It seemed that everyone at the Yale Law School reunion Saturday was talking about Hillary Rodham Clinton running for president in 2016. Except Clinton herself.
She talked about children. Impoverished children in particular.
Clinton, 65, was in town to receive the law school’s highest award, the Award of Merit, the same award her husband Bill Clinton received in 1993, the year he became the 42nd President of the United States. It was alumni weekend at the law school, and Hillary Clinton’s 40th class reunion.

UPDATE—(This story contains the final election count.) After a long political campaign against a tenacious opponent, Democratic incumbent Ed Meyer won a fifth term in the State Senate tonight after Branford, Guilford, Durham and Killingworth delivered the votes he needed to keep his 12th District seat. He lost Madison, but only by 200 votes and he lost in North Branford.
Democratic State Rep. Lonnie Reed won a third term representing the 102nd District, bringing in 6,001 votes or 58 percent of the votes to her opponent Republican Lori Nicholson’s 4,352 votes or 42 percent tally. This was Nicholson first stab at a state office. She lost last year in a bid for a Board of Education seat.
State Rep. Pat Widlitz, who represents Guilford and two sections of Branford, also retained her seat in the 98th District. Widlitz has served in the Assembly for 18 years and is currently the chair of the legislature’s Finance, Revenue and Bonding Committee. She ran unopposed. Reed told her supporters she was proud to serve them and the town and she was thrilled to be re-elected. “We’re the real deal. Our core values are aligned with the community,” she said. Widlitz agreed.

A “brigade” of liberal city and suburban door-knockers descended on New Haven as an SOS bulletin for the future of the U.S. Senate arrived home from Charlotte.

Bill Clinton does support Barack Obama for president. Honestly. Truly.
