Sen Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) was laughed at by the audience at the New Hampshire Senate Debate on Tuesday when she would not give a clear answer on whether she approved of the job President Obama is doing.
When asked to give a simple, yes or no response to a hypothetical pollster asking, “do you approve of the job President Obama is doing?” Shaheen responded, “in some ways I approve, and some things I don't approve,” a line that caused the audience to start laughing. She continued “like most questions that we deal with as policymakers there aren’t simple answers, yes or no.”
Audience Laughs at Shaheen for Ducking Question on Obama
"This isn't about my feelings being hurt," Obama told the Rev. Al Sharpton on MSNBC.
"These are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me, and I tell them, 'you know what, you do what you need to do to win. I will be responsible for making sure that our voters turn out.'"

She gave a reasonable answer, there are some things Obama is doing that she approves of and some that she doesn't. I'd have a similar answer, because it's not really a yes or no question. The people laughing may have been Scott Brown supporters.
