It's My Office And I'll Cry If I Want To...

You would cry too if it happened to you... What is Hillary - Leslie Gore?

Oh my goodness, could anything have been more staged? Has she really tugged on anyone's heartstrings with this ploy?

An emotional display by a woman aspiring to be leader of the free world? Not a pretty site in my opinion.

What the whole thing translated into for me was that this woman feels that she is entitled to the office of US President. She wants to be president so bad and ..well..it's just not working out. If indeed this is "personal" then it is apparent that she does not want to fail where her husband succeeded (getting elected).

And yet, Hillary has just played up the problem all women in business and positions of power face - if you are tough they call you a female dog, and if you are not, then you are not up to the tasks ahead emotionally. She was definitely looking for the female vote with this one - as well as some sort of sympathy vote. I don't think it was a good strategy to use the ploy that everyone, especially the men, are "picking on the girl".

When I have days like that, I just have some chocolate and take a nap. Sigh... sometimes it's just not easy being a woman.
