Hillary's Howard Dean Moment!?!?

[Yes, I'm late with this post, but hey, the Day Job actually wants me working for a change. Selfish *******'s!]

Could we be watching the public meltdown of a once proud frontrunner right before our very eyes? After peeping Hilary Clinton's composure (or lack thereof) the past few days in the wake of Iowa, I'm a little concerned about the safety of our great nation should Obama's lovechild become public she somehow end up in possession of The Number One Spot.

The warning signs were there last week. If you listened to her sour grapes concession speech last week in Iowa, you probably were bracing yourself for the inevitable public meltdown.

Yesterday, however, she darn near went all the way there.

"You're crying? Are you're crying? There's no crying! There's no crying in politricks!!!"

If this woman loses tonight in New Hampshire, somebody better guard the medicine cabinet.

Of course, as many pundits have noted, this whole waterworks display could be little more than a calculated ploy for attention and sympathy. Some have labeled this "passion". Me? Not so much.

Could a man get away with publicly crying over anything other than a sporting event with his reputation in tact? Not sayin' there's a double standard, but please believe if this was Mitt Ronmey ballin' on nationwide TV, his Mormon ass would be gettin' straight clowned right now.

Question: Does this (supposed) lack of composure in the midst of relatively low-pressure circumstances (these are just primaries) perhaps foreshadow her (in)ability to handle adversity should she actually be elected President?

I can't say for sure, but I'm sure as heck making the requisite mental note. I'm just sayin'.
