Clinton Gets Emotional, Then Hits Obama Again

hillaryclintonportsmouth Clinton Gets Emotional, Then Hits Obama AgainPORTSMOUTH–Responding to a question from a voter asking how she manages to get up and run and look so good everyday, Hillary Clinton teared up.

“Luckily, I do have help,” she said.

“If you look at some of the Web sites and listen to some of the commentators, they always find me on the day that I didn’t. It’s not easy–it’s not easy. I couldn’t do it if I didn’t passionately believe it was the right thing to do.”

There was a long pause.

“This is very personal for me–it’s not just political,” she said choking up. “It’s–not just–I see what’s happening.”

UPDATE: UPDATE: More from her response to the same question: “Some people think elections are a game. It’s about who’s up, who’s down. It’s about our country’s future. It’s about our kids’ future. It’s really about all of us together, and some of us put ourselves out there and do this against some pretty difficult odds.

“And we do it, each on of us, because we care about our country. Some of us are right and some of us are wrong. Some of us are ready and some of us are not. Some of us know what we would do on Day 1 and some of us haven’t really thought that through.”

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
