If you think you spend a lot on your spin classes at the gym, listen to this...
ABC News is reporting that about 45 people (the majority of them women) paid $2300/each for the chance to sit on a stationary bike and meet former President of the United States, Bill Clinton. At this fundraiser for his wife's Presidential campaign, Clinton told stories and took questions for about 30 minutes. Since this was supposed to be an opportunity to talk about health care, most of the discussion centered on Hillary Clinton's proposals to expand coverage and the importance of preventative care and exercise.
Ironically Clinton did not even workout with the group. He showed up in a suit and mentioned that he had already worked out. I think it would have been a lot more interesting to see the former President sweating away during the spin class, but that is just me. I do, however, like that we are starting to see a focus on fitness in politics. Though $2300 is a bit steep.
I am curious what you guys think on this -- Would you pay $2300 to attend a spinning class where Bill Clinton is appearing?
