Welcome to the last part of this long Episode, Part 4; the Assassination of two presidential hopefuls who were not well liked by the Democractic Establishment; out of all the parts produced this one is my least favorite (to be honest), I didn't have the time to conduct the research I wanted to. Nonetheless the outcome was good enough to be published. In hindsight I should have included Howard Dean also! I hope you enjoy.

No there was never a President Spitzer or a President Edwards however there should have been. In 2004 John Edwards was more charismatic; more in touch with the rage people were feeling against the Bush Administration and truthfully more willing to simplify complex arguments into digestible portions for those people who have a wasp’s attention span. However Kerry was more favored by the establishment simply because he wasn’t Edwards or any other candidate that might not tow the newly empowered Democratic Leadership Council’s line. Thus his fate was sealed. By 2008 Edwards had moderated many of his stances (moderated meaning he had become more financially conservative and less politically progressive, although on the stage with Barack and Hillary he seemed like a Communist). This was untrue for New York States Governor Elliot Spitzer who had continued his crusade against corruption and shady dealings involving business men and government officials. He hadn’t moderated his stances, he had increasingly become more opposed to those forces wanting him to stagnate his progressivism (or become more conservative as some Orwellian businessmen might say) resulting in almost radically different proposals to everything the Republican/ Conservative dominated legislator offered the public. In the midst of all this he made one fatal flaw, he did what millions of American men are doing tonight including some with other men and others who are congressional representatives; he employed a high priced hooker to take care of his sexual and emotional needs. When this was disclosed he stepped down. This podcast presents to you the reality between these two men’s fall from grace, including looking at how the Dems assassinated the characters of both men in order to scum up their public images. Frankly I don’t care if Spitzer has some woman – who choose to pursue that line of work – ride him till he screams, nor do I care that Edwards had an affair that resulted in a child; both men will have to face their wives (rest in peace Ms. Edwards) what I have always wondered was, what those things had to do with them performing their jobs. Apparently, if Bill Clinton is any indication, it helps them perform better; so lets decree for every President who so desires (so long as their wives don’t kill them) can have all the sex they want with as many prostitutes as they can handle. Enjoy!
