Hillary Clinton is like every other Democrat. Depending on who she is speaking to, as in the crowd of voters, she changes her accent.
So when Hillary first started out, she had that all-important Southern accent when campaign with Bill Clinton in Arkansas. Then, as Hillary started running for her New York Senate seat, her accent dramatically changed.
And now, she just sounds entirely different than she ever has before.
The idea is to pander, pander, pander!
Take a look at Hillary’s forever-changing accent, courtesy of Bloomberg:
During her tenure in politics, Hillary Clinton has shifted between several distinct versions of American English. This is not terribly unusual. President Barack Obama has been known to change his pronunciation according to region and audience. But the thing about Clinton is that she’s been in the game for so long, and has had so many different jobs and lived in so many different places, that her various accents wind up mapping her career.
Interest in Clinton’s accent was renewed Wednesday, when she seemed to slip back into a drawl. Speaking at the South Carolina Democratic Women’s Council, Clinton replaced a lot of “I” sounds with “ah” sounds, a habit she’s picked up sporadically over the years.
Is there anything this woman won’t do to get elected?!
