Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was born and raised in Illinois and has lived in New York and Washington D.C. for over two decades. But bizarrely enough, Clinton’s southern accent reemerged as soon as she gave a speech in Columbia, South Carolina. (VIDEO: MSNBC’s Mika: Hillary Is ‘So Removed,’ Makes ‘Immoral’ Amount Of Money)

Many political observers watching Clinton’s speech immediately picked up on the accent shift.


It’s a rather happy coincidence that Clinton’s accent from the old Arkansas days reasserted itself when it was most politically expedient, rather than at her glitzy upcoming $2,700-a-ticket Manhattan fundraiser.
