The New Hampshire Primaries are upon us … let the games begin. The first votes were cast last night in Dixville Notch, Hillary Clinton received no votes. Granted there are few voters in Dixville Notch; however, is this a sign of things to come today and tonight for Hillary Clinton?
People there favored Sen. John McCain in the Republican primary — he got four votes — and Sen. Barack Obama in the Democratic contest, who won seven votes. Obama and McCain also won in midnight voting in Hart’s Location, population 42. The two senators hope to see those results duplicated statewide by the time all the votes are cast. (CNN)
Hillary, there’s no crying in baseball … or politics either! Of course looking at Hillary’s poll numbers lately, its no wonder she is.
How bad are the poll numbers for Hillary Clinton in NH? She now feels the need to go after the sympathy vote. Today’s NH Primary just one day after Hillary Clinton’s so called “tearful” and emotional comments regarding campaigning. Spare us the calculated theatrics Hillary.
ABC News’ Kate Snow Reports: Campaigning in New Hampshire one day before the first-in-the-nation primary, Senator Hillary Clinton got emotional and had tears in her eyes as she spoke with voters about how hard it is to balance a busy campaign life and her passion for the country’s future. The Senator from New York was sitting at a big table in Cafe Espresso in Portsmouth, New Hampshire with 16 undecided voters, mostly women, warmly and calmly taking questions.
VIDEO of Hillary getting emotional. Give us a break Hillary; however, I guess that if all that one ever thought that they were entitled to cam crashing down upon then by a political novice who was more likable, I guess one would cry.
Asked by a sympathetic voter how she keeps going in the grueling campaign, she replied, “It’s not easy. It’s not easy.”
“And I couldn’t do it if I just didn’t, you know, passionately believe it was the right thing to do,” she said, her voice catching.
“You know, I’ve had so many opportunities from this country, I just don’t want to see us fall backwards,” she said, her voice trailing off. The voters crowded into the restaurant applauded encouragingly.
The road ahead for Hillary does not get any better. The most recent polls in South Carolina show her behind Obama by double digits, 42% – 30%.
UPDATE I: McCain wins in NH; Clinton leads Obama
