Hillary Clinton's Golden Globe Performance

I'm sure by now you have seen the poorly executed ploy on the part of Hillary to drum up sympathy and support on the eve of the New Hampshire Primary. Based on her performance, she may be the only person present at this year's Golden Globe award show for best performance by an actress in a comedy or musical.

What we saw was an example of method acting as popularized by Lee Strasberg (Godfather part 2 as Hyman Roth). In method acting, the actor attempts to recreate the real emotions their character may feel. The character Hillary was trying to recreate was that of a regular woman just trying to get ahead, balancing career and family. Any regular woman would have a break down when it seems to be slipping away. Good try Hillary, but I'm afraid we have all watched too many movies than to be fooled by your performance.
