“There is a much greater burden on women running for political office...there is still a huge double standard,” Clinton told a voter in a town hall at the New England College who asked about the perception that she is “drilled” and “rehearsed.”
"My friend said, ‘Boy that would really work for any woman running,’” Clinton retorted sarcastically.
In a moment of self-reflection, Clinton -— who is currently trailing Sanders by double-digits in New Hampshire -— then acknowledged that she can sometimes come across as “a little more restrained, a little more careful.”
“I am who I am,” she said. "I can't do some kind of personality transformation...I have to be true to myself."
