What does 'this' refer to in the sentence? Hello, What does 'this' refer when Hilery said "This is very personal for me." from the following conversation. ------------------------------ "My question is very personal," a sympathetic female voter in New Hampshire asked the candidate in January 2008. "How do you do it? And famously cold, hard Hillary Clinton, figuring that her quest to be president was twenty-four hours from ending, choked up and got teary. "It's not easy," she answered. "You know, this is very personal for me." How do you keep upbeat?" You're right. I rewrite the sentence. My question is what 'this' means in the Hillery's answer. "My question is very personal," a sympathetic female voter in New Hampshire asked the candidate in January 2008. "How do you do it? How do you keep upbeat?" And famously cold, hard Hillary Clinton, figuring that her quest to be president was twenty-four hours from ending, choked up and got teary. "It's not easy," she answered. "You know, this is very personal for me."

From looking at where this comes from: http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2008/01/clinton-gets-em/, it seems that "this" is referring to Hillary Clinton's campaign. Hillary is saying that her running for president is something important and personal to her.

Actually, I can't see who said what. Your quotation marks are all over the place.
