Clinton museum desperate for a Utahn

SHARE Clinton museum desperate for a Utahn

Wanted: One curious tourist. Must be from Utah.

As of Wednesday, the museum created at President Clinton's childhood home had drawn visitors from 49 states, except Utah."We had our first visitor from Wyoming the other day; she was so excited," said Clinton Center executive director Becky Moore.

The center has hosted Russian generals, South African businessmen, Indian liquor dealers, and China's U.S. ambassador, among others. But no one from the Beehive State has signed the register. "If you know anyone from Utah, please send them our way," Moore said.

Wyoming and Utah were the last two states that did not have a visitor to the center. The race ended May 23 when Suzanne Cross of Douglas, Wyo., who wryly identified herself as the state's lone Democrat, signed the book. Utah's counterpart hasn't made the trip yet.

"Come on," said Spence Kinard, assistant director of the Utah Travel Council, when told the news. "We'll see what we can do to correct that." He speculated that Clinton's popularity, or lack thereof, may be a reason for the Utah-free register. Utah was the only state where Clinton finished third in 1992.
