MSNBC: What’s your take on several supporters of Democratic candidates showing up on camera asking questions during the GOP debate?

Russert: I think you have to vet things very carefully. If you are going to use people like that, you have to make sure they don’t bring a bias or an ideology. That’s a real downside.

To have someone who supports Clinton or Obama or Edwards showing up at a Republican debate asking questions, I believe is inappropriate.
