    It seems that question was a plant not by Senator Clinton’s team, but CNN:

    On Friday, the student who asked the question told FOXNews.com that she felt hung out to dry, and said she was facing criticism from fellow students.

    Calls left seeking comment from CNN were not immediately returned.

    Maria Parra-Sandoval, 22, a senior political science major at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, said she wanted to ask the Democratic frontrunner where she stood on the proposed Yucca Mountain nuclear repository in Nevada, an issue about which she said she wrote a paper as a finalist for a Truman Scholarship.

    Instead, she said, CNN’s Suzanne Malveaux told her right before the end of the debate to go with the following question:

    “This is a fun question for you. Do you prefer diamonds or pearls?”

    Why would you want to ask something insignifcant and boring, like a question about Yucca mountain, which is only relevant to the future of our country, when you could ask a truly important one like the female equivalent of boxer’s or briefs?

    I figure it was a loaded question leading towards the possibility of the answer “pearls”.

    What is the little ditty about,”You can put a pig in pearls, but you’ll still have a pig”?

    Ratings Doug…ratings. Same reason why these news channels get pundits to host shows rather than analysts. Anne coulter, sean hannity, lou dobbs, and the like do not belong on news stations. They are not journalists…they tell some people what they want to hear and make everyone else angry to they can sell their books and further divide the country rather than unite America to solve the problems that it faces. There is more money is this diversion than there is in boring tid bits of information that affect people. There I go again, stating the obvious.
