She works for McCain, her husband works for him. The Obama campaign cut off farther interviews with her after finding out she's a McCain Minion.
She asked tough questions. Joe whined and didn't answer.
Now the Obama camp is taking their ball and running home.
What was so biased on the interview? she just asked him to explain what he had meant on his comment regarding Obama?,just another case of the Dem's whining again,if you don't do things my way I'll take my ball and go home,how childish
Obama's team took their ball and went home
A talking point is a neologism for an idea which may or may not be factual, usually compiled in a short list with summaries of a speaker's agenda for public or private engagements. Public relations professionals, for example, sometimes prepare "talking points memos" for their clients to help them more effectively conform public presentations with this advice. A political think tank will strategize the most effective informational attack on a target topic and launch talking points from media personalities to saturate discourse in order to frame a debate in their favor, standardizing the responses of sympathizers to their unique cause while simultaneously co-opting the language used by those discussing the specific subject. When used politically in this way, the typical purpose of a talking point is to propagandize, specifically using the technique of argumentum ad nauseam, i.e. continuous repetition within media outlets until accepted as fact.

Fact is, Biden and the Obama campaign felt the interview was biased and decided to cut them off. That seems like a bit of a tantrum.
At least Palin kept her promise to Katie Couric by doing all of her interviews even though Couric wanted nothing more than to put a knife in Palin's back.
Diss Palin all you want for botching the interviews, but she followed through on her word instead of breaking her promises. That's class. That's something Biden and Obama have NEVER been able to demonstrate.
Its a fair question, non-accusatory, asking Biden how he and Obama differ from Karl Marx.
