Why Hillary Cried

The WTF quote of the day comes from Hillary Clinton, explaining her famous New Hampshire tears:

I spend my time out on the campaign trail — it’s usually about what I can do for somebody else. I’m very ‘other’ directed — I don’t like talking about myself. … For me, it’s always about, ‘What can I do for you? How can I help you?’ And I was very touched when that woman said, ‘How are you doing? How do you get up in the morning?’

Right. And beauty queens want to be like Mother Teresa.

Meanwhile, here’s Don Boudreaux’s take:

Sen. Clinton cried over her own lust for power.  Her emotion was sparked by her self-admiration.  She got all choked up when she suggested how indispensable she is to America and when she reflected upon – perhaps a better phrase is “wallowed in” – her own magnanimity at being willing to endure the awful hardship of being President of the United States.
