Last night baseball fans learned that the long drought had ended. After 71 years the Chicago Cubs are going back to the World Series.
Hillary Clinton, who grew up in the Chicago area, learned the news after a rally in Philadelphia. Her traveling press secretary caught the moment when she made That Face.

Hillary’s excited because she’s been a lifelong Cubs fan.
That is, when she wasn’t a lifelong Yankees fan.
So which is it, Hillary? Yankees or Cubs?
It depends on whose votes she’s trying to get her grabby mitts on. Listen to her explain her way out of the dilemma back in 1999, when she was running for Senator from New York.
Umm, no Hillary. That’s not how this works. Yes, there’s a cross-town rivalry between the White Sox and the Cubs. But there are no fan requirements that you pick a team from both Column A and Column B. I’m a Kansas City Royals fan, which is an American League team. I’m not obligated to cheer for a National League team.
