Howard Wolfson isn't thinking about the welfare of John or Elizabeth Edwards, and certainly not of their children at this hour. What else would he be thinking of but himself? (And by proxy, of course, Hillary Clinton.)

This genius actually said publicly that the "cover-up" of the Edwards affair prevented Hillary Clinton from becoming the Democratic nominee. Whining, whining, whining - the guy sounds like a teenager:
"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.

"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."

Wolfson said the Clinton campaign was aware of the issue, but did not try to fan the flames.

"Any of the campaigns that would have tried to push that would have been burned by it," said Wolfson.

Ta-Nehisi Coates puts these jokers on full blast:
In its specifics, this claim is preposterous. Recall that Clinton lost Iowa by almost ten points. Recall that the Clinton campaign's biggest weakness was an utter ignorance of caucuses. Recall that after Edwards dropped out, Clinton lost eleven straight primaries. But in broader terms, the worst thing about the Clinton campaign is/was their complete inability to come to terms with the fact that they were supposed to lose. Not because Barack Obama is more of a liberal, not because he'd make a better president, not because Clinton supported the war, not because Bill Clinton is amoral, but because they ran a losing campaign...

This is, ultimately, why I'm glad Clinton lost. Accountability does not exist with these guys, and in that, they really are Bush-lite. They had millions of dollars, front-runner status and, allegedly, the greatest politician of our era stomping for them--and they got their asses handed to them. But they can't come to terms with it.

Wolfson's right at home on Fox News, isn't he?

When all else fails, a football analogy suits every situation, doesn't it?
This is like a quarterback throwing six interceptions and then complaining about the fans. Give me a break.

Sadly, the only way we'll get a break from these people is to elect Obama. Maybe not even then.

The Clintons, by their behavior the last few days (leading up to the convention, mind you) make it increasingly evident that they don't want Obama to win. (Maybe Hillary does, but we know her by now to be a tremendous actor, and hide malevolence beneath a matronly smile or self-indulgent oratory disguised as advocacy for Obama.) I'm not fooled, and you shouldn't be, either.

  • P.S.

  • By the way, Wolfson's actually wrong. If you were wondering.
