Getting a mite rough for Clinton junior. For the first time, she is facing the kind of scrutiny that has bedeviled the candidates and their surrogates along the campaign trail.
During a long day of campaigning in Oregon on Saturday, she mentioned at two different stops that during the course of the campaign a 7-year-old and an 11-year-old had separately asked her "with terror in their eyes" what will become of the Social Security system. It's possible they were precocious, or that their parents put them up to it, but one skeptical blogger wrote afterward that the story was "stunning in its absurdity."
She might have misspoken. (When asked for details, such as where and when Clinton met the children, the campaign could not provide them.)
