we passed this little brick house that had a for sale sign on it. And she said, boy, that’s a pretty house. It had 1,100 square feet, an attic, fan and no air conditioner in hot Arkansas, and a screened-in porch.

On Tuesday, July 12, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders endorsed the presidential campaign of former U.S. Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, giving her an undisputed path to be the Democratic Party nominee in the 2016 general election. 

The former rivals for the party nomination spoke together in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, just weeks before the Democratic National Convention, which is being held in Philadelphia July 25-28. 

To learn more about Hillary’s early life and the beginning of her and former U.S. President Bill Clinton’s political careers, visit the Clinton House Museum.

  


President Clinton issued a statement Wednesday hours after the death of his friend, the poet and author Dr. Maya Angelou.

“With Maya Angelou’s passing, America has lost a national treasure; and Hillary and I, a beloved friend,” Clinton said. “The poems and stories she wrote and read to us in her commanding voice were gifts of wisdom and wit, courage and grace.”
Angelou read the inaugural poem when Clinton was sworn in for his first term in 1993. In his statement, Clinton described the experience as “electrifying” and said it was followed by “years of friendship.”

“I will always be grateful for her electrifying reading of ‘On the Pulse of Morning’ at my first inaugural, and even more for all the years of friendship that followed,” said Clinton. “Now she sings the songs the Creator gave to her when the river “and the tree and the stone were one.”

Clinton concluded by sending his “deepest sympathies” to Angelou’s son, Guy Johnson, and his family.

 University of Arkansas Alumni, Addie Benson (pictured on right) recently featured the Clinton House Museum in her travel blog, Old World New Girl.   Addie is a lover of architecture, sustainability, art, fashion, food, travel, and photography. She is a self-proclaimed renaissance woman and has been showing her readers the world through her eyes for two years.

From Addie herself:  Think of OWNG as one long, never ending road trip of exploring this old world we’ve inherited, but with a new set of eyes. While on this journey, we’ll photograph all that we see, especially amazing architecture and art, we’ll try delicious food and recipes. We must certainly dress our best and try not to be fashionably late. We will do this all in style while being sustainable and mindful that this is the only earth that we inherit and leave behind for the next sets of new eyes to love and explore.

HUFFINGTON POST - An overwhelming majority of Democrats want Hillary Clinton to run in 2016, according to a New York Times/CBS poll released Wednesday.

More than 80 percent of self-described Democrats surveyed were supportive of Clinton running, with a margin of error of plus or minus six percent. 13 percent of Democrats didn't want her to run, and five percent said they didn't know enough to decide. 52 percent of Independents also said they wanted her to run.

Opinions were more divided when it came to Vice President Joe Biden, who has said there is a 50-50 chance he will run in 2016. 42 percent of Democrats wanted him to run, and 39 percent did not.

Respondents were also uncertain about Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who was singled out by The New Republic in November as Hillary Clinton's biggest potential challenger. Only 22 percent of Democrats said they wanted Warren to run, and 56 percent said they didn't know enough about her to decide.

In contrast to the Democrats' unity, there was no clear favorite candidate among the Republicans surveyed. 41 percent said they'd like Jeb Bush to run, with 27 against a Bush candidacy. 39 percent were for Rand Paul running, and 21 percent were opposed.

One thing was clear: in the wake of the Fort Lee traffic scandal, more Republicans wanted New Jersey Governor Chris Christie not to run (41 percent) than wanted him to run (31 percent).

It's worth noting that the primaries are still two years away, and that polls tend to increase in accuracy as elections draw closer.

The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus three percent for the entire group surveyed, and a margin of error of plus or minus six percent for figures specifically about Democrats, Republicans, and Independents.

1,644 adults were surveyed by phone between Feb. 19-23. Of those surveyed, 519 described themselves as Republicans, 515 as Democrats, and 610 as independents. The poll included both land lines and cell phones.

Earlier this month, when asked the will you/won't you question, Mrs Clinton said she was not thinking about running for president, but was thinking about when she would think about it. And she told a group of Long Island supporters this would be "sometime next year".

Yet a few weeks ago on her first foreign foray since stepping down as Secretary of State, Mrs Clinton finally opened up. She arrived in Scotland to receive an honorary doctor of laws degree at St Andrews University, recognising her achievements as a politician and diplomat.
