Petraeus, a divine intervention or political shaminigans?

10 Nov

Most people in high place whether storms caused by affairs, Bill Clinton, and Newt Gingrich, are but two such examples; General Petraeus decided to resign over his. Since the Petraeus revelation came just one week after the election, and an earlier exposure might have effected the election results, one must wonder; was this fortuitous, or what?

By taking the blame for the 9/11/2012 Benghazi fiasco, wittingly, or not, General Petraeus relieves Hillary (the likely 2016 Democratic Presidential candidate) from her “ma culpa!” And, the just re-elected President Obama from taking the blame by agreeing that the “Buck Stops,” with the President.

Petraeus has a enough name recognition, and in a high enough position to allow his assumption of responsibility to withstand any scrutiny. The question: Had the Petraeus revelation come a week earlier, would the US have elected a different Commander-in-Chief (C.i.C)?
