Protecting fragile, delicate Hillary

Posted by Richard on November 14, 2007

Hillary "I am woman, hear me roar" Rodham Clinton, the smartest woman in the world, the idol of feminists, the tough-as-nails broad who makes Republican fat cats quake in their Armanis, sure does seem to rely a lot on planted softball questions, friendly reporters' softball questions, and — on the rare occasion when she's asked a substantive question — scores of outraged supporters rallying to her defense and savaging the ogre who dared to confront her.

Jonah Goldberg:

First the Clinton campaign whines that the other candidates were picking on the girl. Then, standing up to Russert is like standing up to Hitler. Then Bill Clinton compared Russert to the Swift Boat Vets. Now the Clinton campaign is warning Wolf Blizter that he better not "pull a Russert." From Drudge:

CNN's Wolf Blitzer has been warned not to focus Thursday's Dem debate on Hillary. 'This campaign is about issues, not on who we can bring down and destroy,' top Clinton insider explains. 'Blitzer should not go down to the levels of character attack and pull 'a Russert.'' Blitzer is set to moderate debate from Vegas, with questions also being posed by Suzanne Malveaux… Developing… 

Again, can someone please explain to me, how asking the junior Senator from New York state whether she agrees with the governor of the state (and a close political ally) on the question of drivers licenses for illegals is even remotely wrong, never mind some sort of vicious, Nazi-like, personal assault on truth, decency, and Hillary Clinton's integrity? I really, really, don't get it

I don't get it either. Characterizing a simple, straightforward "Do you agree with Governor Spitzer?" question about an issue in the news as a "character attack" is straight out of Bizarro World.

But I've got some advice for Wolf Blitzer, especially if he chooses to ignore the warning and treat Sen. Clinton just like any other candidate: Wolf, if an anonymous source wants to meet with you in Fort Marcy Park, don't go!
