    The title says it all; for more information, I’d like to direct you to the original article.

Of particular interest (at least to me) is this comment by Ms Young, the freelance photographer who caused the incident.

So Hillary’s sad about falling behind – big deal.

January 8, 2008

    The title might sound a bit rough, but seriously, what does it matter that Hillary shed some tears when asked a question by a voter in New Hampshire? (Unless you’re living under a rock, you should know that New Hampshire has its primaries today – here’s a page that updates at intervals). Does her crying in front of a voter provide any information about her political policies? No. Does it give any reason that we should vote for her? No. Heck, it doesn’t even attack her opponents, (something that Hillary is not averse to doing when behind in polls). Therefore, whether her tears were sincere or not, the only purpose they served was to attempt to emotionally influence voters – a pretty hard task when you consider the public view of her as a cold and hard person – JT’s implication that Clinton is a robot created in the 1960s pretty much hits the spot.

If she wants to pull ahead in the polls, maybe she should stop resorting to underhanded tactics; I don’t care if those tears were sincere, a president should have enough control to hold back tears in public. Instead, focusing on what she’s doing wrong would be a good step – although frankly, I’m in full support of her blundering away and handing the nomination to Obama or Edwards.
