The whole event wasn’t quite what Hillary needed. She was three quarters of an hour late and when she arrived both the microphone and the megaphone she was given didn’t work. The Clinton advance work, which had involved leading the crowd of canvassers in a string of chants which barely scanned, fell apart as the bus pulled into the lot. One has to give credit to Hillary for keeping her cool as all this went wrong around her. As she showed last night, she is not going to have a meltdown moment, however, tough things get. Chelsea Clinton also deserves praise for stepping up to the plate while the Clinton campaign tried to address its sound issues by clowning for the photographers. Indeed, having Chelsea but not Bill by her side this morning humanised Hillary without overshadowing her.
