In a sort of hybrid of the town-hall format and the more standard debate, CNN has dispatched White House Correspondent Suzanne Malveaux into the audience, where real people who symbolize certain issues have been planted with questions for the candidates. First up, a serviceman who has served three tours in Iraq, and his mother, who calls his tours in Iraq as participation in "Iraq's civil war." The question, however, is about Iran, and after Joe Biden was asked to answer, Clinton was put on the hot seat because, per Wolf Blitzer, her vote for the Kyl-Lieberman resolution. I'm not loving this reality-show take on the debate format.
