On the Lite Side with Hillary Clinton: Friday Date Night

Things have been pretty heavily policy driven, campaign focused, and watchdog alert on these page in the past few weeks, but it is time for a weekend break.  On Friday in Florida, Hillary made two major speeches.  She was home, however, in time for Friday date night with her best dude.  The Clintons were in the house at Madison Square Garden in New York for a U2 concert that evening.

Bill and Hillary Clinton joined the audience for U2's Friday night performance at Madison Square Garden, the last of the band's eight shows in New York City and the conclusion of their North American tour.
The political power couple even got a special shout-out from frontman Bono, 55, during a performance of "Pride (In the Name of Love)," according to Billboard, when he thanked the former U.S. president for his efforts to broker peace in Ireland.
