    This is one woman I admire tremendously. I think she'd have made a great First lady. All the best, Elizabeth Edwards.

    I read the earlier article and it seems like her husband, Senator Edwards has similar views as Senator Clinton. I hope he stands up for Hillary.
    It would be the best ticket...Clinton/Edwards.

    We love you Elizabeth, but upon reading further, Did you just
    endorse Hillary for your husband. Oh No. Hillary is a "politics
    as usual liar". I think you just endorsed Hillary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Absolutely
    not. Obamas Health Care Plan is just as good if not more caring
    to people who cannot afford Health Care at all. This is a sham.
    Elizabeth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    OBAMA OR NO ONE 2008 or no one, Mrs. Edwards!!!!!!!!

    I am very happy for her don't get me wrong. I hope all the best for her but...................Why all of the press all of a sudden? Are you setting us up for something? Her husband is wasteing away on the sidelines and this is a way to boost his image??

    John Edwards is just another self serving fence sitter. If he goes with Hillary then I will have to believe all of the " Ambulance chaser" stuff I heard about him. Is there noone in washington who sticks by their guns??

    Mrs. Edwards please tell your husband to either get back in the race or quit . He is taking important votes away from the other 2 candidates.Please tell us he isn't holding out until August so he can throw his delegates out at the last minute to send one of them over the edge to win it all!

    I truly admire her will and the manner she seems to handle adversity. Well done considering her loss of a child, mothering young children, campaign losses and her own current cancer. What a nice lady. Best wishes.

    Truly someone I would have been proud to call our First Lady. He bowed out too quickly. She is awesome and even better in person.

    We dumb down our education curriculum and then wonder why American companies outsource their intellectual jobs....

    The richest, most successful man to ever have attended Harvard was a drop out, Bill Gates. Hmmm.......

    Elizabeth, I was so happy to see you and in reading further, I realized
    that there was an another motive for your "coming out" Excuse me,
    but had Hillary promised you Husband, John the V.P. job? Yes,
    I know that Pa. Gov Rendall has been promised the Sec of Energy
    job IF she wins. That would be a travesty if John would go for a
    very unlikable woman who would hurt America by her, "
    old politics",. The truth will come out but please do not hurt Obama.
    No one wants another liar. We have been lied to enough and Americans crave the truth. Wonder Why???????????????????
