    In that case, because the media cycle was just the thing to piss off the very women Hillary wanted to get to the polls. Voter anger plus ground operation equal big turnout.

    I know where this leads, to the now popular conspiracy theory that Hillary staged the not really tears. In a sense I think this is actually true, but not in the standard bullshit way offered.

    Whatever her ground operation, Hillary knew her back was to the wall, and she was pushing herself to her own limits. Doing that, she was bound to reveal herself in some way - if it hadn't been her debate performance, or The Cry, it would have been something else.

    Politics is among other things a performance art, like athletics or acting, and the performance is part of the message. (Jeez, look at Obama or Edwards!)
