gasp shock aww

You know its headline news now that Hilary Clinton became emotional today at a campaign stop with a bunch of women while answering the question “How do you do it?”  No doubt this will be held against her, in fact, it already has been.  When John Edwards was asked for his response to her emotional response, he said that running for president and hitting the campaign trail takes strength and resolve.  He continued saying that holding the presidency would take even more of that strength, implying that maybe Clinton, that maybe a woman, does not possess such leadership and perseverance to get the job done.

 I find it refreshing to see a candidate expressing actual emotions.  To run for president should be an emotional, enduring experience. To know that if you win, you will be in control of one of the biggest and most powerful countries in the world and have millions upon millions of people looking up to you has got to stir you up. If not, You’re not worthy for the job.

I just hope Hillary showing that she is actually human doesn’t hurt her too much.
