Clinton follows Bush campaign's press strategy

  • 2 Comments
  • by: Another skeptic

And, of course, Bush learned the strategy from his dad and Slick Willy.

The strategy allows Mrs. Clinton – who rarely holds press availabilities – to avoid taking questions from reporters who cover her campaign and who might have detailed follow-up queries to her carefully planned policy announcements.

Mrs. Clinton’s rivals for the Democratic presidential nomination have been painting her as someone who dodges tough questions or parses answers to difficult issues. Her opponents stepped up the pressure after it was revealed her campaign staff planted two questions with supporters at a campaign event.

Former Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina regularly accuses Mrs. Clinton of “double-talk,” and his campaign created a “Plants for Hillary” spoof Web site to highlight the issue.

“Not answering questions because we’re afraid our answers won’t be popular just won’t do,” Mr. Obama of Illinois recently added to his stump speech.

  1. do you have a link?

    This is one of the main reasons why the Clinton Campaign is in  real trouble.
    Their internal polling must be showing them that when Hillary is asked real questions, she does poorly, and when she is asked fake planted questions, people find out about it.
    So her only option left? Ignore the public and hope she can ride through on her media driven poll lead.
    Guess what, that won’t impress a primary voter and the polls are proving it.
