This is what it was like if you tried to get close to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as she left her first campaign event Monday in Keene, NH.

You didn’t have a chance.

If you were lucky, you might have caught a glimpse of  her walking into her only event today–in Concord–and this is probably all you’d see.

For someone who wants to warm up to voters, it’s a cold campaign, especially given what she said when she announced for president:

“Everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion,” said Clinton in her campaign kick-off video.

But who exactly is that?

“By ‘everyday’ she  obviously means ‘ordinary,’ ‘regular,’ ‘run-of-the-mill.'” according to the New York Times. Which are not words anyone would use to describe Hillary Clinton.

And everyday Americans know it:    

Andy Hiller asks:  “Are you an everyday American?”
Kevin Howland says:  “I am.”
Hiller asks someone else:  “Do you think you’re an everyday person?”
June Whitcomb says:  “I hope so.  Yes.”
Hiller asks Howland:  “Is she (Hillary Clinton) an everyday American?”
Howland:  “Definitely not.”
Hiller:  “Why do you say that?”
Howland:  “She’s got a mansion or two, she’s rich, and she has no clue what it’s like to be unemployed for a couple of years.”

Hiller asks Whitcomb:  “Do you think she lives a life like you lead?”
Whitcomb:  “I think she’d like to.”
Hiller:  “But she can’t?”
Whitcomb:  “Right.”
Hiller:    “How come?”
Whitcomb:  “Because she’s in the limelight, and when you’re in the limelight, you can’t live like an everyday person.”  

I look at the vehicles Hillary Clinton travels around in, and I think that every candidate wants to be authentic–which is just another way of saying “real.” But the way Hillary Clinton is campaigning isn’t real…And until she changes it, everyday Americans will see that every day.
