After all the bad things that have happened to Elizabeth Edwards, death of a son, terminal cancer and then recurrence of cancer, and her husbands misconduct; all of which in her words left her 'wounded', I think she seized this moment to fight back. Was it proper to do publically or politically, I don't know, but I do understand the feeling of empowerment she must have felt at this moment. I'm reminded of a scene from the movie Network, where the anchorman says he is not going to take it any longer and tells his listeners to open their windows and scream 'I'm not taking it anymore.' Perhaps she did. Leave her alone, leave them alone, they will find a personal path.
