Rock the Vote

In December 2000, Jill had the honor of explaining the Electoral College process to Bono and his international friends while enjoying an after dinner drink at the Mercer Hotel. Bono and his pals didn’t understand why we couldn’t just “count the votes” to decide if Gore or Bush was our next President. Good thing Jill paid attention in history class.
