This is unbelievable, and really, friggin’ laughable.  Howard Wolfson, Hillary Clinton’s former campaign communications director, is saying that his girl would have won the nomination if Sen. John Edwards’ infidelity had been exposed sooner.  I don’t know about y’all, but this gets a real big ROFLMAO from me:

Sen. Hillary Clinton would be the Democratic presidential nominee if John Edwards had been caught in his lie about an extramarital affair and forced out of the race last year, insists a top Clinton campaign aide, making a charge that could exacerbate previously existing tensions between the camps of Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama.

“I believe we would have won Iowa, and Clinton today would therefore have been the nominee,” former Clinton Communications Director Howard Wolfson told

Clinton finished third in the Iowa caucuses barely behind Edwards in second place and Obama in first. The momentum of the insurgent Obama campaign beating two better-known candidates — not to mention an African-American winning in such an overwhelmingly white state — changed the dynamics of the race forever.

Now, Howard, I know you want to blame somebody, but if anyone in your camp should take the blame for losing, it’s your boss, Senator Clinton, and her decision to engage in dogwhistle politics, instead of sticking to the issues.  Her attacks on Obama, not to mention the fact that she didn’t reign in Wild Bill when he decided to go off his meds and shoot off at the mouth. Those factors are what cost her the primary. Now since the article infers that your camp knew about Edwards’ infidelity, why didn’t you guys leak it to the press when you found out?

I know; y’all thought it would be easier to drive Obama from the race instead of Edwards.  And you got straight played, cause Edwards wound up voluntarily dropping from the race because Obama never had any doubts he was going to lose any of the caucuses.  Especially after Iowa.

Senator Clinton seems to have gotten over her loss (or she’s clocked Bill enough times to get all that anger out).  According to James Carville, so should YOU.  But this really sounds like your camp is trying to stir shyt up as an entree into the convention in Denver.  Here’s a news flash for ya – these attempts are going to blow up in your girl’s face just like the racial politicking, “Willie Horton-ization” of Obama did.

If you want proof that some people aren’t being scared by, and voting because of race, go ask Nikki Tinker, who just got her ass handed to her by Black voters in Memphis by an 80% margin; people who are getting tired of people running for office based on race and nothing else. She sunk to new lows when she compared Steve Cohen, a White Jew, to fraternizing with the Klan.

The days of dogwhistle politics are now being seen as “Hail Mary” passes that don’t get caught in the end zone anymore.  Find another thing to speculate on if you must; but, hey, don’t let me stop you from another career… as a Comedian…LOL
