Hillary Clinton's planted question gaffe (Philip Sherwell, 11/11/2007, Daily Telegraph)

Hillary Clinton has been caught answering a planted question on global warming from a member of the audience during a supposedly spontaneous session with voters in the key first caucus state of Iowa. [...]

It came last week as Sen Clinton called on a student for a question. Muriel Gallo-Chasanoff asked how she planned to combat climate change.

The former First Lady replied: "You know, I find as I travel around Iowa that it's usually young people that ask me about global warming."

The student later said that one of Sen Clinton's staff asked her to put the question to Sen Clinton and then signalled to the candidate to choose her.

It's to their credit that the Clintons realize that if they let down their hair and showed us what they're like the voters would run screaming in terror. The phonier they keep it the better.
