When you hear the STUPID questions asked by Tim Russert and Brian Williams that are so NOT about the issues, you actually feel sorry for Obama and Clinton.
The difference between Obama and Clinton is that Obama wants to laugh in the reporters' faces and Clinton takes the question seriously.
By the way, "rejecting" something means to dismiss it as inappropriate. "Denouncing" something means to reject it as wrong or evil. So denouncing is actually stronger than rejecting, dummy!
