hillary clinton plants questions a second time during campaign

Sunday, November 11th, 2007

the big surprise is that more candidates don’t do this. ‘W’ ‘s people always used to hand pick attendees to town hall meetings and rallies, but his campaign manager’s people were never caught feeding people questions.

i remember when arnold schwarzenegger ran the first time for the governorship of california, his press people asked reporters to submit his questions in advance of his first press conference. as he’d been doing this for most of his career and most likely views politics as a kind of theatre, he didn’t see anything wrong with the request.
