Word of the Day: Hustings

Gather round dear followers, it is time once again for the word of the day. Today's word comes from Dictionary.com, hustings, which they defines as the following.

Hustings /HUHS-tingz/ noun:

1. The political campaign trail. 

2. (Before 1872) the temporary platform on which candidates for British Parliament stood when nominated and from which they addressed the electors.

3. Any place from which political campaign speeches are made.

4. Also called husting court. A local court in certain parts of Virginia. 

So go forth gentle readers and find a way to use this word in your conversing today.  And please leave us an example of how to use hustings in a sentence in the comments. Thank you.
