I am one skeptic who is wondering whether Paula was a Democrat plant. She went after Patraeus, not the other way around. He is NOT hot, good-looking, or even sexy. What would make her want to be his lover, besides his power and status? And don’t forget, it was Paula’s husband who wrote the letter to the NYT alerting them to this story. Weird all the way around.
I think the democrats could have recruited a much more attractive “plant” — at least the Russians know what American men want...
“What would make her want to be his lover, besides his power and status?”
In the world where Petraeus and Broadwell live, power and status is all that matters. There is no stronger aphrodisiac.
“Power is the greatest aphrodisiac,” said Henry Kissinger.
I just read the reviews of All In on Amazon.com. One reviewer unbelievably said:
it seemed to border on pure hero worship and seemed to be nothing but the worst kind of suck-up writing that I almost gagged as I labored through the first few pages.
Paula’s husband wrote to the NYT? Could be that’s the reason the book went from some lowly ranking on Amazon’s bestseller list....#7,000 I heard, or maybe even as low as #70,000 to #111 over the weekend.
This whole thing stinks.
I also think that her hubby "leased" her out, thinking BIG BIG $$$$$ trust fund for their retirement. I think it is possible he was aware and willing for his wife to be this involved.
