Hillary’s planted question

Hillary Clinton took a planted question at a bio-diesel plant in Newton, Iowa this week, similarly to how George W. Bush does it at his events. The question was about global warming, and there’s nothing wrong with addressing that most important issue. However, it’s still wrong to plant questions. The problem with planted questions is that they can prevent other people from asking tougher questions. For example, somebody could have asked her any of the following:

1. Will you repudiate Bill Clinton’s record on global warming, not submitting the Kyoto Protocol to the Senate for ratification, and not improving automobile fuel efficiency during his eight years in office?
2. Why did you vote to authorize the use of force in Iran with the Kyl-Lieberman amendment?
3. Will you support an independent investigation of 9/11?
4. Why haven’t you advocated censure and removal of Bush and Cheney?
5. Will you repudiate Bill Clinton’s use of depleted uranium in the former Yugoslavia?
6. Will you repudiate Bill Clinton’s signing of NAFTA?
7. Why won’t you support single payer universal health care? Is it because you are a top recipient of contributions from the health insurance industry, as documented in the movie “Sicko”?
8. Why won’t you refuse corporate contributions like Green Party candidates do?

Maybe you can think of more, for her and for the other Corporate Party candidates…
