Crying in politics — Dick Morris’ take

Dick Morris, former Clinton adviser and current arch-enemy of Hillary Clinton, told Sean Hannity tonight that he thinks Hillary’s emotional display of today was genuine. Morris says that he saw basically the same thing from Hillary in private after the crushing defeat the Democrats suffered in 1994.
Fox News also had Frank Luntz play the tape of Hillary’s emotional moment to a focus group of Democrats. They reacted very well to Hillary until she got the line about “some of us have experience and some of us don’t.” At that point, the “approval” line started to plummet.
I’d probably cry too if I were running behind my main political opponent and lost points every time I criticized him, no matter how validly.
JOHN adds, somewhat cynically: I’d cry if I realized I’d stayed married to Bill Clinton for all these years and still wouldn’t get to be President. Meanwhile, by an amazing coincidence, a couple of apparent troglodytes showed up at a Clinton rally tonight:

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton was about to deliver a line that has become a centerpiece of her campaign since her loss in Iowa.
