The Democratic presidential hopeful had said the only way he would drop out of the race was if his wife's cancer returned.
Fate called his bluff, and Edwards backed off it. So much so that the article linked above quotes him as saying they never seriously thought about it [dropping out of the race.]
I don't know what conversations they had. I don't know what her wishes were. I don't know what their resolve is. I don't know why he wants to be president. But I know this. I'm a husband of just about the best wife anyone could ever hope for. And if she were, God forbid, diagnosed with a critical illness my world would stop.
For Edwards to proudly boast that this will not deter his presidential bid only makes me dislike him more. And yes, I admit, I disliked him in the first place. But I think I would dislike Moses if he made this decision. It disgusts me to my core. I believe it is based on a greedy nature that is bent on gaining power, fame, fortune, and notariety.
God bless her. I hope our Lord and Savior reaches out and cures her, outworking the most hopeful prognosis. But I just cannot understand his decision.
