THE CLINTON FAMILY TRADEMARK!
Notice the qualifications attached to a lot of that because those caveats are important. This is the typical Clinton machine footprint. What we have here is someone (Edwards) that the Clintons have decided was “disloyal” because he endorsed Barack Hussein Obama rather than Hillary. He is (or was) widely believed to be on Senator Obama’s “short list” of vice presidential candidates, although I find that hard to believe. Surely Senator Obama isn’t THAT stupid – John Edwards would have lost reelection to the Senate after only one term in office had he not opted to be John Kerry’s running mate, and furthermore, he couldn’t even carry the state of North Carolina in the 2004 election.
Nevertheless, in late 2007 the National Enquirer published a story about Rielle “carrying Edwards' love child” (and how florid is THAT language – I mean really). Both Edwards and Rielle denied the story vehemently, Edward affirmed in no uncertain terms his love for his wife Elizabeth, and strangely, another married man (a friend of Edwards) came forward and claimed that the child was HIS.
The National Enquirer is bulldog determination in spades, but would they have continued to pursue this story without some other agenda in mind? Could it be that somehow, in some frighteningly Clintonian fashion the Clintons had ascertained that Senator Obama WAS in fact considering John Edwards as his running mate?
What is most troubling to me is this continued climate of “gotcha” by which candidates are not judged by their proposed agenda, but rather are stalked by those whose primary aim is to put into question − rightly or not − the character of the candidate. And presumably this is all happening under the aegis of two people for whom character matters not at all. Make no mistake, for Bill and Hillary Clinton power is the ONLY agenda. And nothing and nobody can prevail should they impede their path to that goal!
Look, as far as I’m concerned, John Edwards is such a cipher that his fate matters not one whit to me. He’s a phony populist and defines the word “shallow” and “self-serving”. It is, rather, the continuing politics of personal destruction that troubles me greatly. When does it stop? And how do we make it stop sooner rather than later?
For our nation’s benefit, stopping this kind of trash is imperative. I'm also intrigued by the utter silence of the mainstream media on the entire subject - - not surprised, mind you, but nevertheless intrigued!
