I liked to see an elitist star snubbed.
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?But the elitist did find a non-Hillary connection:
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.
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.-RW
