Bill Clinton has a meltdown in front of stunned superdelegates

The pressure is clearly getting to Bill Clinton:
But as the group moved together for the perfunctory photo, Rachel Binah, a former Richardson delegate who now supports Hillary Clinton, told Bill how "sorry" she was to have heard former Clinton campaign manager James Carville call Richardson a "Judas" for backing Obama.

It was as if someone pulled the pin from a grenade.

"Five times to my face (Richardson) said that he would never do that," a red-faced, finger-pointing Clinton erupted.

The former president then went on a tirade that ran from the media's unfair treatment of Hillary to questions about the fairness of the votes in state caucuses that voted for Obama.
Clinton then went on stage and told Democrats to "chill out." It speaks volumes about Clinton that he can shift gears so quickly between what are obviously his true feelings and what he'd like the rest of us to think.
