They carry a stack of photographs of their other son, Benjamin, who was killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School inwhen he was 6. David presses the photos of his dead son on Clinton with the urgency of a parent desperate to keep other parents from having to show politicians pictures of their dead 6-year-olds.
Leaning in toward Wheeler as if they are colleagues mapping out a strategy, Clinton speaks in a voice that is low and serious. Intensity is more important than numbers.
When Matty grabs the front of his diaper, Clinton laughs, suggesting that he either needs a change or is pretending to be a baseball player.
She is warm, present, engaged, but not sappy. For Clinton, the highest act of emotional respect is perhaps to find something to do, not just something to say.
The group pauses at the entrance of the gym, where 1, people are warmed up and screaming for Hillary. She clasps her hands in front of her and looks down at them for a few seconds.
She raises her hand and waves at the crowd, grinning. Often, it feels like we know too much about her. She has been around for so long — her story, encompassing political intrigue and personal drama, has been recounted so many times — that she can seem a fictional character.
To her critics, she is Lady Macbeth, to her adherents, Joan of Arc. As a young Hillary hater, I often compared her to Darth Vader — more machine than woman, her humanity ever more shrouded by Dark Side gadgetry.
These days, I think of her as General Leia: No longer a rebel princess, she has made a wry peace with her rakish mate and her controversial hair and is hard at work, mounting a campaign against the fascistic First Order. All the epic allusions contribute to the difficulty Clinton has long had in coming across as, simply, a human being.
She is uneasy with the press and ungainly on the stump. You could see her, briefly, letting out a bawdy laugh in response to a silly question in the 11th hour of the Benghazi hearings, and there she was, revealed as regular in her damned emails, where she made drinking plans with retiring Maryland senator and deranged emailer Barbara Mikulski.
Her inner circle claims to see her — to really see her, and really like her — every day. They say she is so different one-on-one, funny and warm and devastatingly smart. I spent several days with Hillary Clinton near the end of primary season — which, in campaign time, feels like a month, so much is packed into every hour — and I began to see why her campaign is so baffled by the disconnect.
Far from feeling like I was with an awkward campaigner, I watched her do the work of retail politics — the handshaking and small-talking and remembering of names and details of local sites and issues — like an Olympic athlete.
Far from seeing a remote or robotic figure, I observed a woman who had direct, thoughtful, often moving exchanges: But what the rest of America sees is very different.
Some of this is simply symptomatic of where we are in the election cycle, near the end of a bruising primary season, with Democratic tempers still hot even as the Republicans are falling in line behind their nominee. The ambitious woman who works hard has long been disparaged as insufficiently human.
And the Democratic-leaning voters least likely to view Clinton favorably, according to a recent Washington Post pollskew young, white, and male.
The dichotomy between her public and private presentation has a lot to do with the fact that she has built such a wall between the two.
Her pathological desire for privacy is at the root of the never-ending email saga, to name just one example. Especially when she might not be. There are a lot of reasons — internal, external, historical — for the way Clinton deals with the public, and the way we respond to her. But there is something about the candidate that is getting lost in translation.
To be near her is to feel like the campaign is in steady hands; to be at any distance is to fear for the fate of the republic.
