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...

The fix is in. How can the Democrat’s debate in Las Vegas moderated by Wolf Blitzer this Thursday night be fair now that Hillary Clinton is dictating the terms of fairness? According to the Drudge Report that’s exactly what she’s doing.
All male debaters should withdraw from Thursday’s debate, why? With this one warning Clinton operatives have tilted the up-coming debate in favor of reverse sexism and in favor of one woman, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
This debate is now tainted with spurious sexism charges that will influence everything; every question and every answer because the Clinton Campaign began to toss around the sexism card from the last debate prompted by Senator Clinton’s losing effort a week ago.
Now any question to Hillary will be carefully asked so not to offend her or women, any rebuttal will be seen as an attack against her. Hillary has poisoned the water and given herself an unfair advantage from this point on.
It’s like affirmative action gone amok. Because Hillary’s camp has made her sex the issue, the unspoken thought on everyone’s minds; those who participate or those who watch this debate will be thinking, “Hillary Clinton is a woman.” That thought will be the 900lb gorilla on the stage. The moderators will treat her differently than the other candidates. Oh they wouldn’t think so and they will tell you that they won’t, but they will!
We all will! And that’s not fair to the male Democrat hopefuls.
We will all be looking to see how the woman was treated in the debates; or did the men hold back because she’s a woman? Did the moderators treat her special because she’s a woman? Did the men get different questions than the woman? Or did the men get more or did they get fewer questions than the woman?
Hillary has created an affirmative action nightmare and she isn’t even the Democrat nominee yet!
Democrats John Edwards and Barack Obama have run from debates (withdrawn) for much lesser reasons. For instance the mere mention of the Fox News Network put the Democrats all in a thither. See here, here and here.
Democrats have cancelled all debates that where co-sponsored by Fox because of moveon.org netroot pressure on Democrat Leadership. The Radical leftist wing of the Democrat Party has forced its leadership from appearing in debates on Fox. Apparently Democrats think that they won’t be treated fairly on Fox. So will debating Hillary now that she has “warned” Wolf Blitzer be fair? NO!
Wolf Blitzer says he is not being pressured by any campaign: 'No one has pressured me. No one has threatened me. No one is trying to intimidate me'One question Mr. Blitzer who asked you if you were being pressured? Did any one ask you if you were being threatened or intimidated?
The fact that you feel that you have to answer an unasked question says to me that in fact you do feel pressured, threatened and intimidated. This will be more than evident on tomorrow night when you let Hillary skate through without one significant question or one follow up question or one challenge to something ridiculous that she might say. You’ll let her skate to a de facto win by default. You have a history of allowing Clinton to have her way in an interview Mr. Blitzer.
The only way that the other Democrat hopefuls, who happen to be men, can be on fair footing with Hillary tomorrow night is to remove the reverse sexism that Senator Clinton has introduced into the race which she is using against them, an impossible feat at best!
No one is going to feel comfortable in this debate because Clinton has played the sexism card so the men will attempt to go forward pretending all the while that Mrs. Clinton doesn’t have the advantage of her claim of sexism over them. Clinton has effectively made all the other Democrats “racists” and this next meeting a NAACP meeting!
The men do have an option, they could treat tomorrow’s debates like the Fox network and cut and run, pull out and leave Hillary on stage to answer questions all alone.
I realize that they won’t withdraw from the debate even though it would be the right thing to do. So at the very least their campaigns must issue a statement today that they feel that Hillary Clinton has unfairly turned this debate into a men against women event which it is not. It is a debate about the merits of each candidate.
Further each of the men participating in tomorrow’s debate should state that they are participating under protest citing the Clinton campaign’s pre-emptive warning to Wolf Blizter as an attempt to unfairly influence the conducting and the outcome of the debate.
Or they could do the right thing and withdraw from the debate. Only thing is Blitzer wouldn’t be able to get Senator Clinton to answer one single question even if she were on that stage alone!
