Clinton laughs it up with press


Hillary Clinton had fun with members of the press on her plane Sunday night, commenting on her hairstyles over the years, the Saturday Night Live skits depicting her and Obama, and the fact her aide Huma Abedin often draws more attention than she does. (Photo credit: AP)

    Great article. This is why the traditional media gets attacked for bias. The issue with Hillary is the lack of authenticity that continues to plague her campaign. Nothing she does is perceived as sincere. Every comment, event, outfit appears to be a well researched tactic. The reason she lacks authenticity with the public is because she can't ever stake out a position. You have to have identified at least one option you are willing to consider to save social security if you are going to be ready to lead on the first day. I can't decide on a baseball team. Yes, its a trivial question; however, her response spoke volumes. Why can't the pundits have that conversation?

    There's always press on her jet, same as with every other candidate. Try doing some research before trying to sound funny.

    This isn't news! Is CNN trying to up HRC's numbers on their politics site by running all these pointless stories about her? CNN has run more stories with Clinton tags than they have Obama tags and all the HRC folks can yell is that the media have made Obama. What a farce.

    Hillary is a real person unlike the Rock Star opponent she is facing.

    Hillary doesn't seem to be laughing all that much anymnore and Bill is sounding more and more like a hungover drunk. This campaign may send him into a ICU Hospital ward.

    I am all the way for Hillary, but I Obama will have to wait and achieve even close to what Clinton has in oder for me to vote for him. I am not one of those pathetic voters or media who are blinded and obsessed with his empty promises and eloquence because I know for the fact that world is not as simple and perfect and he thinks it is, and he can eliminate all the evils just because he says so. Media has made him bigger than he is or ever will be.

    He is gotten more attention than he deserves because he has basically not achieved anything as yet. Now his patriorism is being questioned because he won't wear american flag with his picture and won't put his hand over his heart while taking a pledge of alligiance. I simply question his candidacy, he should sit aside and do something for the country before dreaming of becoming commander-in-chief.

    Obama, you are not there yet, quit and let Hillary do what she deserves to do.
