You Won’t Believe Who Hillary Clinton’s First Pick For Attorney General Was

The New York Daily News reports that in 2008, Hillary Clinton’s first pick for Attorney General was none other than John Edwards (but that was under the condition he got out of the race and endorsed her in the 2008 Democratic primary).

Presidential campaign consultant David Axelrod, in his memoir “Believer: My Forty Years in Politics,” recalls a conversation with an Edwards emissary, who told him:

“Well between us, Hillary is offering attorney general, but what John really wants is to be on the ticket.”

‘”Hillary’s camp was desperate to escort him out the door,” Axelrod writes.
