Hillbilly National Airport

In two weeks Little Rock National Airport officially becomes Bill & Hillary Clinton National Airport in the first such re-naming for a former president and first lady.   There's already a new nickname.
“Locals are calling it the Hillbilly Airport,” one insider tells Confidenti@l. “And project managers certainly don’t want an airport named after our President called Hillbilly. In the South. How does that look to the world?” Our insider explains that when you depart the airport, you are met with huge signs that invite the public to “come meet” Bill and Hillary, who will be at the ceremony held at the airport, along with state dignitaries who will show off the facility’s $67 million overhaul, which includes redesigned check-in and baggage screening areas. There are also plans to make “Hillbilly” Airport an international airport down the line. “Hillary and I are so honored to have Little Rock National Airport named in our honor,” President Clinton said recently.
