    .....One caller from Oklahoma City said that “the questions … were designed to incite a brawl,” and that Russert’s and Brian Williams’s moderating was “an abdication of journalistic responsibility.”

    Another said Russert “should be shot,” before quickly adding that she shouldn’t say that on a conference call.

    Penn and Mantz said they were hearing a lot of the same sentiment from other supporters, but they do not plan to engage the media or the debate’s moderators.

    “We’re not challenging the media on that, but the sentiment you’ve expressed is obviously one I’ve heard,” Penn said.

    Penn added that he conducted polling before and after the debate — a focus group, perhaps — that saw Clinton as the winner. Sen. Joseph Biden (Del.) “had a good night” and John Edwards “did better,” Penn said, though he added Edwards’s numbers have been going down. “Obama did not have a particularly good night,” Penn said.

    Those results diverge sharply from the assessment of most analysts who watched the debate, and thought Clinton did poorly. Her campaign appeared to be in full damage-control mode Wednesday.....

    Clinton as punching bag - a sign of things to come



    By John Whitesides, Political Correspondent
    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - It was Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton's first turn as a punching bag and her pummeling in a debate at the hands of White House rivals was a clear sign of things to come.

    Absurd. The media should ask tough questions.

    Heaven knows every other candidate is being routinely interrogated. And rightfully so.

    Front runners are the ones who are attacked the most. Clinton will have to deal with this as will the leaders on the republican campaign. It's part of the job.
