Edwards had told Kerry he was going to share a story with him that he’d never told anyone else — that after his son Wade had been killed, he climbed onto the slab at the funeral home, laid there and hugged his body, and promised that he’d do all he could to make life better for people, to live up to Wade’s ideals of service. Kerry was stunned, not moved, because, as he told me later, Edwards had recounted the same exact story to him, almost in the exact same words, a year or two before — and with the same preface, that he’d never shared the memory with anyone else.But I encourage Clinton to go right ahead and make the same prudent judgment John Kerry did. After all, she and Edwards have so much in common. Their investment savvy aside, they have to be the most duped duo in the history of presidential politics. After all, Hill was apparently duped for years by her philandering husband, and they were both duped into voting for the war; she by President Bush and he by Shrum.
And Edwards, it seems, was further duped by Fortress Investment Group; so much so, that he was prompted to pompously declare in a tone worth of Mrs. Helmsley, “I will not have my family’s money involved in these firms that are foreclosing on people in New Orleans.” Leona Helmsley ended up in the Big House for such superciliousness, but in the case of Clinton and Edwards, it may lead them to the White House.

Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
