Did Hillary's "emotional moment" on Monday end up helping her? I have to say that I find that deeply unlikely, and yet.....it was
on virtually a continuous loop on every cable news channel in the country for the past 24 hours. And Hillary did
win the women's vote by a huge margin. And something
obviously changed at the very last minute. So I dunno. Maybe.
In any case, Hillary herself seems to think so. She opened her victory speech by saying, "I listened to you, and in the process I found my own voice," and surely that didn't refer to the wonkfests that she apparently conducted in most of her venues over the past few days. So maybe that moment really did make an outsized impression on both her and the voters.
