It was "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" in North Texas Monday, and we don't mean Bill S. Preston, Esq. and Ted 'Theodore' Logan.
With just hours to go before Super Tuesday voting gets started in the Lone Star State, Cruz was the final major candidate to show up in DFW, completing a one week cycle of Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Ben Carson, Bernie Sanders and Bill Clinton, then Bill again as President Clinton arrived to stump for his wife.
For Cruz, it was a time to meet up with some old pals at Gilley's -- current and former Governors Greg Abbott and Rick Perry.
"There is a thread that unifies all these individuals standing up on this stage," Cruz said about himself, Abbott and Perry, "which is a love for freedom and a willingness to do whatever it takes to fight for the freedom and the future of this country."
Most of that fighting recently has been with Republican front-runner Donald Trump.
"It's easy to talk about making America great again. You can even print that on a baseball cap," Cruz said. "But the critical question is, do you understand the principals and values that made America great in the first place?"
Speaking of Trump and his hats, one of them made an appearance at Clinton's rally on the head of Hillary supporter Eric Byrd.
“The reason I wore this hat is because I knew it would be controversial," Byrd said. "I think it’s important for us to get out here and vote so that we have a voice."
Bill Clinton found his way to Tarrant County College in Fort Worth, his second trip to DFW in a week, and he's definitely noticed the guys on the red side doing some playground style shin kicking. He pointed it out in his address Monday and used the constant bickering as an example of what we don't need right now in America.
"We cannot build America in the 21st century with dysfunctional politics based on dehumanizing our adversaries," Clinton said.
The common thread, of course, was get out and vote in Tuesday's primary, and like Abraham Lincoln said in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, "Be excellent to each other."
