[Ads-l] I say Rally; you say Rawly

This morning the news announcer on a local Boston radio station said Clinton was to have a "rally in Rally".   (The "a' in the latter might have been less broad than in the former.)  Driving home this afternoon, a different announcer on the same station said Clinton was having a "rally in Rawly".

I'll leave it to the Rebels on this list to sort this out.
