All candidates have their patent campaign moves. For Hillary Clinton, it is the point and wave. You know you are no longer the press’s darling when they expose your secret (popat kiya in Bombay lingo) as Dana Milbank did in Washington Post today:
2:57 p.m., Yeager Airport, Charleston, W.Va.: A steep descent brings Clinton’s plane to Charleston’s hilltop airport.After an appropriate wait, she steps from the plane and pretends to wave to a crowd of supporters; in fact, she is waving to 10 photographers underneath the airplane’s wing. She pretends to spot an old friend in the crowd, points and gives another wave; in fact, she is waving at an aide she had been talking with on the plane minutes earlier.
