Hillary: ''I Just Don't Want To See Us Fall Backwards''

What you mean "Us," Hillary. "Us" is not double-digits behind Obama in New Hampshire, keemo sabe. From ABCNews:

''How voters interpret Sen. Hillary Clinton's composure -- emotional, cold or just plain tough -- could be a deciding factor in her campaign for the presidency, political analysts told

''Earlier today at a campaign event in New Hampshire, Clinton's voice broke and her eyes welled up with tears as she spoke to 16 undecided voters about her passion for the election as well as for the country.

''The New York senator was taking questions from a primarily female group at Cafe Expresso in Portsmouth, when she choked up responding to one woman's question about how she stays 'upbeat and so wonderful'?

'''It's not easy, and I couldn't do it if I didn't passionately believe it was the right thing to do,' said Clinton, getting visibly emotional. 'You know, I have so many opportunities from this country I just don't want to see us fall backwards.'''

We can, to be sure, appreciate the sentiments. But something tells us Camille Paglia would not approve.
