Hillary again


Sorry, another entry on this woman. I am just merely interested. Another analysis on the impact of her.. erm.. ‘crying’ tactic.

Read these excerpts from Hill’s Angels: how angry women of New Hampshire saved Clinton:

It was not just pity, though a number of women admitted their eyes misted up at the sight of Clinton close to tears. It was not just annoyance at commentators who called Clinton “shrill”, or anger at the hecklers who yelled: “Iron my shirt.” Women, even those who have disliked Clinton since she arrived on the national stage in 1992, felt a sense of obligation.

And another one:

But as a woman who used to work in the largely male field of engineering, she was angered by the atmospherics of the campaign. “I just couldn’t believe some of the things that were said and written,” she said.

Clinton was getting regularly trashed by the rightwing talk show hosts who dominate the airwaves in New Hampshire, said Arnie Arnesen, a Democratic activist who has her own talk show. That built up resentment among women.

I wonder how women voters in Malaysia behave. Will they react in the same behaviour if the same things occur? Or is it Malaysians just follow the rule ‘As long as I can eat daily and live comfortably, I don’t care who is going to be the next ruling party’.

p.s. How is my new template? I was already bored with the previous one, to be honest.
