49. Rather like Ed Schultz hammering Hillary for not being on his show
as some have said the motivation is for the Ed hate.

Either way, seems like a bit of an ego thing. Show up for my event or I will hammer you. How about going after someone because you don't like their policies, and not because they didn't kiss your talk show butt.
