Hillary Clinton is the political equivalent of a chameleon, capable of changing herself and her image at the drop of a hat to fit the environment in which she finds herself.
But the Hillary Clinton she showed the world in a new video that began circulating on the Internet Thursday afternoon is probably not one she wants too many to see. In fact, most political pundits who have seen it aren't entirely sure what to make of it.
One thing's for sure: It conjures up memories of a lot of bad moments in electoral politics from the past.
While not quite seething with rage, the Clinton depicted in the video is stern and almost shouting to the audience. If she was trying to energize the labor union members it was meant to address, she failed.
As one observer put it, "She looks like the angry old schoolmarm, wagging her finger at the naughty kid."
"I will fight back against so-called 'right-to-work,'" she said. "Right-to-work is wrong for workers and wrong for America. Now having said all this, why aren't I 50 points ahead, you might ask. Well, the choice for working families has never been clearer. I need your help to get Donald Trump's record out to everybody."
Herman Cain, a 2012 Republican presidential candidate who has had his own share of campaign facepalms, called it the "worst 58 seconds of politics ever." Those who remember the "Howard Dean Yell" after the 2004 Iowa Caucus or Michael Dukakis' photo shoot in a tank in 1988 may decide it's a tossup.
