Bernie Mac is dead

Long live Bernie Mac:

Two questions

1) How did I never know that Alexander Hamilton had an affair? I read *a ton* of history novels about that period of American history.

2) Steven Clemons argues:
I wish John Edwards had done what Alexander Hamilton had done in a similar situation -- as I wrote last October -- but not to be. Sad.
How is what Alexander Hamilton did any better? Hamilton confessed the affair to a couple of government insiders, who then told Thomas Jefferson, who leaked it to the press. A few years later, a member of the press confronted Hamilton with love letters to Maria, Hamilton finally admitted the affair and deny corruption. That sounds exactly like what John Edwards did.

John McCain can have Lieberman

I'm sure picking him to run with you will go over so well with your base. After all, this was a man so doctrinal Democrat that he was chosen to be run as Vice President in 2000.

In fact, this is mentioned in the article:
“Conservatives would be pissed as hell – I think you would have a revolt, but sometimes John does what John wants to do,” the McCain adviser said.
Yes, yes, they would - it hasn't been so long ago that he was Sen. Juan McCain.
