LITTLE ROCK (AP) _ It'll be a really tight squeeze if everyone accepts former President Bill Clinton's invitation.

Clinton is sending 125,000 invitations to the Nov. 18 opening of his library and museum in downtown Little Rock.

Skip Rutherford, the head of the foundation directing library operations, said Friday the invitations should go out in early August, but it's not expected that everyone who receives one will show up.

Still, ``It will be a tight fit,'' he said.

Little Rock has experience hosting such large events. Thousands of people turned out for Clinton's 1992 and 1996 election night parties.
