Don’t you think that Elizabeth made the right choice by moving on with her life?

Elizabeth Edwards is now legally separated from her philandering husband, John Edwards, who admitted on Jan. 21 that he fathered a daughter by campaign videographer Rielle Hunter in 2008, reports CNN.

The 56-year-old former Democratic presidential candidate issued a statement today, Jan. 27, calling his separation, “an extraordinarily sad moment, but I love my children more than anything and still care deeply about Elizabeth.”

Whatever else Elizabeth, 60, must be feeling right now, relief is probably the most prominent emotion. Her publisher, Random House, issued a statement saying, “Elizabeth is moving on with her life and wants to put this difficult chapter behind her. It was an excruciatingly painful period for her and she [has] no interest in rehashing the past.”

Good luck, Elizabeth. If anyone deserves a clean slate, it’s you.

Yes, I believe Elizabeth did the right thing. Absolutely. As for the first commenter – get a life. Wow. What a bitter antagonist.

obgyn, i don’t think it’s necessary for a post to be made about every man that cheats on his husband. nor a summary of all the others every time a new one gets caught in the club. there wouldn’t be enough room.

as for elizabeth. i admire her for this difficult choice. i don’t know how much longer she has to live, and she doesn’t want to live it angry or spiteful, so i hope that clearing that negative force out of her vision will do wonders to keep her in a peaceful mental place in her final days, months, years. life is too short to have that disappointment shoved in your face every day. what a disappointment that guy turned out to be to the world, and more importantly, to her. i hate those syrupy sweet fake-ass politicians. he’s no better than the club-hopping 20-something… in fact, worse than a john mayer b/c john mayer never pretended to be righteous enough to be our leader. john edwards, foo. you’re pathetic, and disgusting, if it’s possible to be both at the same time. elizabeth, i wish i knew you and my respect meant something to you- b/c i would shower you with it, and tell you how brave you are! i imagine at this point in your life, you know what is best for you and your kids, and i’m sure this wasn’t an easy choice to make, but kudos to you for taking charge of your life.

Where was the outrage when Rudy Guiliani of New York,
cheated on his sick wife, and moved his mistress ( he had not been divorced) into the house with his wife still living there. Women all over the U.S. should have been outraged. What about Newt Gingrich cheating on his cancer stricken wife then divorcing her while she was fighting the cancer? And there are many other’s.

Have you told South Carolina’s Senator Sanford’s wife she
deserves a man who will worship her, and she should leave him? I guess the hardest thing for a person to be is fair, across the board.
