Anyone surprised? Personally, I'm not. This is just one more rung down the ladder of ethics that the Clinton's possess. She continues to lose credibility...

Surprised, absolutely not. Disgusted, yes. And people are actually still going to vote for this woman.

And too it proves that she does not believe she can win on her own merit, she needs to put plants in the audience so she can push her own agenda and appear well versed and quick on her feet fielding questions?

She may just do herself in if she keeps these stunts up.

Not surprised.

I'm sure that audiences at ALL of these events have dudes who are planted there, by any or all sides, and who are to ask questions which allow a candidate to expound on their platform, or to ask loaded questions to make the speaker look bad.

Hell, I was a plant who asked a scripted question in a goofy town hall meeting in the Pentagon. The meeting was webcast to the armed forces and we were talking about smart cards and other new technologies. I'm sure it's done everywhere.

So you're justifying it and saying it's fine?

If the story was about Rudy or Mitt planting a question would you be saying the same thing?

Obviously even Hillary is embarrassed and realizes she was caught in another questionable act because she is contrite and said it would not happen again. But I am sure there are those followers who will once again give her a pass. . .

This is one of the smaller reasons why I hope she doesn't win the nomination. I have to say though, it's more than a little disengenious for any Bush supporters to feign outrage at this, considering he perfected the staged "town halls", the staged "economic conferences", and well, too many staged events with planted questions to list.

I hope liberals don't dismiss this just because it's Clinton doing this, because this is a terrible trend in US politics. But for any conservatives whining about this, get over it. You don't really care about the principle involved here, you just don't like her.
