Irony, thy name is Marianne Pernold-Young:
Many political observers are crediting Democrat Hillary Clinton's surprise win in New Hampshire to the New York senator's rare display of emotion at a Portsmouth Coffee shop Monday morning.
But Clinton's tearful moment failed to win at least one Granite State voter -- the very woman who prompted her response in the first place.
Why, that's preposterous! That's nonsensical! That's...true.
Marianne Pernold-Young told CNN Wednesday she ultimately picked Barack Obama in Tuesday night's primary because of the Illinois senator's performance at a recent rally she attended.
"I was moved to tears. Not once, but twice," she said. "And he has this enormous electricity. And I was just taken aback. And I just had to go with my feelings."
