WASHINGTON--The secret did not keep for long, but secret it was--Barack Obama flew to Chapel Hill, N.C. on Sunday to meet with John and Elizabeth Edwards about an endorsement. WTVD in Raleigh-Durham has a picture of Obama and Edward embracing, taken from their chopper and a tick-tock on when Obama landed Sunday. LINK

Hillary Rodham Clinton had her own secret meeting with the Edwards earlier at their home more than a week ago. I'm told by an Edwards source that Elizabeth warmed up to Clinton when they got together.

"Senator Obama visited this morning with John and Elizabeth Edwards at their home in Chapel Hill to discuss the state of the campaign and the pressing issues facing American families," Obama spokesman Bill Burton said in a statement.

It has to be difficult for Obama being male and running again a femal. He has to be extremely when attacking or counter attacking

My concern about this whole thing is the 'addiction" factor

Bill Clinton, according to Hillary, has a sexual addiction. And, according to her, it is under control and will not happend on her watch
However, as any recovering person will tell you, and there are millions of us out there, a part of the addictions process is the making of amends
Bill Clinton was the Cheif, the Big cheese. He was Monica's boss. Monica was a lowly intern, young, much the same as Chelsea Clinton
Bill Clinton has sex with the young lady and then lied.

Hillary, despite her knowledge of hs past infidelties, went on National television to support his lies

In doind so, they both attempted to discredit this woman

Having found out the truth, did Hillary then apologize or make amends to Monica
No. In fact, had it not been for the fact that the young lady was nasty enough to hang the soiled dress in her closet, to this day, they would have both stuck to their lies
Untreated addictions lead to relapse

Interesting, John McCains wife reports an addiction. Is there any evidence of trteatment. Probably not.

They hammer home Michelle Obama's comment about feeling proud for the first time
I would bet that McCain's wife feels quite proud, mostly dues to her millions which allow her to do whatever she feels like doing, including support an addiction
Hillary recently loaned her campaign a cool $5M from her personal discretionary money. Wasn't she just swamped in legal bills eight years ago
Everyone would like to make this race about gender/color

It is reall about power and the misuse of power
The rich keep getting richer

The sick keep getting sicker
