Weepy

ABC News’ Kate Snow reports on Sen. Hillary Clinton’s emotion moment earlier today, when her eyes fill with tears.

Watch the video HERE.

Those in the room seemed to see her response as warm and emotional (though one Republican male friend noted that she was able to pivot and turn the moment into an implicit slam on how she’s experienced, unlike certain Obamas.)

Sen. John Edwards seemed to pounce on the moment as evidence of weakness, as reported by ABC News’ Raelyn Johnson and David Muir

"I think what we need in a commander-in-chief is strength and resolve," Edwards said, "and presidential campaigns are tough business, but being president of the United States is also tough business."

Changing the subject, perhaps, from her watery eyes to his chilly heart.

What do you think?

When’s the last time you cried?
