I would never have believed it. I have been hearing for some time that Obama was buying Super Delegates by enticing them with his data base. What danger was in that for me? I never registered at Obama’s site, never donated to him.
This I did not foresee. The VERY SAME DAY Edwards endorsed Obama, I get a begging letter asking me to donate to his scholarship foundation. Now just where would Edwards have gotten my e-mail information???
I have been e-mailing the DNC and Howard Dean every time they send me a begging letter, telling them to count all the votes and quit trying to throw the election before they ask me for money.
So there is the answer- Edwards in all probability got my e-mail from the DNC.
The question now is- did the DNC, Dean and Brazile offer the data base to Edwards in exchange for his endorsement of their golden idol??? I have come to my own conclusion; I leave you to to draw your own.
Here is the e-mail from Edwards and my response- notice the e-mail comes from John Edwards for President. HMMM- I thought he withdrew? And is that legal? Is he using campaign funds to promote this cause, worthy though it might be? Notice also, if you will, the line “But change can only come with your help.” Now where oh where have I heard that word before? I am sure Uppity Woman can help us out with the answers, she is most intelligent!
I find it absolutely amazing that I have never received an e-mail from you until today- the day you endorsed a completely unelectable, anti-American, terrorist loving, inexperienced candidate for the most powerful position in the world.
Let me ask you the following sir- Are you not disturbed by Obama’s 8 year working relationship with Ayers? Do you REALLY believe Obama is innocent of Wright’s beliefs? (I do not, I think he knew all along about black liberation theology- he admits to it in his book. Did you read that?) Are you so deluded by the media that you think women will fall in line and vote for this misogynist? I won’t.
I have voted Democratic all my very long life. If Obama is nominated, I will, for the first time ever, vote Republican for President. I survived Reagan and both the Bush terms. I can survive McCain especially since I know John McCain loves our country. (I am sure Obama does not love anything but himself.)
You have greatly disappointed me Mr. Edwards. The timing of this e-mail gives me reason to believe a back room money deal was made giving you access to data bases.
Please remove me from your data base.
Oh, and your candidate has plenty of money and wealthy friends-perhaps Sen. Obama can ask Auchi, Kahlidhi, Ayers or Rezko for donations to your scholarship program. I have to save up to pay the global poverty tax your candidate is trying to pass.

I want to begin by thanking each of you for all of your support and commitment over the last year. It has meant so much to Elizabeth and me. We have been very busy since January working on the causes that got us into the campaign in the first place — helping to build the One America we all believe in.
You may have heard me talk about one of those programs called College for Everyone — a scholarship pilot project that Elizabeth and I started a few years ago in Greene County, North Carolina.
The program is based on a simple promise to students: make good grades, work at least 10 hours a week, and stay out of trouble — and the program will help pay for your first year of college. Since we launched this effort in 2005, the percentage of Greene County high school graduates attending college has increased from 54 percent to 74 percent.
As I write you, 165 high school seniors in Greene County are set to graduate in May and 94% have been accepted into N.C. colleges and universities. Most of these young people are doing just what many of us did — sitting around the kitchen table with their parents, wondering how they will pay for tuition.
Every parent wants to give their child the opportunity that comes with a college education. But for too many American families, the dream of a college degree is just that — a dream. Now, I need your help to make the dream of a college education a reality for some hard-working students in rural Greene County.
That’s why I need your help today — with a tax-deductible donation of $10, $25, $50 or $75, whatever you can afford — to bring us one step closer to our goal of College for Everyone. By contributing now, you will help fulfill the college dreams of deserving students in Greene County and show the world that if we work together on big and important issues, change is possible.
But change can only come with your help. Please contribute now and bring us closer to building One America where every child has the opportunity to go as far as his or her talents and hard work will take them.
P.S. Contributions made by Friday go towards scholarships for the students graduating in May. Please respond today.
