The Real Hillary Emerges?

6

People don’t want to vote for a policy wonk. They want to vote for a caring mother.

From Politico:

“It’s not easy, it’s not easy, and I couldn’t do it if I just didn’t passionately believe it was the right thing to do,” she said. […] “I have so many opportunities for this country. I don’t want to see us all fall back,” she said, her voice breaking in the last phrase.

“This is very personal for me,” she said to supportive applause from the small gathering, at which she’d been discussing policy around a table for an hour. “It’s not just political, it’s not just public — I see what’s happening. We have to reverse it.” […]

“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 are going to do on day one, and some of us haven’t thought that through enough,” she said.

“When we look at the array of problems that we have, and the potential for it really spinning out of control — this is one of the most important elections America’s ever faced,” she concluded.

The result?

The questioner, Pernold, said she’d come to the event “smitten” by Obama but that she’s now torn. “Showing that emotion, I really find it refreshing,” she said.

A new strategy is born.

UPDATE:
Here’s the video. Original link here.

It feels heartfelt, but the effect of all of those flashes around here sort of minimized the emotional impact upon viewing it.

Still, I think this could work for her.

UPDATE 2:
Here’s her response to all this coverage…

Nobody is debating your passion Hillary. But a lot of people haven’t seen this side of you yet.

Edwards took the opportunity to get jab at her. Bad move John.

Okay, that’s enough for this story. Moving on..
