Yeahbut, as conspiracies go this one is not exactly Machiavellian. Stephanopolous' role as the virtual creator of Clinton's rapid-response "War Room" spin machine helped convince me it was a setup. And does the fact that Dems have a name for this strategy - The Colorado Model (from my second link at the referenced comment) - not serve to prove that they do this stuff intentionally?
I told you I had heard it from smart people.
Thanks, I missed the linked article last time and it is very good. But I think I agree with you and still hold to my original point. The semi-retired Clintonista (like Marines, there are no ex-Clintonistas) was certainly trying to paint Romney as 'extreme" for opposing Griswold.
That's an admittedly crappy thing for a debate moderator to pull, but the blood has been dry on that contract for some time. What it is not is proof of collusion with the current White House as "battlespace preparation" for the ObamaCare ruling on contraception.
