Weeping Hillary and the Progress of a Nation

Was it the stress? Was it the impending doom? Was it a product of all those acting lessons? Regardless of the primary reason, Hillary got teary-eyed about America and what America has given her.

This is something I would expect from Kucinich but not Hillary. I think Ultra K is in touch with his feelings and is secure enough to weep for the nation. Hillary is another matter. The Hillary Machine is a plotting, calculating apparatus and one just can't escape that this may have been an act. I can understand the beatdown she received in Iowa can produce this kind of reaction, but after years and years of seeing Hillary adjust her nuance, I just can't take her or her actions at face value. If the early precinct results from Dixville Notch, NH are any indication, Hillary may have a lot more crying ahead.
