60 Minutes

Watch Elizabeth and John on 60 Minutes this Sunday night. Friends of the Edwards Family:

Elizabeth and John wanted me to tell you about a TV appearance that will be broadcast on Sunday night. They'll sit down for an interview on 60 Minutes with Katie Couric. The program is scheduled to air Sunday at 7:00 PM ET.

In some parts of the country, 60 Minutes may be delayed by the UNC basketball game. We hope you'll still tune in. You can be sure the Edwards family will be cheering on the Tar Heels like they always do.

Thanks again for your outpouring of support in the last few days. We'll be in touch this week with several important updates from the campaign trail.

Deputy Campaign Manager
John Edwards for President


I'm not a real fan of politicians that suck up to the AIPAC thugs but how these two are handling this crisis speaks volumes of their character.

Perhaps I can forgive their transgressions cow-towing to the Zionistas as a necessary evil in politics.

I tend to believe their is inherent goodness in what they are doing together, thrusting the issue of cancer to the forefront as something everyone at one time or another might have to deal with and they are not pulling any punches.

They show remarkable resilience and determination to deal with impossible odds, unlike the current WH occupant, they are candid and honest and determined, quite refreshing in these self absorbed times.

No other candidate has shown inner strength, Barack Obama has drive and ambition but his inner strength has yet to be tested, Hillary Clinton has certainly had her testing issues but tends to be more 'part of the problem' than the rest.

Personally I cannot stand Katie Couric and have not been able to stomach much of what she says and for that reason will probably not watch the show, still tossing it around though. Just admire the Edwards level-headed approach to problems, open and honest.

I really miss openness and honesty in politics and would like to see it return. If we could pry the country loose from the tyrannical grip of the corpoaratistas and their relentless pursuit of profits, we might enjoy some of that openness and honesty again.

There is hope.

Micki, from yesterday, I too am a NON-consumer and as such do not run out to the Mall to rack up my credit card debt.

I have stuff as old as the 70s that is still good, I'll wait till it disintegrates first.

My car, well thats a different story, old cars pollute severely as anyone that ever followed one can attest, so I have an 03 Monte Carlo that gets an honest 26mpg for my daily commute. I thought of and had a smaller car but with all the 1 ton diesel pickups acting like fools, bigger is safer.

Everyday I see giant Suburbans and Exploditions doing commuting and figure the Arabs in the ME are smiling big profitable smiles as a result.

Shopping for me is done on EBay where real Americans are selling American stuff and friendliness prevails, except clothing which I like to try on first.

Lightweight capitalist, non China supporter, Wally Mart hater, sums it up for me.

The Edwards are a very special couple. Their spirituality is so strong, it glows in that incredible aura around them.

Gonzales' fate was pretty much sealed when the documents indicating his knowledge of the firings were released Friday evening. (Another late-Friday release.)

The real meat will not be obtained though. Rove is too cunning.

Don't Expect the Truth From Karl Rove

Bush's top political aide has built his career on diverting and deceiving; he'd do the same under oath.

Carey said...

This is a portentous deal.

Big Oil Buys Berkely

The BP-UC Berkeley research deal pushes academic integrity aside for profit.


The fight against global warming is a fight between life and death. Politics is a menial subset.

Carey said...

Arianna Huffington makes an excellent practical point for Democratic candidates and their strategists.

AWOL in the Real Drug War

The war on drugs' war on minorities
Democratic presidential candidates crave the Latino and black vote, but ignore the Drug War's unfair toll on people of color.


Reconstituting our drug laws and sentences would also serve the needs of prison reform, by lowering the number of nonviolent inmates.

Check out Frank Rich today....

To see what Mr. Rove might be trying to cover up, look instead at what Ms. Lam was up to in May, just as the Justice Department e-mails indicate she was being earmarked for removal. Building on the Cunningham case, she was closing in on Dusty Foggo, the C.I.A.'s No. 3 official and the director of its daily operations. Mr. Foggo had been installed in this high intelligence position by Mr. Bush's handpicked successor to George Tenet as C.I.A. director, Porter Goss.

Ms. Lam's pursuit sped Mr. Foggo's abrupt resignation; Mr. Goss was out too after serving less than two years. Nine months later - just as Ms. Lam stepped down from her job in February - Mr. Foggo and a defense contractor who raised more than $100,000 for the 2004 Bush-Cheney campaign were indicted by a grand jury on 11 counts of conspiracy and money laundering in what The Washington Post called "one of the first criminal cases to reach into the C.I.A.'s clandestine operations in Europe and the Middle East." Because the allegations include the compromising of classified information that remains classified, we don't know the full extent of the damage to an agency and a nation at war.

Not yet anyway. "I'm not going to resign," Mr. Gonzales asserted last week as he played the minority card, rounding up Hispanic supporters to cheer his protestations of innocence. "I'm going to stay focused on protecting our kids." Actually, he's going to stay focused on protecting the president. Once he can no longer be useful in that role, it's a sure thing that like Scooter before him, Fredo will be tossed overboard.

Chuck Hagel says a lot depends on if bush stays the course on Iraq and ignores the will of the people, the Congress, and....

In the April edition of Esquire magazine, Chuck Hagel described Bush as someone who doesn't believe he's accountable to anyone. "He's not accountable anymore, which isn't totally true. You can impeach him, and before this is over, you might see calls for his impeachment. I don't know. It depends on how this goes," Hagel told the magazine.

Hagel also said to Esquire:

"We have clearly a situation where the president has lost the confidence of the American people in his war effort," Hagel said. "It is now time, going into the fifth year of that effort, for the Congress to step forward and be part of setting some boundaries and some conditions as to our involvement."

"This is not a monarchy," he added, referring to the possibility that some lawmakers may seek impeachment. "There are ways to deal with it. And I would hope the president understands that."

Things in the Administration will be reaching a crescendo unseen for a long time, since Nixon, Rover is psycho and will self destruct soon, Gonzo is a goner, Chainy will bail for health reasons, and move to Dubai, all these and more unexpected events lay ahead, leaves Chimpy all alone to be the king in his own world.(Disclaimer: events may or may not occur.)

Should be an interesting week anyway.

Well, Den, I don't blame you for not wanting to watch Katie Couric's interview with the Edwardses. She's not very credible.

I watched the last part of the inerview and was appalled at her unprofessional conduct...if she had said, "some say" one more time I would have jumped through the screen and throttled her!

Couric, as managing editor of CBS News, was trying to boost her ratings and nothing else, but in the process, she conducted an interview on a very important topic as though she worked for Fox News. She used the "some say" tactic to imply that the Edwardses were not being totally honest about why he was continuing his campaign. Disgusting.

Her line of questioning was "gotcha journalism" at its most finely hewned -- cutting blows!

Edward R. Murrow is rolling over in his grave.

Good night, Katie -- and you'll need all the luck you can get. Because you are a loser!

micki said...

You think she would have learned something since her own husband, Jay Monahan, died of colon cancer.

But, obviously she didn't.

micki said...

Oh, my husband just reminded me that Couric's older sister, Emily, died of pancreatic cancer circa 2001.

One more reason for her to show a little more understanding that people are different and meet challenges in different ways.
