ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took a short break from the intense New Hampshire campaign trail on Sunday (February 7) to satisfy a sweet tooth with a visit to a Dunkin' Donuts in Manchester. The White House hopeful perused the sugary offerings on the menu board with her close confidante and campaign vice chairwoman, Huma Abedin. Clinton, who also made a short stop on Sunday to Flint, Michigan, told a reporter at Dunkin Donuts that her Michigan stop was to help the mayor deal with the city's water crisis, which has captured international attention. She said her rival, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, made a brief detour in his own New Hampshire campaign the day before to make an appearance in New York on the NBC variety program Saturday Night Live. Clinton also briefly chatted with a young girl in the donut shop about glass ceilings for women. The young girl's mother told the former secretary of state, "My daughter says she doesn't want you to win because she wants to be the first female president." Speaking directly to the young girl, Clinton said, "You know what? I'll make it easier for you... when I win, you won't have to worry abou t breaking the glass ceiling by being the first." Clinton, who is leading rival Bernie Sanders, 48 to 45 percent, among Democratic voters nationwide is facing stiff competition from the Vermont Senator in the New Hampshire primary, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.
