Backlash, shmacklash… frontlash…who cares? Elizabeth Edwards does not owe anyone an explanation. There need not be a why and nor an answer. She wrote a book, yes a book about her life – freedom of____? (Yes, that is correct) ………..SPEECH! Then like every celebrity author she is on a book tour. When a famous personality suddenly appears on every single talk show from morning’s Matt Lauer to evening’s Larry King, they are generally fulfilling the terms of their publishing contract. So please she did not spill the beans today on TV she wrote a book about her life’s hardship and how she coped may well serve as an inspiration for other spouses subjected to dying and deceiving spouses all in one blow.
