Skip to comments.Questioner who brought Hillary to tears was contacted ahead of time by campaign. A setup?
Posted on 01/09/2008 7:55:44 AM PST by RecallMoran
Marianne Pernold was called by Clinton's campaign ahead of time to go to the coffee shop in Ft. Smith New Hampshire (older woman-democrat). She was invited by Terry Norelli of Hillary's campaign. Questioner thinks that Hillary was sincere because the question was personal. Marianne says that immediately after the crying, Hillary resumed the political face.
"Marianne Pernold tells 630 WMAL's Chris Core she truly believes that Senator Hillary Clinton's emotional response to her question at a meeting in New Hampshire was genuine. Pernold asked Clinton how she managed to keep going during the rough campaign, and Clinton's somewhat-teary response has been credited by some pundits for her victory in the Granite state Tuesday night. Pernold tells 630 WMAL she still voted for Barack Obama, becuase she had attended one of his rallies earlier in the week, and she claims Obama's stirring speech brought HER to tears!"
It worked in NH.
It will be part of her undoing, long term.
Most 10 year old girls practice this PHONY tearful display for daddy with good results.
That’s cute. Thanks for my first laugh of the day!
I wish I knew how to post pictures, just go back and look at the pictures of Hillary when she first became 1st lady or when she and Bill first met.
Her hair was brown, just as the daughters hair used to be brown.
Another POSED question by Herself, the Cold and Joyless?
Is this going to be the paradigm for the rest of Herself’s campaign?
Muriel Gallo-Chasanoff, a 19-year-old sophomore at Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa, said a staffer told her what to ask at a campaign event for Sen. Hillary Clinton. Afterwards, this young student concluded that giving anyone specific questions to ask is “dishonest,” and the whole incident has given her a negative outlook on politics.
The particular question was about energy and the environment, and was supposed to sound like something “plausible” that a college student would ask.
A pattern is definitely established.
Is the Pope Catholic?
Since she won, it really doesn’t matter, does it?
Great. Just what the WNBA needs. Bill hanging around courtside looking for fresh meat.
Grammy...Oscar...I knew it was some leftist award.
I got invited to 50 political events this season. Does that make me a plant?
This is BS conspiracy stuff. Hillary won because the independents voted for McCain. They believed the MSM that Obama was a shoe-in to win by double digits.
The independents always screw up the primaries here. Just take a look at the candidates that have won over the years. New Hampshire is not now, nor has it ever been a good indicator of what will happen in the rest of the primaries. It isn’t too bad as an indicator of the general election.
Henry Cabot Lodge won NH
Paul Tsongas won NH
Pat Buchanan won NH
Eugene McCarthy won NH on a write-in campaign
Estes Kefauver won NH
John McCain won NH (twice now)
They only do it because it works so well. :=)
It wasn’t the “tears” it was the media’s 24/7 RUNNING with the tears...
CNN ran it EVERY 30 minutes, ALL NIGHT LONG.
It was like they were running a 14 hour Hillarython.
The lib media needed a horse-race to drive ratings. They got it...
Ok - that was disgusting.
Good job Mr. Russert...Maybe even better than the cr** you pulled in Florida.
The problem is that most of us have our minds made up. 48 or 49% will never vote for her. There are dems who will vote for here even if she kills a dog on national TV. I hope the “undecideds” and independents are picky up on these regular reports of her phoniness.
No kidding - she looks like a walking sofa in that suit.
