Can we rename this group, the 'Elizabeth Edwards Supporters Group'?
Just asking. She's the one I support. I think she deserves her own group on the DU after everything she has been through. I can't imagine what it's been like to be betrayed by so many people and then have your reactions to this betrayal so highly scrutinized.

God Bless Elizabeth, Cate, Emma Claire and Jack.

And God Bless little Quinn.

1. I can ask Skinner
but I want to ensure that we don't lose the content as a result of a name change.

3. It would be nice to know if others feel the same
I wrote to Skinner about the technical issues concerning the renaming of this forum. I probably won't hear back this weekend since Skinner is busy with his family.

4. I'd go for it too.
It would be a big boost to her, to counteract all the ugliness coming out. She was the heart and soul of her husband's life-- and his best friend, no doubt. His best real friend.

To real friends. :toast:

6. Thanks for the replies in support of this idea.
I just think it would be a good step forward and a way to show Elizabeth that she still has our support.

7. Great idea, Inspired.
The more visibility of support for her in particular, the better.

8. Good idea. I am rather sick of the JRE trashing.
Elizabeth doesn't deserve all of the garbage heaped upon her by the media.

9. Well, if we can get a forum with her name on it instead of John's, that might be possible.
I'm NOT a John Edwards supporter (that ship sailed a long time ago) and I feel like I have no place to show Elizabeth the support I have for her.

11. I am for it
If she hadn't gotten the recurrence of cancer, she was always my choice for president. She is one heck of a classy lady.

12. Sorry as I am for what Elizabeth has gone though, it doesn't matter what we call this Forum.
It was always the Edwards message that mattered and not either of the Edwards themselves.It wasn't about them.If we really want to show support for Elizabeth, it would be best to support those causes she believes in, like real and meaningful HCR!Bless the family and I hope little Quinn is removed from Hunter and gets a good home.JNHO>

13. I agree totally with that.
It was never about the personalities but the message, which still needs to be heard.

15. This is a good thing.
Elizabeth Edwards probably wants privacy right now, but renaming the forum is a good way to show support. I value her ideas on important issues, and hope she knows she still has a lot of supporters.
