Elizabeth Edwards Using GOP Talking Points Against Hillary Clinton

In a recent interview in Time Magazine Elizabeth Edwards said that Hillary Clinton is so divisive that she will energize the Republican vote. According to Elizabeth Edwards, “I want to be perfectly clear: I do not think the hatred against Hillary Clinton is justified. I don’t know where it comes from. I don’t begin to understand it. But you can’t pretend it doesn’t exist, and it will energize the Republican base. Their nominee won’t energize them, Bush won’t, but Hillary as the nominee will. It’s hard for John to talk about, but it’s the reality.” This sounds just like what Karl Rove was spouting on the Sunday talk shows about a week ago. Mrs. Edwards has been vocal lately, I would assume saying things that John can’t say. For instance she said that John Edwards would do more for women than Clinton would. At the time it even sounded like she said John was more of a woman than Hillary. She has also accused Barack Obama of being “holier than thou.” She addresses these and other comments in the Time interview by saying, “The media goes to this very engaging story about a legitimate woman candidate and a legitimate candidate with an African-American heritage, and that drives up their fund-raising numbers. Then the media folks say, ‘See, that proves we were right to focus on these two candidates.'” Then Mrs. Edwards follows up with, “It’s enough to make you tear your hair out.” Mrs. Edwards, some of your comments make Democrats want to tear their hair out.
