Have a good look at the table behind Senator Clinton. Click the image for a bigger picture if you need one.

Whatever the facts, it's sort of a metaphor for the troubles of the Clinton campaign.

    Very funny. To be honest, the first thing i noticed was the lady’s shirt. What a great pic. I would bet that this was staged. Wouldn’t you?
