Bono Emails Hillary (Snubbed by Aides)


I liked to see an elitist star snubbed.

From CNBC:
On May 27, 2009, a person working for the Irish rock star Bono emailed a request for help under the heading "Bono/NASA." The singer wanted to do a linkup with the International Space Station during his concert tour. Who was the right contact?

That one, the Clinton people couldn't handle. Bill Clinton's former key aide Doug Band emailed a terse reply: "No clue." Six hours later, a top aide of Hillary Clinton, Huma Abedin, also threw in the towel.
But the elitist did find a non-Hillary connection:
 Bono eventually found what he was looking for. By July, Rolling Stone reported that year, his live set in Barcelona, Spain, included a live chat with the commander of the space station on a giant video screen.
