"Pull a Russert"?

Pete DeGaudio posts a piece of a story:

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer has been warned not to focus Thursday’s Dem debate on Hillary. ‘This campaign is about issues, not on who we can bring down and destroy,’ top Clinton insider explains. ‘Blitzer should not go down to the levels of character attack and pull ‘a Russert.” Blitzer is set to moderate debate from Vegas, with questions also being posed by Suzanne Malveaux...

That reference is to Russert's attempt to pin down the Hildebeeste on the question of whether New York State should issue driver's licences to illegals.

Natch, she gave two answers plus a couple of clarifications, none of which actually answered the question.

Oh, well.

In the meantime, Russert is maligned. If anything, he leans Left personally, but he's a damn sharp newsman with a good sense of "fair play."

One wonders why the Hildebeeste thinks she can insult and alienate Russert this early...
