Hillary turned on the waterworks today. It'll be interesting to see how that one plays out.

By the way NBC Nightly News will have a behind the scenes segment and interview with Obama tonight.

Brian Williams + Barack Obama =

i found it sincere, and i felt for her.

i really did. i do think she works hard. i do think she cares. i do think she wants to make a difference. and i think she's married into an impossible situation for her, so close and yet so far.

but it's so hard to get behind the Tracy Flicks of the world.

Too true. I believe that she, and everyone else, is absolutely exhausted, and when you're exhausted it becomes harder to control your emotions like that.

I felt for her too, but by no means am I going to vote for her.

She's perfectly capable of being Commander In Chief. I don't know anything about her crying, haven't read about it. But there's nothing wrong with crying, and I don't trust people who don't cry. Men should cry some more too, and in public. I want a commander in chief who isn't afraid to cry.

usually when a canidate has an emotional breakdown on the campaign trail-it's the beginning of the end for that candidate.

Mitt Romney teared up twice recently in tv interviews, where's the big to do over that?


PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — Hillary Rodham Clinton's eyes welled up and her voice broke repeatedly Monday as she talked with voters in a restaurant about her campaign for the presidency. The former first lady was making a last-minute pitch for support as she spoke on the eve of the state's primary, with polls showing her trailing Democratic rival Barack Obama.

Asked by a sympathetic voter how she keeps going in the grueling campaign, she replied, "It's not easy. It's not easy."

"And I couldn't do it if I just didn't, you know, passionately believe it was the right thing to do," she said, her voice catching.

"You know, I've had so many opportunities from this country, I just don't want to see us fall backwards," she said, her voice trailing off. The voters crowded into the restaurant applauded encouragingly.

"So," she continued, then paused, seemingly to control her voice as her listeners applauded again. "You know, this is very personal for me. It's not just political. It's not just public. I see what's happening, and we have to reverse it. And some people think elections are a game. They think it's like who's up or who's down.

"It's about our country. It's about our kids' futures. It's really about all of us together. You know some of us put ourselves out there and do this against some pretty difficult odds. And we do it, each one of us, because we care about our country. But some of us are right and some of us are wrong. Some of us are ready and some of us are not."

She concluded, "And so when we look at the array of problems we have and the potential for it getting really spinning out of control, this is one of the most important elections America's ever faced. So as tired as I am and I am and as difficult as it is to try to kind of keep up with what I try to do on the road like occasionally exercise and try to eat right. It's tough when the easiest food is pizza . I just believe so strongly in who we are as a nation so I'm going to do everything I can to make my case and, you know, then the voters get to decide."

After she spoke several of the people in the Cafe Espresso audience crowded around Clinton and offered sympathetic support.

Typical diamond nonsense, I see.

Emotional breakdown? Not according to that description I posted. Your idol Mitt has been crying too, is that why his is over?
