Wasserman Schultz Tames Fox News

In her capacity as a leading Democratic surrogate, West Broward Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has had some tense moments while appearing on the allegedly "Fair and Balanced" news network. But two weeks after revealing that in the past year she had seven surgeries to defeat breast cancer, Fox News yesterday made Wasserman Schultz its Power Player of the Week. In the video, she tells of gutting out a campaign fund-raising appearance while hiding a "pain pack" in her purse.

Yes, she managed to stay sharp through the cancer treatment, as evidenced by this video from a year ago, where Wasserman Schultz slapped around Fox anchor Brit Hume. (After the jump.)
