    The quote indicates that the public was and is still divided and that division of opinion shows in the differing reactions to the news.

    You guys are right. It's playing out even.

    Hi,

    Does even go with playing out, not with in public reaction...? I thought it was "But that is playing out (=unfolding) even in public reaction to..."?

    Not only has it become commonplace to observe sharp changes in the public's opinion of the electorate in the 2004 campaign, it has also become commonplace (even) in public reaction to the scandal.... :D

    Sorry to have confused you, CuriousT. It wasn't my intention to cut the quote off where I evidently did. It has been noted that the voters are sharply divided with regard to the campaign and wide extremes in public reaction have also been observed related to the scandal ...
