Elizabeth, Not John, Gets Ripped in the MSM

"...Two weeks after a devastating revelation sent her husband into political exile, Elizabeth Edwards isn't getting the steady sympathy usually afforded to a woman scorned.
Elizabeth Edwards, pictured with John Edwards in May, has been criticized for the way she handled his affair.

Elizabeth Edwards, pictured with John Edwards in May, has been criticized for the way she handled his affair.

Instead, she's faced criticism from dedicated Democrats who think she was too willing to keep the affair a secret to help John Edwards' political ambitions, as well as her own.

It seems an odd way to treat a woman with incurable cancer wronged by a cheating husband, the latest in a series of deep hardships in life that includes the death of a teenage son.

But some former followers have questioned the recklessness of keeping the affair under wraps even though her husband -- a former U.S. senator, two-time presidential candidate and the 2004 vice presidential nominee -- said he confessed the affair in 2006, before the campaign began in earnest the next year.

"I think she's complicit," said Brad Crone, a Raleigh-based Democratic consultant. "Obviously, she knew. While she's the victim, she clearly didn't stand in the way of the cover-up." (source)

OMG, I'm not professing any certain love for Elizabeth Edwards...but in all fairness was an article like this EVER written about Hillary in the MSM?! She "was complicit" in how many affairs and at least one love child we've heard rumors of. Why does Hillary get a pass and dying Elizabeth a tongue lashing?

...I'll never understand left-wing politics. But, I guess that's a good thing.
