35. I just love how some people here are trashing a waitress (not)
Ever think that maybe the encounter prompted her to read more than perhaps she would have otherwise done at this stage in the election cycle? After all, we're a year away from the election, and as anyone who has ever been a waitress knows, it's exhausting work that might not leave a person - especially one working at the low-wage end of the scale who probably has other stresses in her life - a lot of time to ponder the candidates a year away. And if she did read about Hillary, are there really those here who think that no one of integrity would come to the conclusion that s/he can't vote for Hillary? We see the same here everyday, and many of us hear it off-board every day from people we regard and respect.

As for publicity mongering, did she take herself down to some news station and pound on the door demanding to publicize her opinion, or did some news hound ask her? And if some reporter asks her, why should she not state her opinion - whatever it is?

And no, I didn't read the link, which I would normally do before posting. I am too appalled that a significant number here are so ready to blast away at a waitress who by happenstance encountered Hillary in her work and then had the audacity to form and express an opinion. I guess only highly-paid pundits have that right!
