Clinton: Ho Hum And Worse

Clinton-YawnWith the Clintons, it’s hard to tell how much the darkening visual coverage is illustrative — given the poll numbers and perceived momentum — or plain mean.

This image accompanied today’s NYT article: In New Hampshire, Bill Clinton Finds Less Spark.  (Link.)

Bubba is photographed with Jen Bella, who penned a positive article about Hillary  in The Conway Daily Sun.  She and her daughter, Veronica, must have been pretty surprised this morning to see that headline married to a yawn and a brief downward glance.

Much more clear-cut, however, is this example, which has been bothering me for a couple of days.
