AUDUBON, Iowa – In early caucus and primary states, voters play one very important role in the presidential race long before they cast their ballots: They ask questions.Howie P.S.: I was surprised by the tone of this post on the conservative website, Townhall: "Obama Smoked the Ganja." Going a step further, an op-ed in the Houston Chronicle asks, "Why shouldn't Obama say that drug war's pure folly?"
And that, finally, opened the door to one of the final questions of the day, which was reminiscent of the famous line asked of Bill Clinton in the 1992 campaign: “Did you inhale?”
“I did. It’s not something I’m proud of. It was a mistake as a young man. But I never understood that line,” Mr. Obama said, pausing to recall Mr. Clinton’s insistence that he didn’t inhale. “The point was to inhale. That was the point.”
