Sour Grapes Takes New, Speculative Turn

John_Edwards_NYCasdf.jpgYou gotta love that, despite finally conceding the nomination to Barack Obama and, allegedly, supporting him in his bid to become the Prez, Hillary Clinton — or at least her former Communications Director — is now suggesting that, had the national media pursued the John Edwards’ affair, Clinton would’ve won the nomination.

“I believe we would have won Iowa, and Clinton today would therefore have been the nominee,” former Clinton Communications Director Howard Wolfson told ABCNews.com.
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.
Obama won 37.6 per cent of the vote. Edwards won 29.7 per cent and Clinton won 29.5 per cent, according to results posted by the Iowa Democratic Party.
“Our voters and Edwards’ voters were the same people,” Wolfson said the Clinton polls showed. “They were older, pro-union. Not all, but maybe two-thirds of them would have been for us and we would have barely beaten Obama.”

The woman just won’t take the blame, will she? Has she yet repudiated these comments? And does Edwards’ penis change the ultimate outcome? No. But it’s nice to see her and her ilk try to take down the Dems in furtherance of her own goddamn ego. So, let’s all unite behind Obama, the “technical” winner of the nomination.

Of course, if it were true, that should be enough to get Edwards a slot on the ticket! His father worked in a mill, after all. And probably had the good sense to keep his dick in his pants.

Eh, I'd say it isn't Hillary refusing to "take the blame." I'd say it's someone attempting to make excuses for failing to do what he was hired to do. And does she have to repudiate all comments made on the matter by everyone who worked for her? If I recall correctly, she asked all of her supporters to back Obama, not "take down the Dems in furtherance of her own ego." Give it a rest, Dustin. Obama's the nominee, nearly all former Hillary supporters are going to vote for him, and looking for any excuse to harp about Hillary makes Obama supporters look more petty than Hillary or the vast majority of her supporters. Let's all just play nice.
