The whole experience of taking pictures of a possible future president, as well as an extremely distinguished man was quite surreal. It was, so far, the greatest experience of my life, but at the same time, I wish I was one of the students who asked questions or a student on the stage who actually got to shake Senator McCain’s hand. Either way, all three of us Villanova Times editors, as well as every person at the event should feel as though we all were part of something very special. This event showed that when a top politician comes to campus or anywhere else for that matter, it still is more popular than basketball or any sport. The Villanova community was going wild for Hardball and McCain. Everyone at the event bragged afterwards, I am sure, about their unique expererience. They were at the event where Senator McCain wisecracked about Hillary’s youtube video taking a shot of whiskey by saying “Whatever makes Hillary happy.” Overall, the event was very positive. Taking nearly 200 photographs of mostly two special men was actually extremely fun and self-rewarding because of the amazing atmosphere in the Pavilion and the nature of those two distinguished gentlemen on the stage. There is much to be talked about in terms of this event. More posts will be forthcoming, and my many pictures will be updated. In the upcoming months, more oppurtunities such as this will make themselves available as a result of the upcoming election. Villanova should be proud that they were a part of it.
