Waste of time, yes, but not through her fault. It is something H. Clinton should know that flamboyant appearances of pop stars in election campaigns haven't got the slightest influence on actual elections. If anything, I'd criticise Clinton for possibly thinking she could let others do a large part of the work for her, and in the wrong way. I watched Katy's 'gigs' at the rallys for the sake of watching her alone while another part of me was thinking, what do they think they're doing. I think the pets are just loved and cared for in a group of people, it's unimportant if this dog or cat is by definition this or that person's.
