In some cases, it’s been done with a hammer instead of a velvet glove. And, you know, that’s part of it. But this has been certainly a thing that’s been used over the — I think if Vice President Biden had answered the question somewhat differently, it would have been a different result. Because they really did hit him hard on that one. But it is certainly a primary method of getting people to schools.
