WICHITA — Well round up some $2 bills and get me to Vegas.
Turns out when I said my money was on George W. Bush being the speaker for the Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce’s annual meeting this year, I was right.
The former president will follow in his father’s footsteps — again — when he appears at Century II on Nov. 3.
George H.W. Bush spoke at the chamber’s annual meeting in 2005 and drew the biggest audience to date for the event with 4,000 people.
Never miss a local story.
Truth be told, I had a little help in my prediction. A tipster dressed as a Secret Service agent dropped off a $2 bill as a hint Tuesday.
Since Thomas Jefferson is on the bill, I almost took it to mean William Jefferson Clinton would be this year’s speaker.
Given the Republican-leaning chamber’s choice among four living ex presidents — two Democrats and one who already spoke here — narrowing down the list wasn’t exactly rocket science.
Still, just in case, I may go buy a lottery ticket.
