This always makes me laugh

Since my short term memory is not so great, I laugh when someone sends this to me, even if I have read it before, I have usually forgotten the punch-line.

This test only has one question, but it's a very important one. By giving
an honest answer, you will discover where you stand morally. The test
features an unlikely, completely fictional situation in which you will have
to make a decision. Remember that your answer needs to be honest,
yet spontaneous. Please scroll down slowly and give due consideration
to each line.

You are in Florida -- Miami to be specific. There is chaos all around you
caused by a hurricane with severe flooding. This is a flood of biblical
proportions. You are a photojournalist working for a major newspaper,
and you're caught in the middle of this epic disaster. The situation is
nearly hopeless. You're trying to shoot career-making photos. There are
houses and people swirling around you, some disappearing under the
water. Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury.
Suddenly you see a woman in the water. She is fighting for her life, trying
not to be taken down with the debris. You move closer. Somehow the
woman looks familiar. You suddenly realize who it is --- it's Hillary Clinton!
At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to take her
under forever. You have two options: You can save the life of Hillary Clinton
or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the
death of one of the world's most powerful women (in her mind, at least).

Here's the question, and please give an honest answer:

"Would you select high contrast color film, or would you go with the
classic simplicity of black and white?
