Clinton, LIke Bush, Plants Question To be Asked At Forum

10 November 2007 at 10:09:05 AM

I believe that most people that know how Bush not only restricts who gets to see him at his appearances but also rehearses the people on the stage, don't like the artificial nature of his PR stunts. Well, I don't like it when I see Democrats do it either.

An aide for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton gave a Grinnell College student a question to ask the Democratic presidential candidate during a forum this week in central Iowa.

That the question had been planted by the campaign was not mentioned at the event.

"This is not standard policy and will not be repeated again," the campaign said in a statement issued Friday night. Clinton herself did not know when she called on the student that the question had been suggested by one of her staff, the campaign said.

Yeah. I believe that. Yuh-huh. She might not have known that THAT question was one that had been suggested by her staff but it was HER staff that ginned up someone in the audience to ask the question.. and she didn't know her staff was DOING that? If she REALLY didn't, then I would expect that person is FIRED. Pronto.

A student, Muriel Gallo-Chasanoff, later told Grinnell College's student newspaper, The Scarlet & Black, that she was asked by a senior Clinton staffer to pose a question about global warming. She also said that staffers prompted the senator to call on her, the newspaper reported.

"A member of our staff did discuss a possible question about Sen. Clinton's energy plan at a forum," the campaign statement said.
