    I thought it was a bit cruel of them to release the clip of her leaving to other media outlets. Fox ran it a bunch and, even though she's a Dem, I must admit that I did feel sorry for her.

    Of course, if someone is bad at public speaking and gets unnerved easily , they probably shouldn't be in Congress.

    Yeah - stage fright is a bitch. I've seen some terrible cases of it. What you folks are saying is true, though. She appears to have made a poor career choice.

    Um.... Yeah. What a surprise, it may hurt her chance to win if she cannot complete a debate! :shocked:

    Who'da thunk it?!

    If I were her I wouldn't have asked for a debate until I had participated in live debate once or twice. This will kill her in the polls even more than Ross Perot dropping out then coming back. I bet her handlers are pissed.
