Re: “The historic 2008 election—without John Edwards

As a Black American, living in the South, I want to say thank you to John and Elizabeth Edwards, because without the courage and patriotism they exhibited throughout the cold and snowy Iowa Primary there would not be a President Barack Obama. I think John Edwards has earned the U.S. Attorney General position.

Re: “The historic 2008 election—without John Edwards

Now that America's entire financial system has collapsed, we need people in government, like John and Elizabeth Edwards, who are smart and politically insightful. I hope President Barack Obama will use John and Elizabeth Edwards in his new Cabinet.

Rielle Trashes Elizabeth Edwards: 'She does not give off good energy'


Sunday, August 10th 2008, 11:09 PM

Rielle Hunter Has Apparently Taken Aim at Elizabeth Edwards.

Rielle Hunter compared John Edwards with Gandhi and went around trashing his cancer-stricken wife, it was reported Sunday.

A Newsweek writer who courted her as a source during Hunter's affair with the presidential candidate portrays Edwards' mistress as a charming but hugely indiscreet muddlehead who called reporters with New Age babble about Edwards' "old soul."

Asked about Elizabeth Edwards, who is unusually well-liked by political operatives and reporters, Hunter told reporter Jonathan Darman, "She does not give off good energy. ... I've only met her once.... She didn't make eye contact with me."

Darman wrote of meeting Hunter, a former yoga instructor hired by the Edwards campaign to shoot Web videos, at a campaign event in 2006 and later getting an e-mail from her, saying she had a story for him.

The story she wanted printed was that Edwards was "an old soul" with a "special energy" who could be a transformational leader like Mahatma Gandhi or the Martin Luther King Jr. if he used his heart more and his head less.

"Her purpose on this Earth, she said, was to help raise awareness about all this, to help the unenlightened become better reflections of their true, repressed selves," Darman wrote - underscoring yet again the candidate's stunning lack of judgment.

Darman said he asked, "Do you talk about this stuff with the candidate?"

Hunter's reply: "All the time."

Darman wrote a small story about Edwards hiring a woman he had met in a bar that appeared in the Dec. 25, 2006, issue of Newsweek.

When he saw her again a few weeks later, Hunter said she'd been fired by the campaign and blamed Elizabeth Edwards.

"'Someday,' Rielle said, 'the truth about her is going to come out,'" Darman wrote.

In the summer of 2007 - long after the affair was over, according to Edwards, and several months after Elizabeth Edwards got a grim cancer diagnosis that gave her only a few years to live -Hunter told Darman she was dating a mystery man she couldn't name.

Freelance writer Sarah Miller, describing meeting Hunter at a party in Los Angeles some years ago, said Hunter was scatter-brained but ambitious.

"I am going to be famous," she declared, according to Miller's account in the Los Angeles Times. "Rich and famous. I am going to meet a rich, powerful man."

Miller said Hunter, who talked of energies in the air, said she would accomplish this feat by "manifesting it."

In a bizarre case of six degrees of scandal separation, Hunter was married in the 1990s to Kip Hunter, son of the Colorado district attorney who famously led the failed JonBenet Ramsey murder investigation. They divorced in 1999.

In confessing his affair Friday, Edwards told ABC he doesn't think his political career is over, but his chances of being asked to reprise his 2004 veep run, serve in the cabinet or even address the Democratic convention are now less than zero.

Edwards, who scored more than 60 delegates and came in third behind Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in his bid for the White House, confirmed he won't even attend the Democratic convention in two weeks.

Mimi Hockman, Hunter's business partner, told reporters gathered outside her South Orange, N.J., house: "Don't waste your time. I'm contractually prohibited from talking to you."

Re: “The historic 2008 election—without John Edwards

Question: Why does Rielle Hunter not want a paternity test?

It could be that Rielle Hunter and Bob McGovern (Rielles Spiritual Healer) were working together. They tricked John into coming to the Beverly Hilton Hotel, and then attempted to blackmail him for money. The babys father could actually be Bob McGovern(whom Rielle has known for 15 years). Remember McGovern has always lived in California and that is where she went so have her child. As for the National Enquirer most people believe Rielle has always been their source, and the National Enqurer have been,for some time, making huge money payments to Hunter. By the way, Roger Altman, a big supporter of the Clintons, owns the National Enquierer.

However, it is more likely that Rielle(Real) Hunter (aka Lisa Druck) has only narrowed the list of possible fathers down to about 12 men and that is the reason she does not want a paternity test "now or in the future."

Re: “The historic 2008 election—without John Edwards

John Edwards has great insight into how our government works, and he dared to say it aloud.

It's no coincidence that our economy is only working for a few when Washington is only working for a few.

"Since 1996, the number of Washington lobbyists has tripled to 36,000...It's 60 lobbyists for every member of Congress-a lot of them are more powerful than the members.

Big insurance and pharmaceutical companies are writing our health care policies to ensure their own profits, not their customers' well being, while 45 million Americans go without health insurance and premiums skyrocket for everyone.

Big oil companies and electric utilities are writing our nation's energy policies. No surprise, they are blocking the development of clean renewable energies we so desperately need, both to protect the environment and to stimulate a new wave of economic growth.

Big financial interests are writing our economic policies " and while their profits are setting records, record numbers of families are going bankrupt and losing their homes.

Sallie Mae and other banks are blocking efforts to make college more affordable and student debts smaller. Cable and telecommunications companies are blocking efforts to make high-speed Internet universal and affordable. Accounting software companies are blocking efforts to make it easier for you to do your taxes.

Is it any wonder that so many hard-working, law-abiding middle class Americans feel as if the economic system is stacked against them? "
