A staffer swooped open a curtain, and chaos ensued. Four large American flags came crashing in front of Senator Clinton as she headed for the door. In a controlled panic,  the staffers and the Senator attempted to catch the flags before they fell to the ground.Watch the i-CAUGHT VIDEO HERE."I think the bases are not weighted enough," Clinton said as she propped flags back up. One of Clinton's aides quickly summoned the advance man in charge to assist in the crisis.
