Cry Me A River!

So I guess one way to win a primary is to cry. It seemed to have worked for Hillary. I guess she fooled the voters of New Hampshire into believing she might just be human after all. And its hard running for president. Here's some advice: if it is making you cry, then don't do it. I think this advice applies to Mitt Romney as well. If you are going to be a cry baby, I don't want you to be my president. If you think running for president is hard, actually being one will blow your mind. Unless you are W and you take naps everyday no matter what turmoil is afflicting this nation. For him, being president hasn't been so hard. See how well that has turned out for everyone? But if crying helps you in the polls, I guess Oprah better start crying in every state to get Obama's campaign back in the winning column (despite the fact that he leads in the number of delegates). It seems that since he has lost one primary, the "experts" think he should throw in the towel or have a good cry. Apparently, losing a primary by 7,481 votes and getting the same number of delegates makes Obama a big fat loser and Hillary the next nominee. Neither Obama nor his wife seem like good candidates to do the crying thing. They should leave the tears to Oprah because you can be Oprah and still cry without any ridicule. Cry, Oprah! Cry!

Also, after Hillary's speech I am even more convinced that she should not be president. When Edwards and Obama gave their concession speeches, they talked about how the people can change the world. Obama made me think I can make a difference in the world and I was inspired by him. Edwards made me believe that he really cares and wants to do good things. When Hillary gave her speech, I was disgusted. She stole the good points of their speeches and somehow made it all about her. Word theft does not inspire me. Neither does her ego. The thought of her getting the nomination makes me want to cry.

As a Canadian who knows nada about this US issue, I love your updates and opinions. They're totally going to be my opinions too, if conversations with friends go in that direction. I'll look so damn smart. Thanks!

If I recall well, Bill Clinton lost both Iowa and New Hampshire and look what happened to him...

Those 2 caususes are only good for providing material for the political pundits...it means absolutely nothing in the long run.

Clinton didn't actually cry, yeah? She kinda choked up some. Just enough to make you roll your eyes.

I don't think Hill actually dropped a tear. Glen Close didn't cry as VP in "Air Force One" But I will have to ask why it is ok for a woman to cry (uless they are running for Presient) and not a man? Oh yeah, men aren't supposed to cry. And women- well remember the Iron Lady, Margaret Thatcher? Oh well, my choice for Presidnt is none of the above, below, or otherwise seen. They all remind me of Charles During in "The Best Little Whorehouse" as he sang "Oh I love to do a little sidestep"

i can always trust you to tell it like it is. Remember back in 1995 when we dressed up for Halloween as "Clinton Busters" and got wasted at that kegger? ah good times...

huckdoll: that is the best plan of action because I AM ALWAY RIGHT!

maria: they need something to talk about because obviously there is nothing else going on the the entire world...

mad: that inspires more than eye rolling. i threw a shoe at the tv at that.

jill: thanks for getting that song stuck in my head. personally, I don't think the crying is as bad as the fact that it seemed so insincere.

wed: you must have been REALLY wasted because I'm pretty sure we were "Claytie Busters." In the end, a good time had by all. I also recall the fat guys dressed up as sugar plum fairies...

except when you get to wear really expensive, custom made boots. I remember that too because that does not happen to me everyday. Those were some really nice boots.
