It has not been a good week for John Edwards. First came the embarrassing release of the YouTube “primping video.” Then came the devastating news that cancer has recurred–in an incurable but treatable form–in Elizabeth, his wife of 30 years.
Edwards, committed to his long-shot campaign for the presidency, has decided to remain in the race. It’s either a case of blind ambition or a sense of divine calling. The Edwards family, regardless, should be in our prayers. Politics is not for the faint of heart.
