Fresh off of her ‘Battle in Brooklyn’ last night, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took a bit of a breather Friday morning during a visit to an East Harlem senior center. Let’s just say that for all the talk about “winning” that has emerged from the Republican frontrunner, Clinton is the one looking pretty victorious today.
As seniors do, Clinton engaged in a friendly game of dominoes, and cell phone footage reveals the exact moment that the former New York Senator again claimed victory — of a different sort:

CNN’s Dan Merica was on hand and Tweeted out the above video. “You win! You win! Oh my god!” exclaimed one of the seniors at the table excitedly.
Ever the politician, Clinton knew the appropriate follow-up line to hit at the exact moment: “So help me win next Tuesday!” she said to cheers from the gathered crowd. In just three days, New York voters will head to the polls for the all-important state-wide primary, with nearly 300 delegates up for grabs on the Democratic side. Clinton, who used last night’s CNN debate as a means of reminding the crowd about her years of service to the Empire State, is locked in a heated battle with Brooklyn-born Bernie Sanders for the heart, minds, and most importantly votes of the Democratic base.
