Wishes and Wonderment
Mrs. John Edwards, The wife of the Presidential candidate, has announced that her cancer is in resurgence and has manifested in her bones. This is a cause for sadness; it’s a story that strikes close to my own family history and I send her every best wish for her health.
What does strike me as possibly unsavory is her husband’s desire to continue the long, arduous campaign for the Presidency. John Edwards is both an underdog and a very wealthy person; it’s not like he ‘needs the job’ or is anywhere close to becoming his party’s nominee. In such circumstances I would abandon the pursuit of power and concentrate on my terminally ill spouse.
