According to ABC News' George Stephanopoulos, a bunch of staffers inside the only white man's political campaign in the history of space-time to run third behind a woman and a black guy were planning on hitting the emergency brake if it looked like their guy might win the Democratic nomination in 2008.
Not really because John Edwards was a white guy — which was just soooo 2004 — but because of that whole cheating on his wife thing — which was soooo 1999…
Basically, if it looked like Edwards was going to win the Democratic Party nomination, they were going to sabotage his campaign, several former Edwards' staffers have told me.
They said they were Democrats first, and if it looked like Edwards was going to become the nominee, they were going to bring down the campaign.
Thank god somebody was prepared to do the scuzzy thing if it came down to it. I guess that's what makes them good cogs in the D.C. machine.
