UPDATE Aug 11, 2008: Since Friday, Aug 8, all media have regaled us crowingly with a John Edwards scandal of his affair with Riel Hunter, hired, it seems, to film his campaign - after their relationship began sometime in 2006 or late 2005.
If you read my statements below concerning the ending of his campaign you'll see some remarks concerning money as being a possible cause of his dropping out. If that's true at all, turns out it's the money written to Hunter as checks for...services rendered for her John, her "love lips" - and a drawn-out Mars Return apparently had his motor revved and ready.
Yet somehow, "President Love Lips Edwards" doesn't roll trippingly off the tongue, does it? And a possible post for Edwards in a Dem White House is being ruled out on all sides as the DNC nears.

So please let me know if you find a power-loving politician who isn't wrapped up in himself and who doesn't use his love mojo whenever he can. Especially in these Viagra Days.

With retrograde Mars in Gemini rising, John Edwards plans to announce that he's dropping out of the presidential race at 1:00 pm est today in New Orleans and that he'll continue working with Habitat for Humanity.
(He's been having a triple Mars Return for months now...natal Mars at the "Bankrupcty" degree.)
With the main platform of his candidacy Poverty in America, I say that America will be poorer for his loss. Now we must depend on the rest of the elites--and we see where that's gotten us fo far.
Thanks, 'mainstream' media--another hit job against the common good accomplished.
Imho, Edwards is 'drooping' out with his natal Jupiter 7Gem27 rising at 1:00 pm in New Orleans. And since his Jupiter, planet of money and ideals is now being visited by tr Midas 7Gem16 Rx, this may be a money related decision. Yet there are some factors concerning his wife, Elizabeth, and her ongoing health problems but I have no more blogging time this morning.
My thoughts and prayers go with Mrs. Edwards, her husband and family and I hope John's drop-out foretells of future political office--perhaps another reason to elect Obama?
After all, at 1:00 pm est New Orleans, we see: Mercury/Neptune = MC: far-reaching plans and ideas.

Politics, as a practice, whatever its professions, has always been the systematic organisation of hatreds.
