Fighting More Than One Fight At A Time
Only a few weeks ago, John and Elizabeth Edwards appeared together at a news conference to announce that even though Elizabeth's breast cancer had returned, they would not stop the campaign on the quest for John to win the Democratic nomination for President. However, Elizabeth has gotten a lot of bad press for making this decision. People feel that the focus should be on her treatment and not on her husband's campaign. On friday, she appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show explaining her reasons for staying the course. She should be praised for her devotion to her husband and her belief in him. She still will get all the treatment recommended by her physicians, but she would rather spend her time making herself useful to her husband than to stay home and feel sorry for herself.
