The Crying Game

Madame, the Cattle Baroness, blubs again at a campaign appearance:

Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton had an emotional reunion Monday with a colleague from the early days of her legal career as a child advocate.

The moment came as she revisited her law school days while hosting a campaign event at the Yale Child Study Center where she first pursued her interest in child advocacy.

Penn Rhodeen, a New Haven public interest lawyer who worked with Clinton as a student, recalled her showing up on his doorstep wearing purple bellbottoms.

“It was so 1972,” he recalled, praising Clinton for her longtime interest in helping children.

“Here is the abiding truth we know — you have always been a champion for children. Welcome home, dear friend. We are so proud of you,” he said.

Clinton responded emotionally to Rhodeen’s praise, at one point wiping her eyes with her hand.

Just as at her first crying jag, what has set Madame off? Emotional reaction to artistic sublimity? The recognition of death-defying courage? The love of country?

Naah, Madame is sobbing about herself. As always with the Clintons, it’s all about them. Do we really want these people back? It would be like a second appendicitis attack.
