Some meltdowns go in the politicians' favor, at least in the short term. During the campaign for the New Hampshire primary in 2008, then Sen. Hillary Clinton showed some real emotion in a coffee shop. "This is very personal for me," she said. "Some people think elections are a game, about who's up, who's down. It's about our country." Voters bought it and Clinton won the primary.
