Desperate or Dumb?

Out there on the campaign trail trying to scare up votes to close the Obama gap, Democrat presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton was seen in a bar slamming down shots of Crown Royal followed by a beer.

Now I don’t oppose anyone having a drink or two, but I have to draw the line at Ms. Clinton allowing herself to be recorded drinking in a bar while campaigning.

What kind of a message is she sending to the world? I suppose it was to make her appear more human, more like “one of the guys,” a “regular person.”

I wonder what young, suggestible kids think of this exhibition? Are they impressed? Does it make drinking seem okay to them?

I think she used extremely poor judgment; I think she is desperate; and did something stupid to try to get votes.
