    I am glad to see that Elizabeth looks very well and radiant today on the Today Show. Thank you Elizabeth for speaking out about the Democractic healthcare plans, and specifically about Sen. Clinton's plan that offers universal health care to all Americans. Good luck with your treaments.

    Cant really support her views. She is going to support the person who makes her husband a Vice President.

    She's the kind of woman the Dems should have found for the ticket, not Hillary. Honest, warm, uncalculating, down to earth, self effacing and with grace under pressure when overcoming life's travails.

  11. Keeping It Real!

    I like Elizabeth Edwards very much but I believe the only reason that she and her husband has come out now is to get the spot light back in an effort to help Hillary Clinton. The reason they didn't do it sooner was because they know that their followers will wonder if John Edwards really was sincere in all that he was touting on the stump. If anyone can recall he blasted Hillary several times by saying that she is a big reason or rather example of what's wrong with Washington. He also compared her several times with being in lock and step with the lobbist. He made even harsher statements. I believe the Edwards have struck a deal with the Clintons. John Edwards is very ambitous and probably is more concerned about his own political future. Remember in the debates how he stated more than once that he and Obama were the only two change agents in the race. He stated specifically that Hillary was a Washington insider and the status quo. I am not fooled by the Edwards although I do like them this sudden media blitz is to make health care an issue again so that they can use that as a reason to endorse Hillary. Edwards knows that if they are to be of any help to Hillary than they have to come out now. Obama is not going to wheel and deal with anyone to get their endorsement. Obama don't want to be indebted to anyone when he gets in office. Just think about my opinion with an open mind and you will see that what I say has real logic to it. Obama is what's best for this country because you cannot bring about a real change with the same old same old. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

    Sure Edwards would step up and support Obama. That would be a killer team. They may not agree on everything, but I do believe they could work through it all and come up with one heck of a platform to run on and kick McCain back to his chair as a Senator.

    I hope that John Edwards does not endorse anyone until after all the primaries are over.

    elizabeth, please tell your husband to run with obama as VP. america needs the leadership, excitement, level-headedness, and political goals of obama/edwards. it's going to take some very strong and committed people to drag us out of the mess the repubs have gotten us into the last 7 years!

    Great woman! She deserves the honour. John Edwards is a major key in saving the almost certain defeat of the Party if the Clinton-Obama thing continues any longer. Mr. Edwards should endorse Sen. Obama who now has a clear lead. Failing to do so will make him an instrument of the Democrats' failure to win the elections. The same goes for Superdelegates who have not expressed public support for Mr. Obama yet. Remember: too late is always too late! Save the Party!

  25. Voice that matters.

    Something is fishing here with Elezabeth story making headline again on CNN.

    Are day going to fight for v.p?

    No no no we seen that before Edward v.p bid doesn't help candidate.
    He is too hangry on debates.
    Please go spen you riches pursuing business politic is not your thing.

    Maybe you can run for governor or go back to lawfirm .

    Your mansion is 4 times bigger than Obama and no one questioned you where you got your money from.

    Mansion that helicopter can land on is too huge for someone who doesn't own a business.
