Ben Smith at Politico has a rather strange piece today about Andrew Young, John Edward’s “special assistant” who once covered up for all of Edward’s baby mama drama.
Smith hints heavily at Andrew Young having some sort of a bizarre unrequited metrosexual man crush on Edwards.
Young sometimes described himself as Edwards’s “special assistant” and dreamed of serving in an Edwards White House. Other aides, with a combination of disgust — and, perhaps, a bit of envy — referred to him as Edwards’s “personal servant,” or worse, Edwards’s “butt boy.” The relationship was so intense, at least on Young’s side, that it generated friction between him and Elizabeth Edwards. But if Elizabeth and John Edwards sometimes seemed to feel that Young — at 40 no longer an eager kid, with three children of his own — had gotten too close, there was no getting rid of him. He had made himself indispensable.
“He believed that Edwards was the next Kennedy,” said a person who was close to Young. “It’s not enough to say that he idolized the guy — there’s something deeper and weirder than that.”
Oh and it goes on like that for about 4 pages. Now here is the kicker, a scorned Andrew Young is now peddling a tell-all book and claims to be in possession of a videotape featuring John Edwards and Rielle Hunter.
More and more with each passing day, Hillary Clinton is looking like she would have been the best one the Democrats had to pick from.
