Hillary Clinton’s Idea of Fun…

May 31, 2008 9:07pm

ABC News’ Eloise Harper reports: Does standing for six hours in a moving pick-up truck with dirt and wind blowing in your face, waving and waving the whole time, sound like fun? Well according to Sen. Hillary Clinton it was the most fun she has ever had campaigning.

"We went through many cities, and I was so happy to be standing up in the pick-up truck waving at all of the people on the streets and in the cars who were driving by," she said in San Juan, Puerto Rico. "It was the most fun I think I’ve had campaigning anywhere."

Clinton did take a few breaks while canvassing -– but as others began to fade at the end of the long day watching the senator wave to people from the truck, she kept smiling and waving, as the loudspeakers that followed her blasted songs by Ricky Martin and others, with "Hillary Clinton" incorporated into the lyrics.

At the end of the day, Clinton addressed the Mita Congregation, one where a few thousand of people gathered wearing all white.

"I feel very much at home here because I believe that we understand that we are called not to lead just hearers of the word, but doers of the word," she said.

Clinton also expressed her feeling of closeness with this island, saying as she has said frequently: "I am not a stranger to these beautiful islands, nor to the people of Puerto Rico. I am proud to represent 1 million Puerto Ricans in New York. I have also felt as though I was your senator as well as New York’s senator."
