"Why did Elizabeth Edwards write her new book?"
Why did Elizabeth Edwards write her new book?
[Does it have a CD-ROM insert featuring the many poses of the Silky Pony?]
I honestly don't get her motivation for writing about her husband's affair. Pay back? wanting to get her side of the story out? She's bringing up something that had pretty much died down in the public sphere. Now, with her book and her public appearances, it will be all over the MSM again. How does this impact her young children? Just seems a strange thing to do.
[Yeah, she should just suffer in silence as her hubby continues to lie. And now to the rest of the DUmmies...]
A Woman on the Verge of Divorce Needs Some Lawyer Money
[Take him for every last penny!]
it just seems weird to write something about this now, while her kids are still young and in a vulnerable place.
[Maybe Johnny should have thought of that when his mistress easily seduced him the first time at the hotel bar.]
Edw went on to run for prez AFTER Eliz KNEW about the affair. WHAT A SCUM BAG!
[Edw was Pied Piper Pitt's secret choice which he told us about only AFTER he was safely out of the race.]
So she can ask her husband to help proofread and stuff... "Honey, tell me what's a better title for Chapter Six, 'My Bastard Husband Tore My Heart Out,' or 'Someday I'll Kill The Son-of-a-Bitch in his Sleep.'"
This need to splat your personal experiences all over the tabloids is a bit too much for me. What ever happened to the stiff upper lip?
[Put some ice on it.]
To call the paramour "Pathetic" in the public square, perhaps?
This hasn't died down--that baby is the offspring of JE. The girlfriend was getting ready to go public, according to some sources. Imagine how that little girl will feel as she grows up and realizes that Daddy spent a few years of her life denying her?
[She is just a DNA test away from claiming a big chunk of that NC palace.]
Refusal to acknowledge one's child. To me, that is even lower than cheating on a cancer-stricken wife.
[Even lower than claiming you made big bucks at a hedge fund in order to study poverty?]
There are more than a few contenders for father of that child.
[I think the number of contenders has pretty much been narrowed down to one.]
How many visited the kid at 3:00 a.m. before trying to leave through the basement? Don't even try to call me a "hater". I supported JE, traveled hours to hear him, got his autograph.
[And if you told him that he was "hot" you could have borne a love child as well.]
John has asked her to take a paternity test and she refuses to do so. That tells me she's afraid of the world finding out the truth. For all we know, it's another kid from the same fertility doctor as octomom's. It does raise the issue though, that until the child is completely tested, it is always going to be her word against his. And anyone who blames him without proof is just talking with and to a brick wall, and has absolutely zero credibility doing so.
[One look at that baby's face pretty well shows that any DNA test would be a mere formality.]
Calling her pathetic is pathetic....I really do believe the book is just an attempt to soothe a wounded ego by portraying her husband as a victim the way Hillary Clinton did.
[Pathetically posted the DUmmie.]
Rielle Hunter is pathetic but Elizabeth Edwards doesn't grow in stature by stating the obvious.
[So she should just grin and bear it?]
I feel sorry for Mrs. Edwards. I think she got f*cked over, emotionally, spiritually, and worst of all--IN PUBLIC-- by an asshole of a husband.
[Is that you, Elizabeth?]
maybe she has money, but she is still fighting for her life, and her self. if i were her, my regrets would be unfathomably deep. i would be thinkin' lorena bobbit.
[Uh-oh! I sure hope John is sleeping while wearing a cast iron athletic supporter.]
It's a "short book" they say. Doesn't address "the baby" at all....you know, "the baby" that is the spit image of her husband.
[No DNA test necessary.]
Writing this book shows that she is still not acting completely rationally. JRE really created a nightmare for his entire family and possibly an innocent little girl who may have trouble when she learns of her father.
[An ambulance chaser done in by a paternity suit. Karma.]
My best guess is that this has to do with 1) money, as there's no such thing as "enough" money; 2) attention - those in the limelight grow accustomed to it being there; and/or 3) she wants to run for office herself and grabbing enough of #1 and #2 would certainly help her.
[Or 4) payback.]
The big question is... will she do the book pimping interviews with or without her hubby...
[She should go on Maury Povich and then John Edwards shows up for a "You the Daddy" episode.]
$he's just trying to get her $ide of the $tory out there.
[Is that you, Bev Harri$?]
John and Elizabeth rock! Always have, always will!
[It sounds like Miss Hunter was the one doing the rocking.]
My one regret is that I supported Edwards in the primaries.
[Fool me once, fool me once again.]
I don't get all the sympathy here - she was a partner in the cover-up of her husband's affair and had he been the nominee or considered for VP he could have destroyed the 2008 election. She could have outed him and his lies. Now she wants to make a profit off the story. bah. Greedy.
[Unlike the saintly Barack Obama.]
