Clinton Should Hold Open Casting Call for a Campaign Director

Frankly, this may be the best idea the Clinton campaign has had yet, to get ideas from green, inexperienced supporters.
The Hillary Clinton campaign is desperate for ideas, so desperate they're asking anyone, ANYONE, to send in ideas about how the campaign can gain some traction against Barack Obama. I'm thinking this kind of call should have been made a lot earlier.

The Hillary Clinton campaign did nothing in last night's debate to help their situation, which seems to be deteriorating fast, and some would say that Hillary really screwed up in last night's debate (I'm agreeing, because of the moment mentioned in the article, but also because of the smirk that appeared and stayed on Hillary Clinton's face). The point spread in Texas has moved from a Clinton edge of 16 points to an edge of 3 points in the latest Rasmussen poll. Hillary Clinton has also taken to borrowing words from John Edwards' speeches. (Some might call that plagiarism, but I'm not going to.) I'm saying here that thewse folks are getting desperate, but they've got the answer. They're wanting a new campaign manager, and they're holding an open casting call for the position. From the Telegraph:
Hillary Clinton's increasingly desperate campaign team held a phone-in yesterday for supporters to offer their advice on how to defeat Barack Obama.
The "helpline to Hillary" came as the former First Lady prepared for a televised debate with her rival for the Democratic nomination in Austin last night, where she needed a strong performance to revive her bid for the White House.
. . .
In an email seen by The Hill newspaper, the Clinton campaign chairman, Terry McAuliffe, invited supporters to ring in because "we want to hear your thoughts, advice and questions as we move forward to the March 4 primaries".
