The moment was not widely reported, and few would argue it constituted reportable news, particularly on a news day being dominated by the lopsided wins of her Democratic opponent, Barack Obama, in Washington, Louisiana, and Nebraska.
The point here is not that we shouldn’t be moved by the stories of our military veterans. Many of us in the same situation would have reacted similarly.
No, the point here is, would you want to see the President of the United States reacting as Hillary did? Or would you want a more controlled response? Sympathetic, appreciative, maybe even misty-eyed, but still, under control. Aware that the nation, or the world, might be watching. Might be judging. Might be looking for weaknesses or exploitable vulnerabilities.
Quite simply, wouldn’t you expect your president to be presidential?
