It’s a nasty, hot and humid day here in Philadelphia, and the heat wave continues for Hillary Clinton. She is getting hot air from not one, but two sources these days. One is the blowhard Michael Moore and the other is the blow-dried John Edwards.

Moore’s heat is in his new mockumentary, SiCKO, in which he concludes that Hillary became a sellout to the healthcare industry after her failed attempt at reform in her husband’s first term. Here’s a sample from Ben Smith’s blog on The Politico:

After her defeat in the first Clinton term, he says, she fell silent on the issue. And “for her silence, Hillary was rewarded. And she has been the second-largest recipient in the Senate of healthcare industry contributions.”

John Edwards on the other hand, is hammering Hillary on her comments in Sunday’s debate that the United States is a safer place since September 11th.

“Today, as a result of what George Bush has done, we have more terrorists and fewer allies,” Edwards said at a news conference. “There was no group called al-Qaida in Iraq before this president’s war in Iraq.”

Edwards apparently never mentioned Hil by name, but it’s obvious who he is targeting. The story goes on with Edwards also blasted the Republican candidates as “George Bush on Steroids” and predicted that any candidate who is close to Bush would lose.

The Republican response?

Giuliani campaign spokeswoman Katie Levinson said, “John Edwards’ track record of predicting election outcomes speaks for itself.”
