Elizabeth Edwards (1949-2010)

Love or hate her husband, former Senator, Vice Presidential Candidate and Presidential hopeful, John Edwards, his lovely wife, Elizabeth Anania Edwards, was always the best thing he had going for him. Elizabeth Edwards truly had it going on, man…grace, charm, smarts, warmth and the very refreshing ability to cut through the noise around her and get to the heart of any issue.

And the way she dealt with the sad, tumultuous final chapter of her life? Wow, we should all live and die with such class and dignity. In my mind, there hasn’t been a more insanely-qualified shoulda-been First Lady since Tipper Gore, and I mean that as the highest of compliments.

Rest in peace sweet, beautiful Elizabeth Edwards, you will be missed…

Johnny, we hardly knew ya…

After hyping him up for months — actually years, if you go back to the 2004 election! — Christine and I have officially stepped off the John Edwards train this week. I know what you’re thinking, Clinton cheated too and we still love him…but the big difference is that President Clinton’s wife wasn’t dying of cancer!

I’m not condoning cheating, but I do think that what Edwards did was way worse and way more surprising. I mean, come on, Clinton just looks like a cheater. But our boy Edwards? What the hell, dude?! Your kick ass wife is bravely battling cancer and you’re screwing around with some butter face campaign lackey? Not cool, man. Not cool…

And if the reports from the National Inquirer are to be believed — and why shouldn’t they be? They’ve been right about everything else so far — and Edwards really has a love child with this chick, then, wow…you take the cake Johnny! Seriously, what were you thinking?

All I can say is thank God Edwards didn’t get the Democratic Presidential nomination this year! Can you imagine the shit storm this would have caused if he had? Whew…what a nightmare. Get you act together, dude!
