Morty Would Like the Press to Make Up Their Mind, Already

Is Hilary Clinton a ball-breaking bitch, or a hysterical woman one bad PMS episode away from nuclear war?

Can Clinton's Emotions Get the Best of Her?

N.Y. Senator's Recent Displays of Emotion Have Political Analysts Buzzing


Jan. 7, 2008 —

How voters interpret Sen. Hillary Clinton's composure  emotional, cold or just plain tough  could be a deciding factor in her campaign for the presidency, political analysts told

Earlier today at a campaign event in New Hampshire, Clinton's voice broke and her eyes welled up with tears as she spoke to 16 undecided voters about her passion for the election as well as for the country.

The New York senator was taking questions from a primarily female group at Cafe Expresso in Portsmouth, when she choked up responding to one woman's question about how she stays "upbeat and so wonderful"?

"It's not easy, and I couldn't do it if I didn't passionately believe it was the right thing to do," said Clinton, getting visibly emotional. "You know, I have so many opportunities from this country I just don't want to see us fall backwards."

"You know, this is very personal for me. It's not just political, it's not just public. I see what's happening, and we have to reverse it," she added, with her voice breaking and eyes growing teary.


How voters weigh Clinton's composure may not differ between genders, according to Georgetown's Owens.

"Male voters are basically going to see a hysterical woman," said Owens. "Women are going to think that if Clinton is going to take on this responsible role and represent women in such a visible way she should do a better job of it and not expose the gender to this criticism."
