  •  He's not naive (none)
    The man is in politics.  I really doubt he thought there was ANY politically-focused site where he wouldn't find people of all sorts of opinions.  And that some wouldn't agree with him.  I don't think that people who disagree with him need to offer pretend kudos.  Sure, a few people went overboard, but I think there was a lot of honest passion that was expressed in a respectful, intelligent and thoughtful manner.

    It's not a chess match -- he's going to EXPECT passion.....at least I sure as hell hope so!

    He isn't a fragile flower -- I doubt he ever planned to stay around for questions, but if he had a staffer monitor response, he got a wide range of input, which tells him that DailyKos isn't in dreamy lockstep, following some guru of Democratic thought.  Feedback can sometimes sting, but all feedback is valuable in some way or another.

    If a politician is shocked by criticism, then I'll be shocked.
