Edwards Outing Confirmed & Hillary Getting Pelosied
Now, Howling Latina is no fan of Hillary, but she's gotta give credit where credit is due. She was fresh faced, presidential and ready for the long haul. No hesitation; no missteps.
Obama, on the other hand, looked nervous and twitchy.
One note of interest was Edwards response when asked what his recent biggest mistake was. In referring to his vote authorizing Bush to invade Iraq, Edwards tellingly said that he wished he'd listened to his instinct.
Well, that just about confirms the earlier outing by Bob Shrum in his memoir as reported by the Associated Press via MSNBC last month.
Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards was skeptical about voting for the Iraq war resolution and was pushed into it by advisers looking out for his political future, according to an upcoming book by one of his former consultants.
Democratic strategist Bob Shrum writes in his memoir to be published in June that he regrets advising Edwards to give President Bush the authority to go to war in Iraq. He said if Edwards had followed his instincts instead of the advice of political professionals, he would have been a stronger presidential candidate in 2004.
