I am very saddened by the news of the reoccurring cancer in Elizabeth Edwards. The fact that it is fatal, no cure, has to be the worst news a family can hear, especially, a husband.
I must say that Elizabeth is a very strong woman, a courageous fighter and a true mate to her husband.
She wants him to continue his dream to the White House as planned before they received this dreaded news. She does not want to be the reason that kept her husband from achieving his goals. This is a very brave and unselfish act on her part. I would call that true love.
Now, John, on the other hand, I’m sure is devastated by this news as well, but, yet, his dream of becoming President is still at the top of his list of priorities. Knowing his time will be shortened with his wife, he elects to travel away from her, campaigning for the Presidency. I would hope my husband would elect to spend every minute possible with me, making lasting memories that will have to last a lifetime. His being here for me, and making sure I know how much I am loved. Of course, I would insist on him continuing his dream for the White House, but secretly, I would hope that I came first in his life.
I cannot vote for a man who puts his dreams ahead of his wife at such a crucial time in her life. John Edwards have you no heart or no shame?
