Protesters Outside Carville v. Rove at Radio City

I attended the final Radio City Speaker Series last night, which featured a debate between James Carville and Karl Rove, moderated by Charlie Rose. It was a raucous, contentious fight between the two undisputed heavyweight champions of presidential politics. Both men would latch onto keywords, screaming them to no one in particular when the other was trying to make a point. (Rove: "13%!" referring to Pelosi's favorability; Carville: "Massive incompetence!" referring to our most recent former president)

It doesn't seem like any video has surfaced yet of the event itself, though I'm sure someone must have caught the moment when a woman jumed onstage holding handcuffs while another woman in the balcony was screaming "Karl Rove is a war criminal!" In lieu of that footage, here are some interviews with protesters who were outside Radio City before the event explaining why they thing Karl Rove should be tried for war crimes.
