Hillary Fights Back Tears

Shaken by her loss in the Iowa caucuses and her sinking numbers in the New Hampshire polls, Hillary Clinton was close to tears at a campaign stop on Monday.

Clinton was meeting with undecided voters at a coffee shop in Portsmouth, N.H., when a member of the crowd asked her how she gets up every morning and deals with the problems of running for president, CBS News reported.

“It’s not easy,” she replied. “And I couldn’t do it if I didn’t passionately believe it was the right thing to do.

“This is very personal for me. It’s not just political. It’s not just public.”

Then Hillary’s voice began to crack and she held back tears as she said: “I know what’s happening. And we have to reverse it,” according to CBS.

“Some people think elections are a game and they think it’s who’s up and who’s down. It’s about our country…

“So as tired as I am, and I am, and as difficult as it is to keep up what I try to do on the road, like exercise, try to eat right — it’s tough when the easiest food is pizza — I just believe so strongly in who we are as a nation. So I’m going to do everything I can to make my case.”
