An alternate script for Hillary Clinton’s famous 3:00 am ad relating to this Athletics-Angels marathon game:
It’s 3:00 a.m. and your children are safe and asleep. But there is a phone in the White House and it’s ringing. Something’s happening in the world, specifically Oakland.

Have a great holiday filled with music, laughter, and plenty of Egg Nog!
