John Edwards is so ... ewwww

Don't you like how politicians think they can pull an entire demographic out of their homes to vote for a candidate or issue? What are we, puppets?

Mr. Edwards, you can't even keep your johnson in your pants or do something as simple as telling the truth -- what makes you think you can sway Southern white voters one way or another?

John Edwards tried to cut a secret deal with President Barack Obama and perhaps Hillary Clinton during last year's primaries, offering his endorsement in exchange for the vice presidential nomination, according to a new book by Obama's campaign manager.

Edwards' camp made the offer shortly before the S.C. primary, when Obama and Clinton had split early contests and Edwards apparently believed he had "maximum leverage" to help deliver Southern white votes to whoever would give him the No.2 spot on the Democratic ticket, according to David Plouffe.

In "The Audacity to Win," Plouffe writes that Obama ruled out any deals. Obama went on to win the S.C. primary and got Edwards' endorsement in May 2008.
