PORTSMOUTH–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.”
