Clinton had to contend with falling flag poles at a press conference Monday.
WASHINGTON (CNN) - She has come under increased heat recently from her Democratic presidential rivals, but on Sunday Sen. Hillary Clinton was on the receiving end of a different kind of attack - falling flag poles.
The Democratic presidential frontrunner was wrapping up a press conference in Waterloo, Iowa when several large flag poles directly behind her started to fall down, as shown on a video posted by ABC News.
Aides came rushing to the stage as Clinton herself tried to handle the falling flags crashing around her.
"I think the bases are not weighted enough," the New York senator can be heard saying on video captured by ABC.
After a couple minutes, the flags were successfully stabilized.
This is a sign of what will happen to this country if she is elected. When she tries to court people of faith, I hope no one gets hurt when the church roof falls!!
this is as newsworthy as the current headline article on cnn.com...a rappers mother dies. Pathetic.
CLINTON RESCUES FLAGS LIKE SHE IS GOING TO RESCUE AMERICA!!
This is news? My god, I think a few journalist need to ask their college for their money back. You're losing it...CNN
Just what Hillary Clinton needs in her life 'a little more drama'. This is not really a news story but since Hillary is the soon-to-be next President of the USA I guess her every move and nuance is a big news story. As always Hillary handle the situation with affable poise..
If this had happened to Obama, people who are supporting Clinton would have made snide, unnecessary comments, like "it's not just the flags that are falling down- ha ha ha."
Well, I guess we need to look at the positive side. At least it wasn't a white flag. Jeez, when you're on a roll, you're on a roll.
Those darn flag poles...don't they know that if you don't stand for anything you you'll fall down. Maybe Mark Penn didn't do a good enough job with these polls, er, poles. More evidence that the weight of Hillary's base is eroding...and I'm not talking about her cankles.
This is a bad sign for Hillary. Cut your losses and bow out before the wind of change takes it natural. You can not foul the people all the time.
The symbolism here is just as profound as the day when President Ronald Reagan received a gift of a stallion on the white house lawn. Said stallion made his equine excitement very evident. The President chuckled about the reproductive potential while the First Lady blushed and covered her mouth.
Why is this even being posted?
New campaign chant...Hillary? Oh Wait! (08)
If this would have been Obama, he would be un-American and a terrorist. Kind of like the not wearing a lapel pin, and a picture of him without his hand over his heart.
Besides the sudden foreshadowing of events to come for Hillary, this is news because...........????
What i find amusing, is all the people that write in here, "oh this is not news, thanks CNN" blah blah blah. Why are u reading it then u idiots!! if u dont care about it so much why take the time to even read it, my goodness. But i think i agree with the concensus that this is an omen of what will happen if that woman gets elected.
Did Hillary sponsored the amendment about American flag in Senate? Even Flags can't tolerate her.
this makes me giggle like a schoolgirl
Only the idiotic Republican right can read symbolism in this. Kind of reminds me of Bush tugging on a locked door..locked down and can't get out...
This is so silly!!! Someone opens the curtains and knocks over the flags. They all rush to catch them before they hit the ground. What's the big deal?
This would have been just as much of a non issue if it had happened to any other candidate. How is this news?
DID ANYONE BLAME BUSH YET? DANG -LMAO
Thanks so much for posting this important piece of information, I'm sure our voters are so much more educated now!!!
It's a sign from God.
Disclaimer: note, not the God from any major religion. Jerks, how you like me now!
And you are all idiots! yes, sure, it was God's sign answering your prayers.
Just look at the image: She helped herself to handle the falling flags.
Lighten up, people.
This could have happened to ANY of the candidates, and it still would be funny.
In more relevant news, Hillary Clinton is not hurting at all in the latest poll of Florida out yesterday. SHe dominates the primary, and does slightly better than Edwards and Obama in the general election. Link
