Former President Bill Clinton will plug his wife's presidential bid during an expected appearance this weekend at the University of Utah, but should there be an admission fee of $50?

Give us a break. Even pro-Clinton students say forget the fundraising. "We're college students, we're poor," one student said.

Another student said, "I think it should be open for everybody to come see and not just a person with $50 in their pocket."

The former president is expected to speak at the A. Ray Olpin University Union Ballroom before that night's $500-a-plate Park City bash, but this woman says she wouldn't walk across the street. "Personally, you'd have to pay me to attend. So, I can't really say I would go unless you paid me a rather large amount," she said.

How much? She says "considerable."

Clinton is scheduled to speak at the university on Sunday at 3 p.m.
