Watch a body language expert examine Clinton's speech.
(CNN) - What did Hillary Clinton's body language give away at the Democratic National Convention?
Dan Hill, a body language expert and author of "Face Time," told CNN that even while the words Clinton delivered offered an unequivocal endorsement of Barack Obama, her body language was much less affirmative.
"When she spoke about Obama, she really did not emote very much," Hill said. "The only thing she showed was a very weak smile, the cheeks didn't tend to lift very much, it was really almost what I would call a 'crocodile smile' where even the slight corners of the lips sometimes raise into a little bit of a smirk."
"I don't think that helped move the 30 percent of her supporters who say they won't vote for Obama," Hill added. "What she did do was appeal to voters at large, that she did more emotionally."
A non-issue. I think she did marvelously in what had to have been difficult circumstances. She earned a lot of respect from me.
I'm very disappointed in CNN, this is ridiculous! a body language expert? what's next? A psychic? Stop fueling the fire and talk about what matters! shame shame shame shame on you CNN!
Media needs to back off!
can't wait till president mccain wins in november. hillary 2012! nobama!
I totally agree with "Disgusted republican" who stated above "Let's talk about the many serious issues that are facing our country today, and how McCain and Obama views differ."
When are we going to just focus on the facts and what the candidates plan for our future! Then decide which future we want?
4-8 more Republican years?
CNN is just dying to be totally eclipsed by MSNBC as more of us move there for a non-Obama bashing time. McCain has Fox and Obama has MSNBC and CNN is trying like hell to make itself more and more irrelevant. If it wasn’t for Anderson Cooper I’d probably never tune in and now it looks like I need to divorce Anderson and leave CNN alone.
I truely believe that america got it wrong.
This woman is amazing,,,
She should have bee the nominee for Pres or VP
She was terrific ...
God Bless America
Bologna!!!!!! You can get a so-called expert to say whatever you want. She did a wonderful job and I have renewed respect for her. Yes it was difficult but she did what was best for this country and the Democratic Party. Get over yourself....expert my foot. I hope you dissect the RNC the way you do the DNC.
I agree completely. Her ulterior motives were signaled by weak body language in support of Obama.
But it does not matter. People who want to vote for Obama will. For those on the line, I say, set aside concerns about race and experience and listen to how he measures issues–he is thoughtful, intelligent, chooses good advisors, and listens to good advice. He also does not accept bad advice. He will make a good president. And his wife will be a wonderful spouse! Please don't trust McCain. He is falling in line with the NeoConservative decision makers of his party and his policies are now evidently those of the Bush administration. McCain won't be exactly like Bush, but he is not going to be very much better, because he can't be–the Republican power players in the background won't let him.
What a pile of junk that is........of course look who it's coming from ,CNN.
You people need to grow up or go find a real job somewhere.
Hey CNN,....I got an idea. Why don't you just hire Sylvia Browne too and get her to tell us what's going to happen to Obama and McCain in the future. Perhaps you might might consider bringing Jerry Springer on to do some moderating too. Might as well make the full transition to junk TV.
G ET -M E-- O U T--O F-H E R E ! ! !
Will you and your other talking heads please shut up and let the voters make up their own minds. I do not need you to tell me what was said or how it was said.
I used to support McCain, but I am sick and tired of his negative ads. Like Hillary Clinton wants to be in them!!! I'm now supporting Obama, like HIllary said, with pride.
As a Canadian watching Hillary's late speech (yawn), I'd say Michelle Obama's facial expression spoke volumes in itself!!
So what? I don't care if she doesn't believe everything she said about him. What matters is that she did what she had to do to ensure that her party is stronger this November.
If we had these "lie detector" guys watch politicians all the time, they'd probably find a pretty high rate of people not saying what they think. Like it or not, doing that is an important part of the political profession, even for non-sleazy officials.
But at least talking to this guy allows lazy media outlets and out-for-blood citizens to more easily play "gotcha" - after all, the most important thing is trying to interest people with the lowest attention spans, in order to make money.
why wasn't michelle smiling during Hillary's speech?????
What happened to you people at CNN ?
Aren"t we overdoing this just a bit... The media has way too much time to fill...or TO KILL. The major message from the media covering the DNC is the party split and Hilary making it right.
This is not what I SEE ;but what I HEAR from the best political team.
Let's move on. Media look at the red meat.
PATHETIC! PATHETIC! PATHETIC! PATHETIC! PATHETIC! PATHETIC!
Is this the BEST you got??? Body Language analysis??
I heard all the media is going on about basically nothing. Creating news!!
Andrea Mitchelle trying to insist Bill Clinton just isnt on board with Obama, though he already has said he is!!
They have nothing to work with that is negative, so they create it.
Just like s-e-x cells, so does negative media commentating!
No wonder C-Span has become THE station to be in our homes. You guys are soooo desperate for a story. Body language???? Good Lord, Cnn is NOT the best political ANYTHING!
<<<Telling the expert he is number one in my book...with one finger...can you guess it?
Are you serious? Can this woman do ANYTHING to get yor approval? Why must the media pick her apart to this degree. This is why we are stuck with Dud-bama.
Maybe she just had a botox injection. Can analysis pickup on that?
This is what 21st century journalism has come to?
What a absolute disgrace and insult to your readers. Please, just report the facts as clearly and concisely as possible and allow us to provide our own analysis.
