An almost overwhelming amount of jaw jacking and useless speculation as of late has been forwarded about the possibility of “what could have been” had “The North Carolina Cad” been honest about his Bill Clinton/Gary Hartpence escapades with another Monica Lewinsky/Donna Rice wanna-be, only this particular coquette ended up inconveniently gravid.. Edwards should have considered taking up Bill’s proclivity towards utilizing his mistresses as humidors and things might have “turned out differently”.. Then again, speculation and wondering if “things would have turned out differently” is what this last few days “news” has been about.
Former Hillary communications director Howard Wolfson has been burning up the airwaves, head manning the “prophesy flotilla” saying for example that, “We would have won Iowa..Clinton today would therefore have been the nominee”. He also added that, “the lie certainly (would have) had an impact on the election.” For those enchanted by the mysticism of Obama-bonics, that translates to the “hypothesis of hope” or the “conjecture of change”.
Wolfson and others have guessed that had the National Enquirer’s story broken last October when it was first brought to light, that it would have magically made an appreciable difference in the final results on the Democratic side of the ledger. He says that he is “mystified” as to why the national media failed to pursue this with the enthusiasm that it has for the allegations of other candidates’ affairs.
I have just a few guesses for Howard on these particular points.. First, please consider the “source” of the story and its surrounding allegations and the source’s relation or resemblance to the “national media.”. If the National Enquirer didn’t spend so much time “reporting” on the latest Elvis sightings, the most recent alien abductions from Alabama trailer parks and the man from Georgia who has three heads, it is quite possible that their attempts at “hard journalism” might be taken a bit more seriously.
Second, the Clinton clan should have also fudged up a story claiming that Edwards was also just about to switch to the Republican Party. That way, if John Edwards had been a Republican who might have done something as incredibly heinous such as touch someone’s foot in a rest room stall or send emails to congressional pages, (as opposed to cheating on a wife who was and still is battling cancer, lie about it, deny your love child that you were visiting in a hotel and then deny it again..) well the cooperative fifth columnists of the fourth estate would have done all the work that the Clinton campaign had deemed necessary.
Just to make things appropriately linear, the Gary Hart affair of 1987, which precipitated his political demise, was pushed and published by the Enquirer. Howard Wolfson just doesn’t seem to realize that the National Enquirer gets around to “hard journalism” every twenty years or so..
Wolfson, is referring to the numbers alone from the Iowa voting. In Iowa, Obama took 37.6 per cent, Edwards took 29.7 per cent and Clinton, who by this time had been fine tuning her festival of errors for countless months, took 29.5 per cent. By looking at the numbers and nothing else, Wolfson may be correct but he is leaving out a hugely undeniable factor..
Even if Clinton would have taken Iowa, in order for his wishful thinking to have had even the remotest possibility of coming to fruition, the Clinton campaign, or the “bunglers brigade” would have had to have done EVERYTHING from that point forward, the polar opposite from what they actually did. In my opinion, never in the annuls of Democratic politics has someone with so much momentum and so much fanfare, done such a hideous hara-kiri in front of God and everybody..
She did not manage this all by herself, those employed to help and guide her, bear a considerable amount of the responsibility and that includes her “insignificant other” whose complexion had a tendency to go from alabaster white to crimson red at the drop of a question. However, a candidate that told the world that she had “thirty five years of experience” should have been able to see that “The Good Ship Lolli Pop-pycock” began taking on water the moment that it began to steam away from the Democratic docks..
When a Wolfson or any other former Clinton henchman or woman has this much exposure so long after the campaign has been “suspended” based upon their silly speculations, there is only one logical conclusion that you can draw. Attention Obama wonks: This Clinton isn’t giving up and her minions are still checking in with the commandants stationed at the Arkansas double wide, otherwise known as the Clinton “library”, for their marching orders. Denial is a great big river in Africa and the morose merchant marine ships of the Clinton camp are all clogging the tributaries and setting up their depth charges and blockades just in case things “change”.
Even the venerable ABC News reports that the Clinton camp sees the Obama victory as being won by ” a sexist media and (the) Democratic establishment.” The Democratic “separatist movement”, an updated and streamlined version of the one from the 1860’s, has adapted a liberal cosmology that cannot help but to feed upon itself. The left has succeeded in separating the races, the genders and any other “group” that it can categorize and name, so they have no one else to consume except each other. When the possession of power is the prize, the Clinton blitzkrieg has no concerns for the casualties of war, intended or unintended, faux friend or foe.. With the Clintons, anything or anyone can and will be sacrificed so long as the brass ring is captured by or returned to Hillary the hegemonist..
In the end, Edwards will land on his feet back in North Carolina. I am sure that there is an overwhelming need for attorneys with the ability to “channell” infants with cerebral palsy whilst hoodwinking backwater juries. If not, he can just don a sparkly outfit and a spiffy pointed wizards cap, get an 800 number where he can make the easy transition to the “mystical psychic powers” ruse. All of the public speculation by Howard Wolfson and the rest of the Clinton brigands would probably be better served if they would spend more time privately postulating what might have happened had they and all of their responsible subordinates actually run their campaign into the winners circle as opposed to into the ground..
