Wishing Elizabeth Edwards Well

As much as I cannot abide John Edwards the presidential candidate, I do wish his wife Elizabeth (and him, as her husband) only the best as she battles the recurrence of a cancer she thought had been eradicated. It's tempting to criticize Edwards for continuing his campaign, but I would assume that his wife supports his decision to do so, and therefore it's not my place to say anything but "play ball!"

BTW, none of the conservative blogs I've read regarding Elizabeth Edwards' cancer have had anything but kind words for the couple as they deal with this medical crisis. Compare that to those on the left who are always so quick to wish for the death of any conservative who faces serious health problems. Just something to think about...

I agree.

I believe it was Michael Barone on the Hugh Hewitt, saying that in his experience, the Edwards' staff had been one of the more polite during the 2004 campaign. I guess he was excepting the bloggers from a month or two ago.

Certainly, of the two Kerry/Edwards couples, Elizabeth is the most benevolent individual. And maybe despite political differences, maybe John Edwards is - deep-down - a decent person, who lost his way while becoming a trial lawyer.

Its really great to see that people understand its not about politics, its about a woman suffering from cancer that can not be cured only treated.

Edwards offered to suspend the campaign and his wife told him hell no..I wouldn't want to rob the world of you as the President. I know you aren't too hot on the idea of Edwards as Prez, but it was her idea not his...which frankly floored me..but she is a good woman. I watched their press conference, so I am not quoting directly, just paraphrasing what she said.
