    If she claimed climate change is a hoax, then she is another idiot. But whether she did or not, her reaction to the questions asked must be nuanced. I believe she fled the interview because she believed that it would be the least damaging option.

    Option 1 - Assert that global warming is a hoax -> Give the Democrats some red meat.

    Option 2 - Deny that global warming is a hoax -> Lose support from members of her own party.

    Option 3 - Flee the interview -> Stay alive for now.

    I know it's not what you want to hear, but after all, she is one of those slimy critters known as a politician. Democrat? Republican? Doesn't matter. Slime? Yea, definitely that. LOL.

    This lady was obviously not well prepared for this interview.

    Kind of reminds me of Sarah Palin.

    Any thoughts?
    Sarah indeed. Yet another empty suit conservative woman. I swear the righties run these hot looking bimbos out there and all the rednecks get a woodie and vote for them.

    In other words you support the idea of putting the likelihood of election ahead of being honest and providing straightforward information for the electorate. That's sad. I would hope no one would support that. Alas.

    Empty suit and empty head, it seems for both as well.

    It's on par with, "Have you stopped beating your wife."
    Are you serious? It's a simple question with a simple answer. "Hawaii." Or if she's a birther, voters have a right to know that.

    A good politician would turn the question around or just give some kind of nonsense answer as shown below.


    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    I didn't say I supported it at all. Please read my post in the context I gave it. I explained why she did it, and don't forget that I also said she was slime.

    My bad, I didn't read the last line. The previous post sounded like you were saying it was her "best" option. I was still focused on that. My bad.
