CNN, as part of its Republican debate with YouTube, failed to mention that retired general Keith Kerr, who announced he was gay after his retirement from the Army, is a member of Hillary Clintonâ€™s “LGBT Americans For Hillary Steering Committee.” Not only did General Kerr ask the question via a YouTube video, but he was also present in the audience, and got to ask the candidates for a “straight answer” (pardon the pun).
General Kerrâ€™s, whose question came 47 minutes into the 9 pm Eastern hour the debate, is also part of the Servicemembersâ€™ Legal Defense Network’s advisory council, an organization “dedicated to ending discrimination against and harassment of military personnel affected by ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ and related forms of intolerance”

For example, Journey from Arlington, Texas
And, then exposed as a John Edwards supporter post debate:
For EVEN more PLANTS take it over to FREEP.
Last night’s debate was lively but the FLAWS in the format are readily apparent. Flap prefers substantiative debate of issues rather than the gimmicks and sound bites that are dominating the television airwaves.
Can we return to issue-driven debates for the remainder of the race for 2008?
