Woman Linked to Petraeus Is a
West Point Graduate and
Lifelong High Achiever

The New York Times, by Michael D. Shear

Original Article

Paula Broadwell, whose affair with the nation’s C.I.A. director led to his resignation on Friday, was the valedictorian of her high school class and homecoming queen, a fitness champion at West Point with a graduate degree from Harvard, and a model for a machine gun manufacturer. Paula Broadwell, who wrote a biography of David H. Petraeus, moved into public view on Friday after an affair with Mr. Petraeus was uncovered. It may have been those qualities — and a string of achievements that began in her native North Dakota, where she was state student council president, an all-state

High achiever - but not a lick of common sense. Led around by her lady-parts.

Probably one of those people with high technical prowess but low, underdeveloped emotional intelligence. Common sense tells anyone you don´t betray your husband and kids and get into an affair like this just for the thrill of it.

Now her reputation as an objective historian is ruined. She can spend the rest of her life as tabloid fodder. Just ask Miss Lewinsky.

Looks like we already know more about her than the pretender-in-chief.

Mebbe, but judging from that video, she is fashion-challenged.

Some extraordinary investigative journalism we have in this country that within minutes of Patraus´ resignation the "other" party involved is identified. Does anyone else beside me find this interesting.
All this in light of little barry sotereo or whatever his name is still a ´blank´ on his history.

1. More coverage of him/her/this than of, not just Benghazi, but the slew of Muslim 9/11 attacks on the US this year.

2. In a few days we know 100 times more about her than we yet know about Stinky after years.

Not that that means anything. Right?

So sad... for all involved ... even America...

When first in DC, realized a woman could not be successful in marriage, children, and work... only two of three were possible...

Too bad she didn´t chose marriage and children...

#9, agree wholeheartedly.

This woman is a high achiever, and does have a fantastic resume, as others here have said. Too bad she is without honor or integrity (betraying her marital vows, and perhaps in trying to access the General´s e-mail).

MY WIFE’S LOVER

My wife is having an affair with a government executive. His role is to manage a project whose progress is seen worldwide as a demonstration of American leadership. (This might seem hyperbolic, but it is not an exaggeration.) I have met with him on several occasions, and he has been gracious. (I doubt if he is aware of my knowledge.) I have watched the affair intensify over the last year, and I have also benefited from his generosity. He is engaged in work that I am passionate about and is absolutely the right person for the job. I strongly feel that exposing the affair will create a major distraction that would adversely impact the success of an important effort. My issue: Should I acknowledge this affair and finally force closure? Should I suffer in silence for the next year or two for a project I feel must succeed? Should I be “true to my heart” and walk away from the entire miserable situation and put the episode behind me? NAME WITHHELD


The fact that you’re willing to accept your wife’s infidelity for some greater political good is beyond honorable. In fact, it’s so over-the-top honorable that I’m not sure I believe your motives are real. Part of me wonders why you’re even posing this question, particularly in a column that is printed in The New York Times.

It´s easy to see why they would be attracted to one another. It probably would have played itself out, but alas, Clinton and Obama has other plans. Sad end. Hope he decides to testify.

Remarkable #12, changes the whole perspective of this and deflates the conspiracy balloon. If the husband knew, everyone knew, did´t take the FBI to uncover this. To me its quite sad, really, that these successful, driven two people have never found love and loyalty. Nothing new, of course, just sad.

No, not led around by her "lady parts". How simplistic men are.

She was driven. An achiever. Petraeus was another achievement. Another trophy.

She was driven to an affair with him because she realized it was possible, that this powerful man could be had.

And when she was finished with him, she dumped him.

It´s interesting that she had a Twitter campaign going against Drudge´s contention that Romney might shoose Petraeus as his running mate.

She is a Democrat.

All of her accomplishments and yet, she has to stoop to the lowest of the low, going with a married man - if you admire the man, if you respect him, how can you actually be a party to destroying him? It seems more like a conquest thing, a notch on her belt.

Some way to celebrate their collective birthdays. They were both born on Nov 9th, 20 years apart. That would be a couple Scorpios attracted to each other´s drive and ambition without thinking of their spouse.

The oldest game in the world... a democrat entices an opposition hero, gets the dirt on him then dumps him. Obama holds his card over Petraeus head until the inevitable objections came... then making the man lie to congress.

High achiever, huh, with her pants down around her ankles underneath an office desk? This wanton, unscrupulous, careerist named Broad-well, gives whores a bad name. As for Petraeus, a preening careerist type barely intelligent enough to know a good idea when he sees one, but always too pretentious to offer attribution, we should expect this kind of boorish behavior out of him for he has always served the interests of the Boston-Beltway cocktail circuit rather than that of the Constitutional Republic.

Michelle Obama on the Move:
What Will She Do Next?
Parade Magazine, by Maggie Murphy and Lynn Sherr    Original Article

Nearly five years after moving into the White House, Michelle Obama could not look more at home. Posing in the formal Green Room, she appears both relaxed and invigorated, embracing the undefined (and undefinable) roles of Spouse in Chief, Role Model in Chief, and Mom in Chief. But it’s the last one that makes the first lady shine brightest of all. Put her in a room with kids—whether her own or the nation’s—and she glows.

Charlotte is an unlikely home for Paula Broadwell, a counterterrorism expert and world traveler who relished being embedded with combat troops in Afghanistan to research her biography of Gen. David Petraeus. But Broadwell moved here more than three years ago with her husband, Scott, a radiologist, and their two young sons, Landon and Lucien, because it was her husband’s turn to pick. “We made an agreement when we first got married that every other move would be the other person’s,” she told the Observer in an interview earlier this year. While based in Charlotte, she launched a promotional tour

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
