PLEASE LEAVE THIS SPECIAL LADY ALONE, LET HER
AND HER FAMILY DEAL WITH THIS SITUATION!

Lyn, I saw you ON Dan's programme last eve. I thought thee wert sensitive and spot on! I am dealing with something similiar with the former prime minister TONY BLAIR AND HIS MISTRESS WHO BELIEVE IT OR NOT TIS CHERIE BOOTH BLAIR! THERE HATH BEEN A 19 YEAR AGREEMENT BETWEEN ME AND MY ESTRANGED HUSBAND THAT FINALLY EXPIRE ON AUG. 30,2008! katie tis my daugher as thee full wellth knowth katie or leo DOES NOT LOOK LIKE NONE OF CHERIE'S FAMILY! FOR GOOD REASON! THEIR MARRAIGE TWAS ONLY POLITICAL THEATER!BEING RESPECTFUL OF ELIZABETH AND THE EDWARDS CHILDREN IAM SURE TIS VERY MUCH APPRECIATED AS I TWOULD IN MY VERY DIFFICULT AND PAINFUL SITUTION!

Phil, if that was a republican's wife or some politicians wife you didn't like, would you feel the same? Be honest?

Also, my take is she isn't so innocent. First of all, I hope she miraculously recovers from the cancer. But that doesn't excuse her since she knew of her husband's infidelity since '06. Yet, was content to go along. That tells me the lure of power and prestige also engulfed her like it did her husband.

YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN ME ATTACK JOHN MCCAIN'S WIFE
OR ANY WOMEN SINCE I'VE BEEN BLOGGING!
IT DOESN'T MATTER TO ME WHAT PARTY THEY ARE
CONNECTED TO, THE EDWARD'S SITUATION IS A VERY
DELICATE ISSUE, AND I SUGGEST THAT EVERYONE CHILL
OUT ABOUT THIS MATTER!
STOP WATCHING FOX NEWS!

Phil is challenged when it comes to women--know why? the use of the word 'lady' and 'special'--aren't all women special? Aren't all MEN?
Don't they have an OBLIGATION to not put up a charade when common men and woman are giving up their time and money to put up signs, make phone calls, canvass in other states, and, of course DONATE THEIR MONEY TO A PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE WHO COULD NEVER HAVE WON GIVEN WHAT ELIZABETH KNEW?
