I Told You So: Elizabeth Edwards on HOprah, Today

By Debbie Schlussel
**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ****
I said it was shameful that John Edwards would stay in the Presidential race if his wife truly has terminal (or even serious) cancer. Back in the fall, in an interview with The Buffalo News, I said that her cancer book was just another tool to get back on Oprah and appeal to women during the campaign.
And guess what? Surprise!–Elizabeth Edwards is back on Oprah, today. Just as I predicted. And very predictable.
“My wife has cancer”–the new Presidential campaign marketing tool.

**** UPDATE: Glenn Bartley of Ballseye’s Boomers tips me to today’s New York Post exclusive, “Edwards Cashing In on Wife’s Cancer,” detailing John Edwards campaign solicitations of Mrs. Edwards’ well-wishers and other similarly sleazy Edwards tactics.

Debbie, I think it’s even worse than that. If you could look up “scumball lawyer” in the dictionary there’d be a picture of John Edwards. He trots Elizabeth out as the anti-trophy wife to sanitize his poor image.

PR move for Edwards. Vote for me out of sympathy for my wife situation.

Gee, imagine the boost in the polls Edwards could enjoy if Ofrah would televise live any cancer surgeries Mrs. Edwards might have to undergo? Think of the ratings boost Ofrah would also get. If, God forbid, Mrs. Edwards should succumb to her illness and Ofrah could televise that live, as well, John Edwards would automatically become president thanks to the fawning of the Lamestream Media and the airheads who watch Ofrah. And, of course, Ofrah would want any of the above to concur with Ratings Sweep.

Don’t worry, Oprah’s heart still belongs to Obama.

I do believe he is being an opertunist (sp sorry) to use his wives illness to raise his opinion polls, but imagine the media, and the presidential approval ratings, if a first lady died while her husband was in office.
