    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- It was an unexpected showdown of surrogates for Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton here Wednesday, and it sure looked like Obama's representative whipped up the most excitement.

    As former President Bill Clinton was extolling his wife's credentials, Obama's campaign office in Bloomington began giving away tickets to Sunday's Dave Matthews concert at Assembly Hall.

    Jason Schechtman, 19, Deerfield, Ill., a student at IU, got his tickets about 8 p.m. after waiting more than three hours. He met folks in line who said they'd left the Clinton rally to wait for tickets.

    "I was leaning toward Obama, but this sealed the deal for sure," he said. "The Obama campaign announced this right as (Bill Clinton) was about to speak, and it brought everyone from over there to over here."

    Still, Clinton persevered. He told Indiana University students they should choose his wife for president not because she's a historic candidate but because the country's future is better off in her hands.

    His visit to Bloomington capped off Clinton's third campaign trip to Indiana, where he has made 12 appearances in 11 cities.

    On Wednesday, the former president also visited Columbus, Seymour and Bedford.

    At IU, he taught a little history to the 6,000 students at Assembly Hall.

    Clinton drew a comparison between the race between Sens. Clinton and Obama and the 1968 Democratic primary contest between Robert F. Kennedy and Eugene McCarthy:

    "Most of the blue-collar folks that knew they needed a president were for (Kennedy), and most of the university students who wanted a feeling for change were for McCarthy, and they thought he had a purer position on the Vietnam War."

    Student Rebecca Waxman, a 21-year-old from St. Louis, said, "There are Obama signs all over campus, but the fact that Hillary's husband and daughter are coming out here makes it clear that they're trying to convince Bloomington."

    How is that not bribing and abusing your campaign money?

    Mathews probably gave him the tickets. But it's trying to buy votes IMO.

    Well, giving tickets is like giving money so there were no laws broken.

    Dave Matthews rocks. :D He does tons of benefit concerts for good causes and he announced somewhat recently that he was an Obama supporter. It was only a matter of time.

    The tickets are free to anyone who lives in the state. Pretty sweet deal.
