Hillary Clinton Develops Drawl

This morning, while with my daughter on her newspaper rounds, we had the radio on and heard a clip of Hillary Clinton addressing an audience down south. As I listened, I realized that she had added more than a hint of a drawl to her voice. Although she obviously lived in Arkansas, she was born in Chicago, went to college in Massachusetts, and represents New York in the US Senate. Just where the hell did the accent come from, when she normally doesn't have it? This seems like one of the most condescending and cynical political acts I've noticed in a long time. Why isn't anyone in the conventional media noting this? Are they all scared because the Clinton campaign accused them of bias?
