WATERLOO (KWWL) -

President Clinton speaking at an early voting event at the National Cattle Congress in Waterloo, after making a stop in Indianola earlier in the day Wednesday.

A large and enthusiastic crowd filled the building, eager to hear from President Bill Clinton.

However, for most in the room it wasn't about making a decision, but rather hearing from a leader they admire and whole heartily support.

Many not worried that Bill Clinton's past indiscretions have resurfaced in recent days.

"Well I know it hurts Trump. I would hope to God that after all these years it wouldn't hurt Hillary. In the first place, she didn't do anything and in the second place, I still like Bill. He left this country in a very good condition. He was a great president," said Waterloo native Karlene Piper.

Coming with Piper, her great-granddaughter who is already realizing the importance of civic duty.

"Women deserve to be President. We should start having women too," said Piper's great-granddaughter, Raina Reyes.

Looking to the future for young girls like her, President Clinton focused his speech on creating jobs, supporting small business, and making education affordable.

"Free tuition at every community college in the country. Free tuition at public schools like UNI, who by the way, your teams are always beating people they are not suppose to. It is really impressive," said President Bill Clinton.

But not everyone in the crowd was a supporter. Within minutes of President Clinton starting his speech, a protester in the crowd yelled out, "You are a rapist."

President Clinton responded to the protester, by telling the crowd, in part, not to hate the protester. President Clinton calling the protester a product of an unhappy work force.
