The stress finally gets to Hillary.

After suffering a crippling third-place finish in Iowa, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton choked up with tears when a New Hampshire voter asked her Monday “how she does it.”

“I have so many opportunities in this country, I just don’t want to see us fall backwards,” she said with her voice breaking and appearing to hold back tears.

“This is very personal for me,” Clinton told a group of nearly 15 women at the Caf Espresso in Portsmouth. “It’s not just political, it’s not just public. I see what’s happening and we have to reverse it. And some people think elections are a game, who is up and whose down, but it’s about our futures and it’s really about all of us together.”
