Clinton and the King
The New York senator opened her campaign day with a surprising twist while shaking hands in a local diner—a personal serenade from The King.
"A black Elvis," exclaimed Clinton, as she was greeted Dwayne Turner, decked out in the signature white suit and impressive sunglasses.
"This is Clinton Country," said Turner, who quickly broke into the opening bars of "Blue Suede Shoes," drawing a delighted laugh from Clinton.
"We're going to build a bridge to the 21st Century," said Turner. "We're going to do this thing."
"Yes, we are," replied Clinton, interrupting her greeting of patrons.
Turner said he performs often in the Little Rock area. His business cards say, "Let me shake up any occasion for you."
Clinton started her campaign day by dropping by a local diner to greet customers during the breakfast hour, but Turner quickly stole the moment—and the attention of a bank of cameras—with his crooning entertainment of the presidential candidate. Clinton was building ties to activists in the state where she was first lady before her husband was elected president.
