Unlike the majority of high-profile guests, President Clinton elected not to sit in a suite but instead right on the ice. I'm glad he did, too, it resulted in a pretty cool moment.
Gesturing to somebody on the ice, Clinton was soon getting a puck flipped over the boards and into his waiting hands. Watch.
Yes, after giving the all-too presidential thumbs up, President Clinton than gave a salute to the ice crew member. It would have only been better if it were Mike Rupp who tossed the puck. Because apparently somebody was watching the Winter Classic.
Politics aside, Clinton always seemed like a guy I'd enjoy having a beer with (same goes for George W Bush). This does nothing to change my mind there. Giving the Jagr salute back to a Ranger? Awesome.
