Speechifying General Was on Hillary's Steering Committee
CNN employs YouTube, but not Google.

So the folks at CNN selected a question from a retired general with a pretty impressive service record to question them all on whether "don't ask, don't tell" should be dropped. The first candidate to answer was Duncan Hunter, who gave a pretty clear "No" answer (it took the full time, but was still pretty unequivocally "No.") At this point, I was distracted by something in the house, so I didn't catch all the answers, but I did also hear one of the other candidates say something to the effect of "No, because it's working." Then CNN cut to the guy, who was in the audience, whereupon he inexplicably said that he "didn't get an answer," and then was allowed to speechify for a longer period of time than any of the candidates got to answer any question.
Turns out, via our commenter smagar, that this guy is on Hillary's steering committee.
Way to go, CNN. Way to display journalistic competence and put to rest all those accusations of bias.
Oh, yeah, Ron Paul is a scumbag butcher-apologizing moron. I was wrong: he's no better than most of his supporters, except that he uses less four-letter words.
UPDATE (by Dan McLaughlin): Anderson Cooper says he didn't ask and should have told:
Hilarious, really, that a Hillary campaign official would plant a question...criticizing a policy enacted by Hillary's husband.
