We've come to a point in our political analysis that anything the Clinton's do is subject to enormous scrutiny and parsing of Hillary's moves as somehow being calculating and done with an eye to garnering sympathy for her and making her seem more human.
Sorry, I think its probably true, too, particularly when you realize she only worked 3 months or so for the Children's defense folks and not all during the 70's as some allege and praise her for on the campaign trail.
FOR CRYIN' OUT LOUD!
HILLARY TURNS ON THE TEARS AGAIN
By GEOFF EARLE: New York Post
NEW HAVEN, Conn. - There she goes again.
After she got a warm introduction from an old friend, Clinton's eyes welled up and glistened under TV camera lights. She paused and gathered her composure.
"Whenever [Barack] Obama picks up steam, she seems to open up the waterworks," said one Democratic operative.
"You looked wonderful - and so 1972," he said.
"Well, I said I would not tear up. Already, we're not exactly on that path," Clinton said, evoking laughs from the crowd.
She also appeared on CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," where the talk-show host asked her if she had ordered hubby Bill to "ease up" on attacking Obama.
She acknowledged talking to her husband, but said, "It was more like, 'We have to get on the positive here.' "
"Sometimes the underdog pulls it out," Obama said. "You can't always believe the pundits and prognosticators."
