Very Clintonian.

um, wait, just who started this trend?

who preselected his audience throughout the 2004 campaign?

who keeps protesters hundreds of yards away from any speaking event?

who gets scripted questions from blushing moms about how his faith guides his decisions?

i'm not going to excuse Hillary, but do NOT say it's Clintonian -- it is absolutely, positively BUSHIAN/ROVIAN.

Well as we all know by now there is one set of rules and standards for GWB, another entirely different set of standards and rules for Hillary Clinton. GWB doesn't have a vajayjay.

But she did the same thing in '99, predating Ganon.

but absolutely nothing in her past compares with what Bush did in 2004 where entire audiences were pre-screened and every single question was scripted.

i'm sure audience plants go back hundreds of years.

I think, when it comes down to it, it's a politician thing, and neither a Democratic/Republican issue.

Sad, but that's the way things are.

Hehe...every time I hear that word now I can't help but think of "The Soup".

Anywho, yeah, I agree, I'm pretty sure that candidates from both sides have been guilty of doing that over the years. I don't agree with it at all-if you're that terrified of having to face tough questions that you resort to those measures, I really question why you even bother running for office-but as stated, that's how things are. We should start bringing more attention to this method, though.
