(CNN) Democrat Hillary Clinton talked to CNN's John Roberts about tearing up on the campaign trail Monday, saying the incident proves she has emotions.
"Well you know, I actually have emotions I know there are some people who doubt that, but you know, I really am so touched by what I hear from people," said the New York senator. "It's usually about their problems.
It's usually a mother who throws arm around me and says thank you for the Children's Health Care insurance program, or a man who drove here all the way here from New York to say I'd saved jobs in New York. That's really moving to me. That's how I judge the job I'm doing."
"So when this woman, this really kind woman, said to me, 'Well, how are you doing?' it was so touching to me," she said. "I'm so other-oriented. You know I'm not good about talking about myself. I don't get up and think about how I'm going to present myself. I think about, 'What am I going to do today to actually make a difference in someone's life?'"
The comments are in reference to Clinton's visible display of emotion at a campaign event in Portsmouth Monday morning, following a undecided voter's question about how the New York senator is dealing with the rigors of a presidential campaign.
"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," Clinton said, her voice breaking a bit.

This is just getting pathetic now.
Please...for the love of all that’s holy... BARF ALERT!
There are robots and androids programmed to cry. That’s nothing new. Try again Hillary.
They forgot the rest of the quote.
“I actually have emotions. I just haven’t gotten the latest focus group poll yet to tell me which ones to have”.
With regard to Hillary, whenever she says “you know,” or “well, you know,” (and she says it a lot), what follows is BS.
Rush is right. She’s leaving this race in a straightjacket.
Hillary was First Lady for 8 years. It’s the touchy-feeliest job EVER in all of history. The deluded shrew spent the time insulting mothers who bake cookies, and insulting the women her husband raped, abused, and used. What goes around comes around. She now has to try to convince us she is not a machine . . .
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
It's usually a mother who throws arm around me and says thank you for the Children's Health Care insurance program, or a man who drove here all the way here from New York to say I'd saved jobs in New York.
Yes, thank you your highness for more socialism.
Sounds even MORE like a setup now....She’s actually using it to promote her humanness. The problem is she was crying for herself....
Being emotional on behalf others is laudable.
Being emotional because you feel sorry for yourself is just plain ugly.
“I don’t get up and think about how I’m going to present myself. I think about, ‘What am I going to do today to actually make a difference in someone’s life?’””
Walter Mitty has nothing on Hillary.
Hillary is emotional only because she sees her campaign going down in flames. She cares only for herself.
and Bubba will be right next to her. I think he’s really teetering on the brink of total meltdown.
Interesting that when she was winning and a shoe in those things she heard from people didn't bring tears to her eyes.
We must have missed Hillary’s “emotions” for Juanita Broderick, Kathleen Willey, etc. This is pathetic.
