Elizabeth Edwards Resents Success of Women, Blacks

Elizabeth Edwards says of her husband John, "We can't make John black, we can't make him a woman. Those things get you a lot of press, worth a certain amount of fundraising dollars."

Here's a message to John Edwards: Even if you were Black, you wouldn't be Barack Obama. Even if you were a woman, you still would be no match for Hillary Clinton!

I didn't know that being a woman or being Black were automatic tickets to press attention and campaign contributions. I thought it took being a compelling candidate with a great message and a great organization. But Elizabeth Edwards is saying that only gender and color are winning for Clinton and Obama the attention and donations they have received.

Why have we gone 43 consecutive presidential white male presidential terms without any Black or women taking advantage of The Edwards Insight?

With the best candidates being the woman and the Black man this time around, the tables are turned in the presidential race, and that's making Elizabeth Edwards envious, angry, bitter and resentful.

If Hillary and Obama had known that being a woman and being Black were such a cash cow, they probably would have run for president years ago, long before we went 43 consecutive terms without a single woman or Black person in the Oval Office. But this fact of politics has been kept such a secret that only Elizabeth Edwards believes that it's true.
