    so easily jump to the worst conclusions about Obama?  I lay you odds that Edwards, if he hasn't met with Powell would like to and not because he thinks Powell is so great but because Powell has front seat experience in this war.

      until DL, in his perceived need to defend Obama, claimed Edwards sought out Kemp for foreign policy advice, or so he implied.

      You are willing to lay odds?  Come on, that's just silly.  Why would you want to make a bet about something you obviously have no clue about?

      This is all about Obama, not Edwards, try as you might to spin it differently.

      What it does show is a double standard on your part, however, as many seem to have such a problem with Edwards, yet not so much with Powell, an architect of the war.

      That maybe since Powell has a huge axe to grind toward Cheney, Rummy and the rest of the cabal that he can offer some insight and info about the clusterfuck that is the current Bush administration?

      just thinking.

      Keep you friends close and enemies closer they say. They forgot to keep Powell close and made an enemy out of him...so Ka-Ching !!! Am I the only one that sees a certain opportunity for Obama to gather some  dirt on Bushy and his pals?
