CLINTON WORKED rope line after his resounding endorsement of Kathleen Kane. (Usually no photographer is allowed this close to Democratic Partyâ€™s second-hottest property.)
PRESIDENT Bill Clinton told a large crowd of Kathleen Kane supporters because of her experience, she would be a better Attorney General on her first day in office than he had been in the same office in Arkansas.

Closeup pictures of President Bill Clinton are hard to come by. Our Contributing Editor Bonnie Squires pulled off this coup â€“ but it was a struggle.
She even had her camera confiscated for a while â€“ despite the fact she was a paid attendee at Democrat Attorney General aspirant Kathleen Kaneâ€™s gala fundraiser at the Radisson Plaza-Warwick Hotel Monday night.
Why the tight security? Itâ€™s not uncommon at high-roller fundersâ€™ affairs in both parties. One reason is some major donors donâ€™t want the publicity of being seen at events with high pricetags.
Clinton is a special case, though. As the Demsâ€™ superstar surrogate on the campaign circuit, his picture is literally worth money. One of his jobs is to take pictures with attendees. These pix are later shared with attendees â€“ as chachkes, in return for handsome contributions.
Because youâ€™re a Philadelphia Public Record reader, though, you get to see these photos for free.
