Press releases from the new book, "The Audacity To Win", claims that John Edwards offered a deal to Barack Obama to deliver southern white voters to Obama and then offered the same deal to Hillary Clinton, if either would name him as their VP candidate. That was when Hillary and Obama were running neck and neck during the close Democrat primary.
"Their necks would have been in a noose if either had accepted, because the news was already beginning to come out about Edwards and his pregnant girlfriend", stated one excerpt according to a source who has read an advanced copy.
Apparently, Obama had turned him down flat for they were hearing some rumors, but Hillary was still thinking the deal over.
"Instead of delivering the vote, Edwards would have a mistress delivering his love child", stated the source.
So the 2008 presidential winner may have been elected by one voter, Rielle Hunter!
Of course, that might not have been true if the networks had hid the Edwards affair, which they had already delayed in reporting, until Edwards came out and publicly announced the affair on television.
The book, The Audacity To Win by President Obama's campaign manager, David Plouffe, is due to hit the stands in the next few days.
If nothing else, it certainly shows how little one's vote counts and how much control the media and governments have on the people.
Meanwhile, Sarah Palin in her new book, stated that she also turned down Edwards, but for an entirely different proposition.
