Hillary Clinton to the rescue of Valentine's Day couple

By Echo Reporter, Feb. 7, 2008

A HAMPSHIRE man's dream Valentine's Day wedding has been saved - thanks to US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Winchester romantic Tim Randall and his American girlfriend Whitney Edwards won a competition to be married at the top of New York's Empire State Building, but the wedding was threatened as Tim struggled to get a visa in time.

With no help available on Tim's side of the pond, Whitney took their fight to the top - and to the rescue came Mrs Clinton who took time out from campaiging to become the Democratic party presidential candidate and "opened the doors" for Tim.

The pair will now go ahead with their sky-high nuptials on Valentine's Day.

Tim, 25, who grew up in Winchester and studied at Henry Beaufort School, started his transatlantic romance with Whitney, 24, when they met while studying at university in London.

Their wedding was planned for July this year - but was rocketed forward when Whitney won a competition in US bridal magazine Brides.com.

Tim's mother Noreen Randall said: "Just before Christmas, Whitney entered a competition to win a wedding at the top of the Empire State Building on Valentine's Day.

"Amazingly, she and Tim were one of 14 couples who won the top prize.

"That was just amazing news.

"Whitney had taken Tim to the Empire State Building on his first trip to the States and they both thought it was the most romantic place they had ever been."

However, the couple hit problems when they tried to quickly arrange a green card for Tim so he could move to the US.

Mrs Randall, of Mews Lane, Winchester, added: "Tim wasn't expecting to move out until July, so there was a real rush to get things sorted in time.

"We went to our local MP in Winchester, but he couldn't help.

"Tim was getting desperate, so Whitney tried to help from her end. She knew someone who knew someone who knew Hillary Clinton, so they went to her for help.

"Whatever she did, she opened the doors for Tim. Now he can have his dream wedding."

Tim and Whitney will tie the knot at 8.30am on Valentine's Day in a luxury ceremony paid for by Brides.com.

-------------------------

My guess is that they must have mailed their petition in in like, November or December.

So yeah, they won a contest. The makes them deserving of special treatment? There are so many people with dying parents, or fiances with health problems, but no.... THEY dodn't get special treatment. :angry:

Seriously it makes everyone angry for a real reason. But can you imagine people that have been waiting for their NOA2 for months?

so let's evebody get a weddin on the empire state building and call this woman called Hillary CLinton, but remember call while is still on election because after that they will just forget to do things for people. and besides that is not how the process is supose to work. People need to wait just like evebody be a friend or send a letter to a senator DOES NOT MAKE YOU ANY SPECIAL. If someone wants to be speacial? go to the USCIS website and request an accelerated process make sure you read the readlines so see the conditions for that. =/ It just pisses me off specially when you wake up feeling hopefully waiting for this process and see that the office may not aprove your case today because of a case like this one. Let's just to thing on a fair way and wait they do their job fairly.
