- A long line formed outside the airport hangar just before 8 a.m. Sunday, when the doors opened for Clinton’s gathering. Diane Keefauver, 56, of Missoula, had already been there for four hours, sleeping in the car with her two dogs. She wasn’t taking any chances with getting a good seat.
- “I was so excited to be here, even my dogs could feel it,” said Keefauver, who was impressed with the work Clinton did as first lady. “The first thing she does is roll up her sleeves and work on health care instead of passing out tea.”
