Emotional Clinton Against Islamic Terrorists?

To cry or not to cry? That is the question.

Shedding a tear grieving over the loss of innocent Americans is one thing. Crying because you got emotional about a question is another. Campaigns are tough. Being President of the United States is even tougher. Don't think that crying because "it's tough" when you're the commander-in-chief will elicit paeans of empathy from Islamic terrorists. It also won't cause the Senate to reconsider a bill that you want to pass. It won't cause lobbyists to go soft on you. It won't make the Secret Service have to work less to protect you. Being President is tough, the toughest job in the world.

If Senator Clinton isn't ready to handle the difficulty of a campaign, then she certainly is not ready to handle the exponentially more difficult task of leading the country.
