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.
