Bill Clinton To Visit Homewood.

Posted by Elwin Green on September 7, 2016 at 1:30 PM

Former President Bill Clinton will be in Homewood Friday to drum up support for his wife Hilary's presidential run.

My initial rush of excitement about this died pretty quickly, when I thought about the traffic problems likely to be created by his visit - especially to the extent that it coincides with activities celebrating the life of House of Manna pastor Eugene "Freedom" Blackwell, who passed last week.

The homegoing service for Pastor Blackwell is at 11 a.m. Bill Clinton is scheduled to be at the New Greater Pittsburgh Coliseum from 11:45 a.m. - 12:45 p.m. House of Manna and the Coliseum are just a block away from each other, so I expect a big mess, traffic-wise.

Beyond that, I find myself asking, "How can Homewood benefit from Bill Clinton's visit?"

I don't see any immmediate benefit. The only thing I can imagine is that this visit is part of a long game by Homewood's state representative, Ed Gainey, whom Coliseum owner John Brewer credits for pulling it off. And by Mayor Bill Peduto, whose multiple visits to the Obama White House could lead to a relationship with Ms. Clinton, should she become president, that could bring something to Pittsburgh and to Homewood.

That possibility is enough to arouse my interest, but not my excitement. This is what would give me an emotional rush, and make me want to back Ms. Clinton: if Bill Clinton repented for his role in intensifying the War on Drugs, and if Hillary Clinton pledged to do everything in her power to undo its damage if elected.

Otherwise, I invite you to help me see what I might be missing - How might Homewood benefit from Bill Clinton's visit - or for that matter, from a second Clinton presidency?
