Mike Lawn worked for seven presidents and met nine. That number could be up to 10 by November if Hillary Clinton wins the White House. He just happens to be selling her car, which sits in his driveway adorned with an Arkansas license plate and a 1990 "Clinton for Governor" sticker on the back windshield.
Lawn, who lives in Gettysburg, worked at the White House for 29 years, from the Carter administration through the most recent Bush. He was head gardener through the National Parks Service in 2000, when the Clintons offered up the first ladys 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass in a bidding process. As the car has sat in his garage for 16 years rarely used, Lawn decided now, given the timing of Clintons campaign, would be the best time to say goodbye to the presidential candidates car.
Im ready to have it go down the road, Lawns wife, Joyce, said. Its time. Weve had it too long.
When he purchased the car from the Clintons, he intended to give it to his daughter when she turned 16 and needed to drive to school. He took her to see it after cementing the deal with Clinton, only to find she was not impressed.
She said it looked like an old ladys car, Lawn said. She didnt know why it had cranks in the windows.

Meet Felix! This is the little guy I found in the grocery store parking lot, can't imagine what would have happened to him if I hadn't stopped at that store that night, or hadn't spotted him on the way to my car. They were doing construction at that particular store and a couple of the construction guys had attempted to catch him, but got bitten for their trouble. The vet thought he was only about seven weeks, 2.6 lbs., had no idea what he even looked like in the dark, but I think I'm the lucky one, since, at a year old, he really is beautiful, IMO, and rarely bites these days, LOL, and getting better all the time!
Felix, then and now:
New York's reputation as a true-blue state was reflected in the findings of a new Quinnipiac University poll that shows Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders beating all three of the remaining Republican contenders in hypothetical general election match-ups.
And both beat GOP front-runner Donald Trump by more than 20 percent, according to the poll.
The survey of state voters also shows Clinton ahead of Sanders 54-42 percent among likely Democratic primary voters, while Donald Trump leads among likely Republican primary voters with 56 percent, followed by U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas at 20 percent and Ohio Gov. John Kasich with 19 percent.
"The home-court advantage helps both party's front-runners," said Quinnipiac spokesman Maurice Carroll.
Clinton represented New York in the U.S. Senate from 2001-2009, while Sanders' roots in Brooklyn are apparent to anyone who has heard him speak. Trump, of course, is a Queens native who has built his corporate brand in Manhattan's high-powered real estate industry.
