Did Whitman miss a golden opportunity?
LONG BEACH, Calif. -- The California race for governor took an interesting twist Tuesday at Maria Shriver's annual California Women's Conference in Long Beach.
In addition to speakers Shriver and First Lady Michelle Obama, Jerry Brown and Meg Whitman were interviewed jointly by Today Show host Matt Lauer. The exchange got very interesting when Lauer asked both candidates if they would agree to pull their negative campaign ads from the airwaves.
The crowd cheered, but their responses quickly changed once the candidates answered. Some are saying that Meg Whitman lost the election in that moment. Others are saying that Lauer had no right to sandbag the candidates that way and the question was a cheap, grandstanding ploy on his part.
