AMY GUTMANN NOMINATING HILLARY CLINTON FOR PRESIDENT & THE RESPONSE OF THE PANEL ON STAGE

The first person to mention that Hillary Clinton should run for president in 2016, was Penn President Amy Gutmann, a National Constitution Center trustee who chaired the committee that selected Clinton. The audience responded with thunderous applause.

This is how the dignitaries on the dais responded. I think it says a lot. Mayor Nutter very pleased, Cynthia MacLeod, smiling no applause, Doug DeVos, President, Amway and National Constition Center Executive Committee Chairman enthusiastically applauding. Now for that back row, can’t really tell with William R. Sasso, Esq., chairman of Stradley Ronon Stevens and Young, LLP.(he did give a very nice toast to Hillary Clinton during the cocktail party [those photos you’ll see in my Philly Mag column]), polite appaluse from Liberty Medal 2013 sponsors Ira M. Lubert
not so much from Daniel K. Fitzpatrick, Citizens Bank President and CEO for Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, but a big smile, and
Governor Jeb Bush, chairman of the National Constitution Center Board of Trustees is thinking, “I hope one of these guys ‘nominates’ me when they get up to the microphone.

 Now when Mayor Nutter mentioned it, Amy enthusiastically applauding, big smile Doug DeVos, love the side eye from Ira M. Lubert and now there’s polite applause from
Daniel K. Fitzpatrick, and

Governor Jeb Bush is hopefully thinking Bush 2024 sounds good. Check out my PhillyMag Column
