Turning up the heat UPDATE

Posted By on Sat, Feb 9, 2008 at 5:50 PM

Hillary turns up the heat on David Shuster. Yeah, she's playing the gender card -- overplaying it, probably, though there's ample reason to employ it.

UPDATE: ABC's Jake Tapper writes that firing Shuster is not what Hillary Clinton's letter is about. It's about MSNBC doing something about the towel-popping, sexist male locker room atmosphere that constitute's most of the network's lineup, Keith excepted. Understandable sentiment. ButiIn rallying her base on this issue, Clinton will stir more media and public enmity. "She's just playing the victim card," etc. You think by now she'd have learned The Clinton Rule. You may say ANYTHING, up to and including murder allegations, about any member of the Clinton family without fear of reprisal.
