YouTube video: Hillary vs. the coffee maker

Hillary Clinton's struggle with a gas station coffee maker has already gotten nearly a half-million views on YouTube in the 18 hours since it was first posted on AMERICAblog by Joe Sudbay. Those are huge numbers, even by viral video standards.

First lesson, don't think your tips don't matter - they do. Worse for Hillary, the coffee machine debacle harkens back to George Bush, the elder, and how he expressed amazement on first seeing a grocery scanner that the rest of us had seen for years. The video made Bush look out of touch. Kind of like not knowing how to make yourself a cup of coffee - Turtle’s daily quote: I'm sorry, cappuccino. Elitist, heal thyself.
