    John Edwards, the guy that was running for President at some point - he cheated on his wife, has a kid with his mistress I think, and it was a big to-do in the news. His wife had breast cancer and she died of it today.

    He's a big turd if you ask me.

    Its a sad loss to see her go. Her last book "Resiliance" shows how wonderful a person she really was. How she overcame all the adversity of her life, cancer, her husband the turd, its an inspiring story.

    Also, I wish that instead of just using this sad occasion to bash her husband, that people will remember what she did and what she believed in - how much she really cared for others who were suffering, was a huge advocate for universal health care and fought hard to increase awareness about the need for cancer research.

    he was John Kerry's running mate. And it turns out that the affair started during the campaign.

    You can dwell on her husband if you like, but it does not change the fact that Elizabeth and her legacy on health care reform will be long remembered in history. Here's an excerpt from Ezra Klein in the Washington Post about this:

    Quote Originally Posted by Ezra Klein, Washington Post, Dec 8, 2010
    "But Edwards's real impact on health-care reform was much larger than people realize. She pushed her husband to make a comprehensive and universal health-care reform plan the centerpiece of his second presidential campaign. She succeeded. John Edwards was the first of the major Democratic candidates to come out with a universal health-care plan, and his proposal, combined with the warm reception it received from major Democratic interest groups and constituencies, forced both Obama and Clinton to counter with their own universal health-care plans. (Additionally, when Obama flew to North Carolina to court Edwards's endorsement, he got into an argument with Elizabeth over the individual mandate -- an argument that, as you can see from the individual mandate in the health-care law, she eventually won.)
    The end result was that the three candidates ended up fighting over who would do more to pass a universal health-care bill the fastest, which meant they made repeated promises that, in Obama's case, he eventually found himself having to keep. Without Elizabeth Edwards's involvement, the Edwards campaign would likely have come out with a more modest effort, and the Obama and Clinton campaigns would have taken a similarly incremental approach, and none of the campaigns would have made as many promises on the subject as they did, and health-care reform might never have passed.

    That -- and not marital betrayal, or even cancer -- is Elizabeth Edwards's legacy. It may not be how she's remembered, and it may not be what leads her obituaries, but it's what she did. And as a policy wonk, Edwards knew full well that it's what gets done, not what gets said, that matters. I've met a lot of politicians and presidential candidates since that evening at her house. But looking back, the one I'm proudest to have known was her."
