55. I do have a couple of questions for Elizabeth
Edited on Sat Aug-09-08 06:58 AM by Apollo11
We now know that Elizabeth knew about this in 2006, and still told John that she would support him making another run to be the Democratic nominee for President.

Of course John is primarily responsible for his own actions, but they both knew that if he succeeded in winning the nomination, and if the facts if his affair ever came out, it would seriously damage the Democratic Party's chances in November 2008.

Despite her serious health issues, Elizabeth worked hard on John's behalf, even to the extent of publicly criticizing other candidates - notably Hillary Clinton.

"In my opinion, the candidate who's best for women in this race is my husband."

"I think one of the things that make me so completely comfortable with this is that keeping that door open to women is actually more a policy of John's than Hillary's."

I cannot think of anyone other that Elizabeth Edwards who seriously questioned the idea that Hillary's candidacy - and her bid to win the nomination - represented a major step forward for women in America.

... and all the while she was covering up for her sleazebag husband ...
