WASHINGTON D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Been there, done that. With those words, Hillary Clinton today announced that she will scrap the traditional presidential inaugural ball that usually accompanies a presidential inauguration.
Confident of her victory in the November U.S. presidential elections, Clinton said there was no point in holding a presidential inauguration ball when she already had two of those during her husband’s time as president.
Instead, Hillary said she would invite all current and former White House staff to a homecoming dinner to mark her (and husband Bill’s) return to the most famous address on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C.
“It will be a simple but meaningful celebration which will save the U.S. government hundreds of thousands of dollars that would otherwise be spent on a lavish, elitist, and insignificant event,” Hillary told The Adobo Chronicles.
Change is, indeed, coming!
