There's a buzz out there criticizing Elizabeth Edwards for a variety of things related to Johnny Reid Edward's detestable conduct. Some criticism attacks her character for not having the courage to leave him to a wide range of could have-should have-would have's. Come on now!!
Who is in her shoes? Cancer, a rat of a husband, on-going grief from a dead son, Elizabeth Edwards has much to contend with. Detest her politics all you like. Criticize her on what she says, but HANDS OFF her personal struggles.
Let's make sure the folks who don't like what's going on out there in left field don't resort to the kind of garbage that is routine on MoveOn.org, The Huffington Post, and The Daily KOS. We can do better!!!
This is NOT an appeal to political correctness. It's an appeal to basic human decency.
