...which is Yiddish for "If my grandmother had testicles she would be my grandfather", which is my response to Howard Wolfson for this little gem:

"I believe we would have won Iowa, and Clinton today would therefore have been the nominee," former Clinton Communications Director Howard Wolfson told ABCNews.com.

Clinton finished third in the Iowa caucuses barely behind Edwards in second place and Obama in first. The momentum of the insurgent Obama campaign beating two better-known candidates -- not to mention an African-American winning in such an overwhelmingly white state -- changed the dynamics of the race forever.

Obama won 37.6 per cent of the vote. Edwards won 29.7 per cent and Clinton won 29.5 per cent, according to results posted by the Iowa Democratic Party.

"Our voters and Edwards' voters were the same people," Wolfson said the Clinton polls showed. "They were older, pro-union. Not all, but maybe two-thirds of them would have been for us and we would have barely beaten Obama."

On what planet, Howard? Maybe you need to read Nate Silver's analysis of who the second choice of Iowa Edwards voters was. Hint: It wasn't your girl.

That asshole just won't take any blame for pissing on the caucuses that pushed Obama to the front of the pack. As an Edwards supporter, my problem with Hillary was always more about the sleazeball Wolfsons in her inner circle than her Iraq vote.
