Chevy Chase backs buddy Bill Clinton at DNC

While watching the Democratic National Convention last night — because, let’s face it, the Yankees are done — I spotted Bedford resident Chevy Chase in the stands. As seen in this photo, he was there cheering on Chappaqua resident Bill Clinton and waving the American flag during his speech.

When Chase was holding an auction in September for his charity, the Center for Environmental Education Online, Clinton agreed to lend his name and time to the cause. At one point in the auction, a bid for lunch with Chase and Clinton reached $51,500. Y’know, tip money.
