A big part of the noise you heard about Hillary's relatively minor gaffe is from the MSM covering their surprise and embarrassment(?).
The unspoken thinking may have gone something like this:
"Russert asked Hillary a hard question and pressed for an answer. Is that permitted? Should we all be doing that? You don't ask the Clintons embarrassing questions, and you never, never press for an answer. What if she's not inevitable, we're going to look really stupid! How do we play this so that we look professional, but don't throw too much dirt on Hillary, who probably is going to the next president?"

embarrass - To cause to feel self-conscious or ill at ease; disconcert
I believe that everyone in the U.S. government knows that reforming the UN is impossible. Apparently, the conscious decision has been made that maintaining a corrupt, incompetent, ineffective, sinkhole for money is better than withdrawing from the UN.
So we seem content to pay for the privilege of arming our enemies, propping up dictators and terrorists, allowing genocide, and subsidizing human rights abuses.Comment Posted By pilsener On 12.03.2007 @ 10:50
After the last election, Dionne joined the "say anything" crowd.
Under his analysis. Bill Clinton with 43% of the vote in 1992 should not have been able to appoint judges. Or with his 49.2% of the vote in 1996.Comment Posted By pilsener On 9.07.2005 @ 10:29
