Hillary Clinton Chokes up and People Freak...

Okay, hasn't happened yet, but tell me the media won't spin this into "Hillary's a weak woman." "Our president can't be so emotional!" "Is she on her period?"

Newsflash, future reporters, she probably doesn't get her period anymore.

Via Newsweek

At a New Hampshire campaign stop, Clinton was asked about being a woman in the world: "How do you do it?"

Clinton answered honestly (1st honest moment in the campaign! Woohoo!):

The media has already asked other democrats what they thought.

Edwards: "I think what we need in a commander-in-chief is strength and resolve, and presidential campaigns are tough business, but being president of the United States is also tough business,"

Obama: "I didn't see what happened," he said, but added, "I know this process is a grind. So that's not something I care to comment on."

I can see why Edwards said this, but I like Obama's answer better. Edwards' answer is just a sign of what's to come. STRONG=MAN.

I really like Clinton's answer. First of all, over all it seemed honest and genuine - two things I feel she's lacked over the past couple of months. Secondly, while being honest she STILL managed to make her main point right now, which is that Obama may be inspiring and may want to bring change, but can he do it as soon as he starts work. Personally, I believe he can, but I'm still impressed that Clinton is such a good politician.

Now, the cynic in me sees that and says that she played this moment just like any other, but I don't really think so this time. I think she genuinely responded and, having made her main point hundreds of times in the last couple of days, it rolled off of her tongue that easily.

I'm ashamed for ourselves if our media believe this should be spun as weakness - it was one of her strongest moments yet.
