- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
Good, theres being unfaithful then theres being a scumbag....edwards fits the latter category imo
⚧ C.T.L.W. You figure it out
My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
Also, to the person who asked if it was a hyperbole, yes it was. It was to prove a point but it seems to not to have helped anyone.
This is actually kind of an interesting case right?
I mean, what happened here is that two people associated with Edwards, gave money to a woman.
Defense claims it was only a gift.
Prosecutors claim it was actually a campaign donation since it was done by donor/supporters, and because it was inarguably to keep the woman out of the campaign, which is not disputed to be a help, to the campaign. And since it wasn't reported as such, it was an illegal "campaign contribution", not simply a gift from two other people, to this woman.
Will the arm of the law reach that far and yank him in? Seems like a stretch, but still a possibility.
Depends on what Bush lied about. If it was about boinking Condi, it's the same....irrelevant. If it was about bringing the nation to war...I think obviously it would have far different implications
