John and Elizabeth Edwards Legally Separated

In Tell-All-Book, Ex-Edwards Aide Says Couple Discussed How Cancer Would Help in the Polls

By JAMES HILL, NADINE SHUBAILAT and LAUREN SHER

Jan. 27, 2010

With John Edwards' electrifying U.S. Senate win in 1998, it was his wife Elizabeth Edwards who captivated the nation. A strong, smart, resilient woman, she became one of her husband's greatest political strengths.

"He was young and good looking and charming [and] his wife did not fit Hollywood's central casting of what a political wife should look like. She was a little bit heavy-set. She was an attorney in her own right. She was somebody who was his intellectual equal, if not intellectual superior. She let people know that," said Democratic political consultant Joe Sinsheimer. "John was the dashing figure and Elizabeth was the anchor and that's the way they sold themselves to the people of North Carolina."

But behind their public persona as the golden couple, during his second run for president, there was another side to Elizabeth Edwards who was secretly dealing with the slow leakage of her husband's affair and her cancer diagnosis.

As a torrent of fresh details from the scandal cascaded into the media today, a source close to Elizabeth Edwards told ABC News that she and John are now legally separated. Under North Carolina law they can't get divorced until at least a year later. John Edwards is no longer living at their home in Chapel Hill, ABC News has learned.

I'm surprised Mrs. Edwards waited this long...but then again, the timing is just right because her book is out.

From what I understand, he’s been horndogging at a favorite bar in Wilmington lately.

Not really a shock here.

I guess they mention that she was “heavy set” so one might begin to think it was okay that he started boning some other chick while she was sitting home sick [and fat].

Also: “ She was somebody who was his intellectual equal, if not intellectual superior. She let people know that,”

She doesn’t look so damn smart now, does she?

Wow, stunningly beautiful, dazzling smile, that coquettish ‘look’ on the face, the artfully coiffed hair, it just takes your breath away.

Elizabeth doesn’t look half bad either.

Yeah, I'm not showing much activity on the sympathy meter. She was an enabler for that sleazebag.

“ She was somebody who was his intellectual equal, if not intellectual superior. She let people know that,” She doesn’t look so damn smart now, does she?

Not that being John-boy's "intellectual equal" is saying a whole helluva lot. Neither one of them is exactly as sharp as a Ginsu knife.

They are perfect for eachother. Both are opportunists that know no limits and both are flaming LIBERALS.

BTW, isn’t Elizabeth dying of cancer?
