Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee in New Hampshire for Hillary

Texas Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee was at a polling place in Portsmouth, NH today to support Hillary Clinton:

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston, Texas also made a visit to Portsmouth Junior High School in support of her favorite candidate, Senator Hillary Clinton.“Hillary is a candidate of ideas. I’m excited about her candidacy because I’m excited about what she can do,” Jackson Lee said.

Barclay Jackson, a Portsmouth voter and Hillary supporter added:

“She has the guts, strength, and experience to lead us out of the mess we are in,” Jackson said. “She has again and again stood up for women’s rights to make personal decisions.”

On Hillary's expression of emotion yesterday: [More...]

As far as Jackson is concerned, Clinton’s show of emotion yesterday at Café Expresso only proved her strength. “Women are stronger than men and they know showing emotion makes them strong,” she said.

Another voter said:

Gary Epler of Portsmouth agreed with Clinton’s strength, and said that while Clinton’s moment happened to be caught on camera, her emotions just showed that she is human. He also added a reminder that all of the candidates have been non-stop, on the road, not eating or sleeping well and working 24 hours a day. “This is an incredibly grueling process,” Epler said of the NH primary and running for the presidency.

    If we face a terrorist attack, she (and NOT Rudy Guiliani, despite his claims) will be the best person to handle it.

    And I thought I had changed my party affiliation.
