Elizabeth Edwards Sets a Good Example

Here's to Elizabeth Edwards for speaking up and writing her book!

Her whole life has been made public and has been discussed all over the country by others, including John Edwards. I'm astonished at the critics who think that she should not weigh in on the subject herself.

She has done so in a manner that seems to me honest and dignified. I think it sets a better example for her kids than would hiding out from the whole world.

I could not agree with you more.

I once met Andr*w Y*ung (the one who originally took the blame for the baby), when he hired me to decorate the Edward's Christmas tree here in Raleigh, when they lived in DC. He told me that he thought John Edwards was the smartest person he had ever met - until he met Elizabeth.

John used to be tops in my book, but no more.

I think John's not exactly getting off easy.

A lot of public figures have done the same thing without such wide-reaching consequences. If I were him, this might cross my mind pretty often.
