[The 90’s Election Specials raw: Clintons at the Hilton]

Raw footage for The 90's election specials. Bill and Hillary Clinton visit the Hilton Hotel in Chicago on Super Tuesday. Most of the tape is just press standing around and a blues band playing.

16:30Copy video clip URL Bill Clinton gives his own speech: “It is only tonight that I fully understand why they call this ‘Super Tuesday’.” “This election is a choice between more of the ’80s and something new in the ’90s.” “No more something for nothing in the 1990s! More opportunity and more responsibility!” “There is no ‘them’ in America, there is only ‘us.'”
