Scholastic Student Reporter
I attended the rally as a reporter for Scholastic News Online. While waiting for General Clark, I started interviewing some Clark supporters who were waiting in the freezing cold for their candidate. I asked them who they were, what their job was, and why they were supporting Clark.
Some people said they liked Clark because of his military background. They said he would do well in the White House during military situations.
We waited a long time for Clark, and when he did come out, he did not say much. I think it was too cold. The temperature was about 11 degrees with a below-zero wind-chill factor.
After urging people to vote for him, Clark worked his way through the crowd, shaking people's hands. He did not take questions from the press. I was hoping to get to ask him a question about gun violence.
