Do Hillary's tears make her seem weak or human- in other words- have they hurt or helped her?

Common wisdom is that they helped her in New Hampshire, especially amongst women voters.

with women it may help, but with men it surely won’t

It did seem to help her in the short term, but it’s not a ploy that I think will work repeatedly without raising questions in peoples’ minds about whether she’s “strong” enough to be president. And—call me cynical—but I do think it was a ploy.

I’m one of the few people not calling it a ploy. I think she cried because she realised she might be out of it soon. I think she’s human. I thought so before that incident and after it. Imho, it doesn’t change a thing. Women are more likely to cry in general. I don’t think it shows a weakness, sometimes you just start crying, even if you’re strong enough to get through whatever you’re crying about. I hate people who keep using the gender card in all of this. I mean yes she is a woman, but she’s also a politician. Vote for the issues, not whether a candidate is black or white, male or female, baptist or mormon. Because those things do not matter. It’s the issues.

I’d like to see some evidence that she’s human.

I seriously doubt she is human. That was an oil leak from her robotic brain through her mechanical eyes.
