Clinton Adviser Blames Edwards for Her Nomination Loss

"Hillary Clinton’s former campaign communications director on Monday said if John Edwards had been honest about his affair or if the news were public before the Iowa caucuses in January, the New York senator could have been the next presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, not Barack Obama.

Howard Wolfson told FOX News on Monday that playing the what-if game doesn’t change the outcome. Still, he said he would like to have had the information earlier about Edwards’ affair with aspiring producer Rielle Hunter.

“My gut tells me that had Senator Edwards dropped out of the race or had this become public prior to Iowa that we would have done better in Iowa,” said Wolfson, whose candidate placed a close third behind Edwards in the Jan. 3 caucuses. “At the end of the day you can play the what-if game endlessly, and you can play both ways you know. If Senator Clinton hadn’t gotten teary eyed in New Hampshire I think Senator Obama would have won New Hampshire and he would have been the nominee in January. So there are a thousand different ways you can play the what-if game but I do believe that the result would have been different had this become public a year ago.”

So if Lover Lips had admitted to being as sleazy as Hillary's husband, then folks would have been more apt to vote for Hillary.
