Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way

Stuck in Hillary's bunker

I thought I was being bratty when I fussed over not being able to call my editors during Sen. Clinton's speech at Baruch College. ("I'm underground! I can't live blog!") Turns out I wasn't the only one with complaints. To get cell phone reception that Tuesday, I had to maneuver through the huge crowd and up several flights of stairs to the ground level. It was a huge hassle to leave the gymnasium where Clinton was speaking — the bunker as The New Republic called it. They reckoned the Clinton camp choose the location to quell incoming news of Sen. Obama's historic nomination. It's a theory. — Emily
