Poll question: Most "handled" Democratic politician
Who do you think has most of their opinions formed by handlers?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

3. and sometimes
even his 'handlers' can't handle him...

<snip>
"Mary, help!" he called to his press secretary, Mary Jacoby, at the front of the plane, as he faced questions about Iraq. "Come back and listen to this."

At one point, Ms. Jacoby interrupted the interview, which included four reporters who were traveling on the general's jet, to make certain that General Clark's views on the original Iraq resolution were clear.

"I want to clarify we're moving quickly here," Ms. Jacoby said. "You said you would have voted for the resolution as leverage for a U.N.-based solution."

"Right," General Clark responded. "Exactly."

General Clark said he saw his position on the war as closer to that of members of Congress who supported the resolution Representative Richard A. Gephardt of Missouri and Senators Joseph I. Lieberman of Connecticut, John Kerry of Massachusetts and John Edwards of North Carolina than that of Howard Dean, the former Vermont governor who has been the leading antiwar candidate in the race.

Merely because you deliberately left him off the poll when the answer is negative. I would assume you're afraid he will "win"
