Confirmed - Clinton not recession proof

I recently posted about how Bill Clinton was not able to draw a full house today at the Canadian National Exhibition.  Instead of the expected 25,000 attendees, they were looking at 10,000 to 12,000.  Well Bill Clinton spoke today and attendance was pegged at 10,000 (or 12,000 plus excuses if you read the apologistic National Post).  The CTV television network though, pegs it at 10,000 and as well, underwhelming.
Former U.S. President Bill Clinton spoke to thousands in Toronto on Saturday during a late-afternoon speaking engagement at the Canadian National Exhibition.
Clinton flew into Toronto immediately after attending a funeral service for late Senator Edward Kennedy in Boston.

About 10,000 people gathered in BMO Field to hear the high-profile speaker. It was a disappointing number for CNE organizers who thought Clinton would draw in about 25,000 people.

At the last minute, the CNE announced it would be selling tickets to the event for $5 plus the cost of admission to the fair grounds. Tickets were originally priced between $20 and $50.
 Confirmed - Bill Clinton is NOT recession proof.  Surely, you're crushed by that.
