People remember when politicians cry — it’s real, it’s emotional. Several people including Greg Valliere, Chief Political Analyst at Potomac Research Group recalled Ed Muskie in 1972 crying in the snow in New Hampshire, then losing the Democratic primary for President of the United States. Greg says he was upset because a columnist criticized his wife.
“G.W. Bush would cry at a K mart opening, he was always crying.” added Greg. And “when Hillary cried during the primaries (also in NH), she was ripped — people said she was faking it. Definitely a double standard.”
