Presidents on Labor Day

Happy Labor Day!  I begin this year's celebration with President Obama's Weekly Address: Building Upon the Legacy of Labor Day.

In this week’s address, President Obama commemorated Labor Day by highlighting the economic progress we’ve made over the course of his administration.
For more, read the White House's Labor Day Proclamation.

Mr. Obama wasn't the only president, past, present, or future celebrating Labor Day.  WXYZ reported this morning on Bill Clinton to march in Detroit's Labor Day parade, which also mentioned that Hillary would be in Cleveland today for that city's Labor Day parade.

Here's the actual footage of Clinton walking in Detroit's Labor Day parade .

The previous clip mentioned that "prominent Democrats" usually appeared in the Labor Day parade.  That's certainly the case here.  In addition to Mr. Clinton, I saw Senator Debbie Stabenow, U.S. Representative Debbie Dingell, and Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan walking alongside the former President and his Secret Service detail.  I'm sure others more familiar with Detroit political figures could recognize City Council members, County Commissioners, and other local politicians in the video.

The first WXYZ clip also mentioned Donald Trump's visit to Detroit on Saturday.  I'll have more on that visit as well as that of Green Party nominee Jill Stein tomorrow.  Stay tuned.
