Did you mention they couldn't find enough folks in SC to use up the 500 tickets that they had available for the event?

Thanks, TaxRelief, for reminding me. Yeah, it's true. I guess we South Carolinians just don't like the Hildabeaste very much. Thread: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/995929/posts?page=1

That would be THIS thread:

Hundreds save place in line to meet Clinton (Bookstore only sells 200 out of 500 tickets)
The State ^ | Today | T.D. MOBLEY-MARTINEZ

The mini-muffins, chocolate-chip cookies, bottles of water and a carafe of coffee still waited for takers Sunday afternoon, but the line outside The Happy Bookseller was long gone.

In a little more than an hour after doors opened at 1 p.m., about 200 people — mostly women in their 40s — coursed through the store, all to pick up Hillary Rodham Clinton’s new book, “Living History.” The $28 purchase also buys a numbered place in line for Clinton’s book-signing between 2:30 and 4 p.m. today.

It was fewer than the 500 store owner Andy Graves had estimated last week. "I was driving in today," Graves told a customer as he took her check, "and I had this great trepidation that there would be thousands of people waiting."

He laughed.

"Oh, I’m not disappointed," Graves said later. "It’s the kind of thing that’s good to have some play, especially with Yom Kippur and with the State Fair and all that’s going on."

The good news, he said, is that there will probably be tickets available today. Only 500 will be sold.

Maria Walker, a 46-year-old auditor with the state, called not long after 1 p.m. and found that they were already issuing ticket No. 75.

"I got dressed right away and came down," she said. "I thought there was going to be an after-church crowd..."
