To fault someone for being openly emotional is akin to berating a child for crying over their dead pet.
If it's simple theatrics, so be it, but it's also wholly human and natural.

I suppose we should get used to people in public office crying like ninnies for no reason but their own feelings.

Quite frankly it does not seem professional.

I don't care if he smokes, in fact I hope he smokes enough to get the most benefit from his socialized health insurance that he can get. That's his choice.

Having him crying on the public dime should not be something the taxpayer even has to think about.

Crying is as natural as sweating.
"Professional" is another word for false, puffed-up, and insincere.
Apparently you want demagogues, not representatives.

I did not know that, but Ted Kennedy drank some too and i don't recall him crying publicly. Apparently he held his liquor in a different place.
